The Hive

Shannon Sexton Potter and the Hive were in residence at the Egg, while the website was down.  Here is a bit of information about them:



My name is Shannon Sexton Potter and I am a Theater Maker based in Providence, RI.  I have been commissioned to develop and direct a new work for Andy’s Summer Playhouse. This is a children’s experimental theater in New Hampshire that focuses on the empowerment of the child’s voice through new works of theater. 


 I have decided to write about the life and journalistic adventures of Nellie Bly, one of the first female reporters to gain fame in the late 1800’s for her remarkable investigative journalism. She was most well known for her record breaking trip around the world in 1889, in which she attempted to break the record of the fictional story by Jules Verne “Around the World in 80 Days.” She not only succeeded against all odds, but she did it in 72 days, alone, with nothing but a small handbag. For this particular production, which will be in July of this year, the focus will have to be on movement, due to the fact that this will be the company’s touring show with very limited technical aspects. Ultimately, the show will be performed with 15 children from the ages of 8-18.

My time at the egg has always been so wonderful and essential to the development of my work. I have been blessed to have utilized this amazing creative environment several times over the past 7 years. I want to thank you for the opportunities that I have already received.
