TIME AND CHANCE, A New Play by Mark Medoff
July 9 & 16 at 3 PM, July 12 & 13 at 8 PM
TICKETS: Premium Adult $42; Premium Senior $39; Regular Adult $38; Regular Senior $35
A world premiere written and directed by Mark Medoff, Tony Award winner for Children of a Lesser God, TIME AND CHANCE is the story of four women—a recovering alcoholic, world famous painter; her partner, a former NY Times art critic, now gallery owner, unbeknownst to her partner, dying of a rare, hereditary disorder; an abandoned teenager with a startling gift for prevarication and drawing; and a music professor who yearns for the courage to find out if she can be a career musician, who has just discovered her late mother’s diary from the concentration camp, Theresienstadt. Each of the women plays a character from Theresienstadt, where the young professor’s mother and grandmother were incarcerated. From the fear, vitriol, cruelty, humor, and, ultimately, love and mercy, come the redemptive power of family. The play will feature a set designed by Robert Steinberg and lighting by Steve Wallace.
