Brandon J. Dirden's production marks the midway point in Two River's staging of the 10-play Century Cycle.
Obie Award winner Brandon J. Dirden's production of August Wilson's King Hedley II has released new photos of the run at Two River Theater, currently paying through December 16.
The production is described as follows: "The year is 1985. King Hedley II has returned from prison looking to rebuild his life, save some money, plant a backyard garden, and start a family. Don't miss this powerful and evocative look at how hope springs from even the hardest of soil. This production is the halfway mark of Two River presenting the 10 plays of August Wilson's American Century Cycle."
Featured in the cast are Brittany Bellizeare (Tonya), Harvy Blanks (Elmore), Brian D. Coats (Stool Pigeon), Elain Graham (Ruby), Charlie Hudson III (Mister), and Blake Morris (King Hedley II).
The creative team includes scenic designer Michael Carnahan, costume designer Karen Perry, lighting designer Kathy A. Perkins, sound designer Kay Richardson, and hair and wig designer Erin Hicks. The fight direction is by UnkleDave's Fight-House, and the stage manager is Laura Wilson.
