The Flea Announces Casting for Sean Graney's These Seven Sicknesses
The five-hour piece is a combination of all seven of Sophocles' extant plays -- Oedipus, In Trachis, Philoktetes, In Colonus, Ajax, Elektra, and Antigone -- that examines the human condition, where the intermingling of chance and fate yields disquieting results.
The 38-person company will include Tiffany Abercrombie, Matt Barbot, Yoni Ben-Yehuda, Satomi Blair, Dave Brown, Allison Buck, Charlotte Bydwell, Holly Chou, Jenelle Chu, Ugo Chukwu, Alexander Cook, Tommy Crawford, Eloise Eonnet, Bobby Foley, Katherine Folk-Sullivan, Glenna Grant, Cleo Gray, Alex Grubbs, Grant Harrison, Victoria Haynes, Cameran Hebb, Alex Herrald, Miles Jacoby, Betsy Lippitt, Sean McIntyre, Kate Michaud, Seth Moore, Erik Olson, Victor Joel Ortiz, Jeff Ronan, Marie Claire Roussel, Olivia Stoker, Stephen Stout, Liz Tancredi, Will Turner, Tony Vo, Nate Washburn, and Akyiaa Wilson.
The design team will be comprised of Julia Noulin-Merat (scenic design), Carl Wiemann (lighting design), Loren Shaw (costume design), Patrick Metzger (sound design), and David Dabbon (music direction).
In addition, The Flea will partner with Macao Trading Co., to provide dinner for the show each night, which will be included in the cost of the ticket. The acting company will serve audience members.
