(New York, NY) - 2019 FRIGID Festival and Midtwenties Theatre Society is thrilled to present Persephone’s Cave, a full-length original play, from February 23rd to March 7th at the Kraine Theatre!
Set in Present Day Vancouver, "Persephone's Cave" tells the story of two outcast adolescents named Persephone (Aspiring filmmaker) and Hayden (Aspiring poet) who have chosen to escape the world by locking themselves away from the rest of society, for the rest of their lives, in the projector room of an old cinematheque.
An intimate drama that simultaneously embraces the claustrophobic minimalism of Beckett and the sprawling naturalism of Strindberg. Angsty monologues, metaphorical soliloquys, and bold chemistry come together in this first-ever international premiere of a Midtwenties Theatre original written by BEAU HAN BRIDGE and performed by talented Midtwenties Theatre Repertoire player SHELBY SATTERTHWAITE.
Playwright: Beau Han Bridge
Director/Dramaturg: Shelby Satterthwaite
Featuring: Beau Han Bridge & Shelby Satterthwaite
About Midtwenties Theatre Society….

Playwright Bio: Beau Han Bridge
Beau Han Bridge is a Chinese-Canadian director, writer, and actor that resides in Vancouver, British Columbia. In 2017, he created Midtwenties Theatre Society, a non-profit theatre company, to produce original plays that focus on adolescent stories and coming-of-age themes. He directed the company’s first two original productions of Above The Hospital and Molly Misbegotten (both penned by him) to critical acclaim and his work has received regular press coverage from several national media outlets and newspapers, including CBC and The Vancouver Sun. He has also produced several short films, one micro- budget feature-film, and is a regular actor with small-role appearances in CW’s Izombie (2019), Netflix’s adaptation of Death Note (2017), and CBC’s The Romeo Section (2016).
TESTIMONIALS on Beau Han Bridge & Shelby Satterthwaite:
- “Elijah, also played by Beau Han Bridge, is a hurricane of emotional turbulence masked with awkward laughs and self-deprecation. Beau Han Bridge played the character with surprisingly touching casual intimacy.” (Molly Misbegotten) – Bonnie Duff (Merely Players)
- “Especially compelling was the performance of Shelby Satterthwaite, who plays the role of Petra’s assistant. Satterthwaite is proof of that popular theatre trope that there are no small roles, only small actors. And in her role as Petra’s assistant, Satterthwaite is anything but small. She has no lines, but is on stage at all times, and the expressions she lets her character make are the most accurate indicator of Petra’s truth and lies at all times during this play.” (The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant) - Theatre Addicts
- “Beau Han Bridge has a promising future as a writer and performer .... this piece left me thinking about art, identity and relationships in my own life, which is indeed one of the very purposes this art form serves.” (Molly Misbegotten) – Bonnie Duff (Merely Players)
- “The bones of Beau Han Bridge’s story show the potential in the young playwright’s ability, telling ‘millennial’ stories without being prejudged by or alienating other demographics is a delicate balance.” (Above The Hospital) – Jay Minter (On The List)
