Thin Walls - a new play by Michael Allen Zell

DATE
Fri, Sep 12, 2014
through Sun, Sep 28, 2014
DETAILS

September 12 through 28, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 4pm

A dark comedy and original work by local author Michael Allen Zell.
Tango-playing Charlotte and her Hollywood-bound daughter Julie run an isolated pet cemetery with one simple rule - speaking aloud is forbidden - a rule shaken up by the arrival of new handyman Bram. Two slippery characters, sideshow performers M. Queneau and Miss Elastic, soon arrive, putting a formerly static place in motion. Thin Walls looks back to step forward.
Thin Walls is a work inspired by the golden age of silent film, and promises to be unlike anything else on stage this season. Dialogue is conveyed through intertitles projected above the action, with both ambient sound effects and piano music underscoring the play. However, the silence and intertitles are disrupted by lines spoken aloud, largely by the series of newcomers that arrive at the pet cemetery.
Directed by Angela Jo Strohm, starring Big Easy Award winners Jake Bartush, Richard Mayer, and Mary Pauley, with Hope Leigh and Samantha Mullen.
