Thin Walls - a new play by Michael Allen Zell

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

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.

FRANKENSTEIN, adapted from Mary Shelly’s 1818 best-selling classic, is a Gothic thriller, passionate romance, and a cautionary tale all in one sensational package. The quest of a young scientist at the turn of the 19th century to discover the secret of generating life unleashes one of the most disturbing and powerful creatures in all of world literature. In this age of artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, and bio-terrorism, this electrifying and moving story raises profound questions about what it means to be human.
FRANKENSTEIN will run for a total of eleven performances, including one Pay-What-You-Can preview and one $15 sneak preview. FRANKENSTEIN will be performed in the Shaver Theatre.

*FRANKENSTEIN recommended for mature audiences
