IN A FLASH: Cemetery Calling

Cemetery Calling


Earlier this year, Convergence Continuum "Cleveland's up close and OUT there Theatre" hosted the premiere of  Cemetery Calling,  a play by Eric Mansfield that is set in Cleveland's landmark Lakeview Cemetery and tells a story connected to a historic tragedy in the city's Collinwood neighborhood.

Cemetery Calling


Mansfield is an award-winning playwright, an Emmy-winning TV journalist formerly with WKYC-TV, a retired U.S. Army officer and a Kent State alumnus who is an assistant vice president in Kent State's Division of University Communications and Marketing.  Cemetery Calling is the newest in a series of plays Mansfield has written from the Northeast Ohio Master of Fine Arts program. Others include Love in Reserve, The Baron of Brown Street, Whitesville and Trial by Fire. Trial by Fire, a story around the topic of banned books, will be coming to the stage at Kent State University in mid-October.
