The Source begins performances tonight at The Den Theatre.

Gabe McKinley's play follows two journalist on the hunt for the biggest story of their careers who are summoned to travel across the world to meet with the Source: an unidentified leaker of hacked documents and information on the U.S. government. As these strangers probe one another for the truth and information, they find themselves in a thrilling psychological drama that leads them to examine their motives, their country and themselves all while waiting for the Source.

Kristina Valada-Viars stars as Laura and Cody Proctor Vernon. Jason Gerace directs.

"The question of ‘privacy versus security' is central to our time," says Gerace. "McKinley's play tackles this question with urgency and frames it in a way that resonates in the current moment, while building a thrilling theatrical experience for the audience. I am beyond excited to be at the helm of the world premiere of this important new play."

The production team for The Source includes Jack McGaw (scenic design), Claire Margaret Chrzan (lighting design), Christopher Kriz (sound design), Mark Comiskey (projection design), Rachel Sypniewski (costume design), Pauline Oleksy (props design), Catherine Allen (production manager), Brian Sprague (technical director), Nancy Staiger (stage manager), and Matthew Bonaccorso (assistant stage manager).
