Broadway's Joel Grey to Direct On Borrowed Time at Two River Theater
The Paul Osborn play is a rarely seen American classic.
On Borrowed Time is a magical fantasy about the love between a little boy and his grandfather, Gramps. When Death pays them a visit, Gramps is able to outwit Death by trapping him up in a tree.
The cast will include Oakes Fegley, Robert Hogan, Tom Nelis, Alex Garfin, Brian Gildea, Brian Michael Hoffman, Betsy Hogg, Patrick Husted, Diane Kagan, Angela Reed, Steven Skybell, Lorenzo Villanueva, and John Thomas Waite.
"When I became Two River's artistic director," said John Dias, "one of the first calls I made was to Joel Grey… When he suggested On Borrowed Time — a play that has meant a lot to him in his own history — I was struck by how relevant, beautiful, and moving it is."
The creative team features scenic designer Michael Carnahan, Tony Award-winning costume designer Ann Hould-Ward, Tony Award-winning lighting designer Jennifer Tipton, sound designers and composers Nathan A. Roberts and Charles Coes, wig and makeup designer Tom Watson, and fight director J. Steven White.
