Created and performed by Bill DeMeritt and directed by Elia Monte-Brown.
Produced by ITE and Old Sound Room.
Bill DeMeritt is an orphan, an actor, a putz and maybe even a superhero. Now he makes his playwriting debut with Origin Story, an expansive theatrical memoir that explores how we incorporate loss and weave the seemingly discordant elements of life into a harmonious glow.
Old Sound Room’s latest production is a crowded stage of one in which Bill (Billy, William) tours us through space and time, painting a self portrait through the lens of the motley crew who shaped him into the man he is today.
