Keir will be taking part in a film festival in their hometown of Fairfield with the screening of three films, among them will be ALL ME ALL THE TIME and Keir’s screen debut from 1961 HOODLUM PRIEST. Information below.

Theatre Artists Workshop 2015 Film Festival

Theatre Artists Workshop will screen four award-winning Connecticut-based films in its second annual TAW Film Festival the weekend of March 20th through 22nd. Reprising last year’s successful format, the festival will give audiences the opportunity to interact with the filmmakers in a talkback after each screening. A donation of $10 is suggested for each show, or $20 for a weekend pass. No reservations are necessary. Popcorn will be sold!

On Friday night, March 20, at 8 PM, screenwriter Susan Cinoman hosts a screening of her films, “All Me All the Time” (2009, 75 minutes), and “Love and Class in Connecticut” (2007, 40 minutes). Directed by Ms. Cinoman’s husband, Doug Tenaglia, and starring TAW actors Mia Dillon, Keir Dullea, and Sachi Parker, “All Me” is about two girls partying wildly on the night of their high school graduation while their parents marriages unravel. “Love and Class” stars TAW actors Joanna Keylock, Carol Schweid, and Bill Phillips, and was also directed by Doug Tenaglia. The film, about the arrival of the uninvited black sheep sister at a baby naming ceremony, won “Best Narrative” at the the New England Film and Video Festival and was a “Judge’s Choice” at the Connecticut Film Festival.

On Saturday March 21st, at 8 PM, the Workshop’s founding member, Keir Dullea, will host the a screening of “The Hoodlum Priest” (1961, 101 minutes), the film in which he made his debut portraying Billy Lee Jackson, a doomed, troubled youth. Based on the real-life Jesuit priest, Charles Clark, a minister to street gangs in 1959 Saint Louis, the film was directed by Irvin Kershner, and written by Joseph Landon and Don Murray. Winner of the OCIC Award at the Cannes Film Festival, 1961, “The Hoodlum Priest” was named to the National Board of Review USA Top Ten Films of 1961. Mr. Dullea later achieved fame as astronaut David Bowman in American Film Institute’s #1 sci-fi film of all time, “2001: A Space Odyssey,” directed by Stanley Kubrick.

On Sunday, March 22nd, at 3:00, Sachi Parker will host a viewing of “The Wicked Witch of the West is Dead” (2008, 115 minutes), a family drama with English subtitles about a troubled high school student sent to live in the country with her wise and “witchy” grandmother (Parker). Shot in Japan, directed by Shunichi Nagasaki and written by Kaho Nashiki and Kaori Mizushima, the film was an award winner at the Mainichi Film Concours in 2009. Sachi’s films include: “Back To The Future” (1985), “About Last Night” (1986), and “Peggy Sue Got Married” (1986). Sachi is also author, with Fred Stroppel, of “Lucky me: My Life With – with and without-My Mom, Shirley Maclaine”, published in 2013.

Keir and Mia’s film ALL ME, ALL THE TIME is available on Youtube. Please feel free to go over and view it there and leave a comment. A wonderful play written by Susan Cinoman and directed by Doug Tenaglia. The film is a study on marriage and what it takes to break it, which may not be much. The film also stars John Augustine, Janine Barris, Siri Baruc, and Sachi Parker. All in all a wonderful little film.

Wellfleet to Stage CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, Begin. 8/29
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

A little more about Keir and Mia’s upcoming revival of the Tennessee Williams play CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF.

Wellfleet to Stage CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, Begin. 8/29

Real life husband and wife Keir Dullea and Mia Dillon play the classic couple ‘Big Daddy’ and ‘Big Mama’ in Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize Winning play, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, opening August 31 at Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater (WHAT).

Since starring in the classic 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, Dullea has starred in both films and plays. He’s especially excited to play Big Daddy in this production because he played Brick, Big Daddy’s son, in the 1974 Broadway production with Elizabeth Ashley and Fred Gwynne. “Gwynne was magnificent as Big Daddy,” Dullea says of the man to whom he has dedicated this performance. “He inspired me to want to play that role. His voice rings in my ears today. I’ll be reaching deep to find that voice within myself.”

Mia Dillon won a Tony nomination for her role as ‘Babe’ in the original 1981 Broadway play Crimes of the Heart. She has had a very strong presence in the theater world, starring in such shows as Our Town with Paul Newman, Da and Agnes of God among others. Dillon sees ‘Big Mama’ as deeply in love with her husband and riding an emotional roller coaster from elation as she believes he is cured of cancer, to despair as she discovers he’s dying. Dillon appreciates that the genius of Williams’ poetic writing gives her the chance as an actor “to explore deep emotions in the safe place of the stage.”

Dullea and Dillon have been married 15 years and have enjoyed performing together often. Soon after they met while reading Selected Shorts for NPR, they played together in Noel Coward’s Private Lives. Right after they were married, they toured in Death Trap, in which Keir’s character killed Mia’s off every night. Most recently they both appear in the film Isn’t it Delicious.

Director Elizabeth Falk has also cast newcomers Madeleine Lambert as Maggie and Steven De Marco as Brick. Like Williams, Falk was born in the South, and she is especially sensitive to the musicality of his writing. “Even punctuation is important to capturing the music. It must be honored to get the sound Williams wanted to hear.” Falk has directed 64 productions of drama, musical theatre and opera at Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, and Off-Broadway, as well as in many overseas countries. She was the first woman to ever direct at Shakespeare’s Globe in London.

From Wellfleet, this production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof continues on to the Tennessee Williams Festival in Provincetown, for four performances at Town Hall (206 Commercial Street, Provincetown), September 27, 7:30 pm; September 28, 2:00 pm & 8:00 pm; and September 29, 4:00 pm.

Tickets: Premium Seating: $37; Family Circle: $27; Under 18 or with Student ID: $10
Box Office: 508-349-WHAT (9428) www.what.org
