Arden Theatre Company presents the world premiere of Something Intangible, by Bruce Graham, directed by Terrence J. Nolen.
Set in Hollywood in 1941, the play explores issues of family and creative genius, and how the two can tug at one another. Two very different brothers, Tony and Dale, run a movie studio famous for its cartoon dog, Petey Pup. Tony is an extravagant and gifted visionary who longs to move beyond Petey and create a feature-length animated film set to classical music. His loyal brother Dale is a plain-speaking numbers man who manages everything: unrealistic budgets, unpredictable Tony and unrelenting deadlines while trying not to lose himself or his family in the wake of Tony's feverish genius.
