Coram Boy to Close on May 27
Adapted by Helen Edmundson from Jamila Gavin's award-winning novel of the same title, this play with music is a transfer from the London stage. Set in 18th-century England, it focuses on two orphans: Toby, who has been saved from an African slave ship, and Aaron, the abandoned son of the heir of a great estate. Directed by Melly Still, the production team includes Still and Ti Green (costumes and sets), Paula Constable (lighting), Christopher Shutt (sound), Adrian Sutton (music), and Constantine Kitsopoulous (music direction).
Coram Boy received Tony Award nominations for director Still and featured actresses Xanthe Elbrick and Jan Maxwell, as well as for scenic, costume, and lighting design.
