Performances Added to Run of David Greenspan's Solo Strange Interlude
The Eugene O'Neill play is presented by Transport Group.
Three performances have been added to Transport Group's run of Eugene O'Neill's Strange Interlude at the Irondale Theatre Center. David Greenspan stars in the nine-act, six-hour drama, which is presented as a solo show.
Performances have been added on three Thursdays, November 2, 9, and 16. The opening is set for October 21. Jack Cummings III directs the production, which he developed with Greenspan, dramaturg Kristina Corcoran Williams, and scenic designer Dane Laffrey.
The play is described as follows: "Nina Leeds's life crumbles when her true love is killed in World War I. Flitting from one man to the next until she settles for a life she never wanted, Nina is stalked by the fantasy of the happiness she never got to share with her late fiancé. This 1928 saga follows the lives of eight characters over the course of a half-century. Transport Group's production incorporates the fragmented identities of each of these characters, and their colliding inner and outer lives over an entire lifetime, into a single performer, and turns one of O'Neill's most ambitious works into an astounding theatrical event."
The production will have scenic and costume design by Dane Laffrey and lighting by Jen Schriever. The run is scheduled to conclude on November 18.
