COPAKE, NY —The Two Of Us Productions, the award winning theater company based in Columbia County NY, is pleased to present Girl With A Camera, a new work by Byron Nilsson Saturday evening June 5th, 2021 in the 8th production in their 2021 Virtual Live-Staged Reading Series.
How does a creative artist come to terms with sudden fame? Photographer Ivy Wilmot found success as a photo-journalist but became a public figure when she married a movie star. As the marriage unraveled, so too did her career. There was another man in love with her – but he was the FBI agent investigating her father. Girl With A Camera shows us a life that couldn’t be constrained in the borders of a photograph.
