Talkback with playwright featured after Saturday's performance of
Cow-Tipping and Other Signs of Stress

Sirius Idaho Theatre (SIT) successfully opened the world premiere of
Cow-Tipping and Other Signs of Stress, a new comedy by Gregory Fletcher, now
showing at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre in Moscow through September
30th. The September 23 performance includes a talkback at the end of the
evening with playwright Gregory Fletcher, visiting Moscow from New York City
for the world premiere of his play. Moscow's opening night audience proved
why Fletcher's play won the 2005 American College Theatre Festival Mark
Twain Prize for Comic Playwriting at the Kennedy Center. 

A romantic dramedy laced with farce and cows, this play includes adult
themes and brief nudity. Undiscovered playwright Christopher Post has
persevered through years of rejection letters. Supported by Hilary Post, his
pediatrician wife and biggest fan, Christopher has nothing to show for his
efforts except a drawer crammed full of rejection letters from theaters
around the country. After asking the universe for a sign that he's on the
right path, and while attempting to sell his latest play to Tina Boyette, a
struggling off-Broadway producer, Christopher runs into Gareth Webster, an
old college buddy who works for Christopher's playwriting idol Ward
Edington. Christopher begins sneaking, stealing, hiding, conniving, teasing,
and fighting, and his life continues to snowball from there.  Saving his
marriage and career will be the hardest rewrite of his life. 

Christopher Post is played by James (JJ) Johnston, a University of Idaho MFA
candidate. Last year JJ acted in the University of Idaho productions A Flea
in Her Ear and Boy Gets Girl. Hilary Post is played by Chris Stordahl, a
second year University of Idaho MFA candidate in Costume Design and
Technology. Some of her past productions include Wit, Stop Kiss and Ghosts.
Tina Boyette is played by Andriette Pieron, founding board member of Sirius
Idaho Theatre and Director of Neill Public Library, previously seen in Steel
Magnolias. Gareth Webster is played by Luke Daigle, who graduated this past
May with a BFA in performance from the University of Idaho Department of
Theatre and Film. This summer Daigle performed in IRT's Schoolhouse Rock and
Comedy of Errors. Directed by WSU theatre professor Stan Brown, Cow-Tipping
and Other Signs of Stress portrays life issues and alternate lifestyles in
positive ways.

Individual tickets and Sirius Idaho Theatre season passes are available at
BookPeople of Moscow, the Moscow Farmers' Market and the Kenworthy box
