The show is a one-act, "first draft" version of the work that eventually became Williams' Camino Real. "We are honored to have been granted the rights to produce this work," artistic director David Herskovits said in a statement. "Ten Blocks is poetic, mysterious, and neglected. And its dreamlike quality suits Target Margin's style perfectly."
The cast will feature Purva Bedi, Satya Bhabha, Curt Hostetter, McKenna Kerrigan, Dara Seitzman, and Raphael Nash Thompson. The creative team will include Lenore Doxsee (sets & lighting), Asta Bennie Hostetter (costumes), Jim "Sneaky" Breitmeier (sound), and David Rosenmeyer (musical director).
The piece is being presented as part of the company's larger mission to present The Really Big Once, a new play based on the collaborations between Williams and director Elia Kazan -- who staged Ten Blocks in 1948. The new play is planned to debut during the company's 2009-2010 season.For more information, visit targetmargin.org.
