Shetler Studios & Theatres

Teenage Charlotte’s beautiful mother is dead. In the midst of her own grief, and her father’s unwillingness to cope, she finds herself searching in fantasy for what she cannot find in reality. Charlotte turns for comfort to the story of Helen of Troy, convinced that beauty, desire, and fame can help bring her mother back and punish the world that took her away in the first place.

The cast features Allison Wick (Charlotte), Ken Schatz* (Harry), Shannon Cabbell (Heather), Luke Wehner* (Franklin), Joseph Virgo (Freddie), and James Goodnight (Gary), with set design by Jennilee Aromando, lighting design by Natalie Avery, and costume design by Amanda Lionetti.

-An AEA approved Showcase-

"Allison Wick is pitch-perfect as the troubled Charlotte, whose infatuation with Helen of Troy as a model of beauty allows her to explore and fantasize about her darker impulses as a means of teenage escape.…a terrific lead actress."

- ReneGrayre Show Score

“Hunger Theatre has revived Mark Schultz’s ‘Everything Will Be Different’ (2005) in a strong bare-bones production distinguished by a bravura, unsparing performance by Allison Wick as the central character Charlotte...sometimes harrowing, sometimes creepy, sometimes poignant, never boring.”

- Jim Jim Jim, Show Score.

“Great acting. Great writing. Must see...This is the kind of theater that makes me love living in New York.”
