Winner of the 1992 Obie Award. This is the story of an American mega-artist so successful he's had the obligatory profile in Vanity Fair and can claim astronomical prices for his works sight unseen from a waiting list of wealthy patrons. In England for a retrospective of his paintings, the artist goes into the countryside to visit his original muse and lover, the "sacrificial shiksa" whom he abandoned in his quest for the opulent life which now devours him. " can tell when a play has gripped its audience, for no one seems to breathe, let alone shift in his seat. This phenomenon can be observed... at SIGHT UNSEEN, a smart and sad comedy by Donald Margulies." -NY Times.

Kathy Barickman Kathy Barickman
is excited about her third season with WFP. She has been playing in the dark backstage since high school and has stage managed productions throughout college and then with the Valley Players in Waitsfield, VT after moving here from upstate NY. When not playing in the theater, Kathryn can usually be found at her job as an environmental laboratory analyst in Williston or singing with St. Michael's College Liturgical choir. Occasionally she is even at home in Underhill with her husband, Jake, and their houseful of loving critters. She thanks her parents (both English teachers) for passing on their love of theater and her husband for his loving patience.
