    A STORY JONES 2019

    written & directed by Scott Shannon
    In memory of an Unseen Shadow

    A STORY JONES is our Nasty creation celebrating the life and spirit of a Shadow who stepped into the light, our friend Andrew Jones.

    JONES is a storyteller, telling tales to a small friendly community in a world hungry for such gatherings, but tonight might be his last story. VIC has been selflessly caring for JONES, protecting JONES from outsiders when CHAEL suddenly (re-)appears (?) in the story circle. Driven by forces beyond and within their control, CHAEL’s dramatic purpose in the room precipitates the most inevitable conclusion, or so it seemed to suggest in the BOOK.

    The development of A STORY JONES began with an idea in the spring of 2013. As the writing grew it was played off a number of veteran Shadows in various rehearsal rooms over the last few years, and then finally worked into the play we now present. This is not a history; this is a fantasy story memorial.

    The Lunchbox Interview: Scott Shannon (Nasty Shadows presents A Story Jones)


    Have you ever *heard* a Shadow on the radio? Now’s your chance 🎭 — Scott sat down with Mark Kilfoil today on THE LUNCHBOX on CHSR FM Official to chat about A STORY JONES, Nasty Shadows, and the creative process — link through to listen to the interview!

    “My guest today is Scott Shannon, co-founder of Nasty Shadows Theatre Company, and writer/director/actor of their upcoming production A Story Jones. He joins me to talk about how this play got started as a tribute, how it has grown collaboratively, and how he seeks to try to be a very different kind of theatre company.

    A Story Jones opens at 7:30pm on May 1 at Memorial Hall on UNB Campus, and is staged for only two days before moving on to Saint John and Moncton. Each performance has a deliberately limited 20 seats, so be sure to get your ticket right away.”
