The hit of Ice Factory 2015 returns to the New Ohio!
Featuring: Jaime Maseda, Matteo Scammell, Scott Sheppard, Bill George, and introducing George Truman
HOLDEN is a tragicomic piece, plumbing a darker dimension of J.D. Salingerís famous novel, The Catcher in the Rye. A few obsessive super-fans have taken up residence in Salingerís private writing bunker. Unbeknownst to the reclusive author himself, their mission to get Salinger to publish once more spirals into a larger excavation of violence in America and the male imagination.

George & Co. was founded in 2009 as a platform for original performances and films that grow out of collaborative research and spontaneous play. It creates complex hybrid works that cross-breed contradictory aesthetics and artistic disciplines, while digging into impenetrable messes of culture, history and identity. George & Co.'s work has been seen at FringeArts (Philadelphia), The Ice Factory Festival (NYC), AUX Performance Space (Philadelphia), Underground Arts (Philadelphia), The Brick (NYC), The Hive (London, UK), Chisenhale Dance Space (London, UK), Kontainer (Bilbao, Spain), and Underbelly (Edinburgh, UK). George & Co. was nominated for Best Ensemble at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, for its production of The Seer and received a Theater Communications Grant (TCG) to collaborate in Buenos Aires, Argentina with the company LindaLinda. georgeandco.org
Holden was originally presented as part of the 2015 Ice Factory, a program of New Ohio Theatre.
