One River

Written and Directed by Tom Isbell 
A documentary theatre adaptation of One River, Many Stories, a community journalism effort, One River tells the stories of the St. Louis River watershed: Its people, its history, its future. A cautionary tale about the future of our most precious resource, water, and also a reminder that without place, there are no stories; without stories, there is no place.
Evocative. Whimsical. Poetic. Director Tom Isbell shared what he hopes to convey with this work, "I want to demonstrate that theatre is another way to tell stories. I want to support the One River, Many Stories initiative and encourage overlap of disciplines and different modes of storytelling. In the play itself, through the exploration of the St. Louis River and what it means to so many, I hope we can also come to find out what it is that each of us values, and, namely that value of Place."
“This moving theater presentation accomplishes what Isbell set out to do, blend a mosaic of many voices into one lyrical artistic whole, leaving the audience with the desire to go down to the oft-ignored river to see for themselves why it is such a glorious Northland treasure.” – Sheryl Jensen, Duluth News Tribune review (9/29/16)
