Insignia Films Storytelling that Sheds Light on the Human Condition

Cornerstone
The feature-length documentary Cornerstone: An Interstate Adventure is an intimate, humorous and provocative look at three very different Americans and the way that theater changed their lives. In 1991, the Cornerstone Theater Company — an innovative ensemble that mounts productions of classic plays in small towns, using local residents as cast and crew — took on their most ambitious project to date, a national tour of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. Rather than drawing participants from a single community, this production was composed of people – waitresses, farmers, teachers, nurses, hairdressers – from the many small, rural communities across America where Cornerstone had lived and worked from 1986-1990.
