A Red Orchid Theatre Sets Casting for Harold Pinter's The Room
The drama will be directed by Dado.
Chicago's A Red Orchid Theatre has announced casting for its upcoming production of Harold Pinter's The Room. The drama will be directed by Orchid ensemble member Dado and is set to run September 29-November 13.
The cast of The Room includes JoJo Brown (Riley), Dano Duran (Mr. Sands), Kirsten Fitzgerald (Rose), Mierka Girten (Mrs. Sands), Anish Jethmalani (Mr. Kidd), and HB Ward (Bert). The creative team is made up of Grant Sabin (scenic design), Kotryna Hilko (costume design), Claire Chzran (lighting design), Heath Hays (sound design), Alec Long (properties), and Barbara Siefert (violence).
The Room is Pinter's very first play. It is described as follows: "Rose prefers to stay in, safe from the hostile world outside, but her seemingly cozy sanctuary is continually being invaded. With visits from the landlord, a couple in search of their own space, a stranger and the return of her husband, it becomes increasingly unclear whether the menace comes from within or without."
