Forget About Me
By Ward James Riley

Set & Lighting Designer: Andrew Irons
Costume Designer: Libby Brennes-Holtz
For three consecutive weekends beginning Friday, April 11th and running through Saturday, April 26th, the Westchester Collaborative Theater opened its 2014 season with its most robust mainstage production to date, the world premiere of Ward James Riley’s full-length play Forget About Me, directed by Jessica Davis Irons, former artistic director of NYC’s Andhow! Theatre Company.
Set against a backdrop of the Irish-American tenement world of New York during World War II, Forget About Me explores one family’s struggle with issues of race, religion, physical handicaps and morality, and a dangerous secret that hangs in the balance, threatening to implode and destroy everything in its wake.
Following its engagement at the Steamer Co. Firehouse Theater, Forget About Me went on tour at several Atria senior living facilities throughout Westchester County.
