Rachel Hockett & Arthur Bicknell
Co-founders of The Homecoming Players
The Homecoming Players theatre company was founded by director Hockett, and playwright Bicknell in 2011. Dedicated to contributing to the conversation in the arts-rich Ithaca community, the Homecoming Players look forward to collaborating with and developing local and national artists, and to creating a welcoming environment in which to rehearse and produce an eclectic mix of classic and new plays. In this conversation they talk about LGBT issues and the staging of the nationally acclaimed play 8 about the gay marriage fight in California.
