It’s good to be king

We can expect future productions from TRIST, which began in 1971. The company hasn’t staged a play since the early ’90s, when Colonna, a Trinity Rep veteran, returned to acting. Its debut productions were with high school students at the Pawtucket Youth Center. TRIST subsequently moved to venues for years at a time, such as the Swanhurst Theater in Newport and the Foundry in Providence.

Site-specific locations have been numerous, such as aboard a ferry boat for The Tempest and at the pastoral Roger Williams Park for A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Occasionally, they have staged such non-Shakespearean plays as The Miser and The Lion in Winter. Company members who started at TRIST and went on to theater careers have included Ed Shea of 2nd Story Theater and Phyllis Kay of Trinity.
