Drew Foster to Direct the Premiere of David Harms' What We Wanted
What We Wanted, a new play written by David Harms, will have its premiere at the Clurman Theatre at Theatre Row. Directed by Drew Foster, the production is set for a limited engagement from January 3 to January 15, with opening night set for January 5.
Set in a small college town in Ohio, What We Wanted follows a three-person marriage struggling to stay intact as forces inside and out tear it apart. Julian is a professor, whose sexual relationship with his mentee causes strife as she files a suit for misconduct. Agnes receives a promotion to become editor of the magazine she works for but must move away from her family in order to accept. Sally helps her daughter's boyfriend, Dale, study for the GED, but crosses boundaries with the frail young man and Reggie exacts revenge on her mother for abandoning her to live with Agnes and Julian.
The cast for What We Wanted features Steven Hauck (Irena’s Vow) as Julian, Elizabeth Rich (Rx) as Agnes, Amy Bodnar (Oklahoma) as Sally, Brandon Espinoza (Tuck Everlasting) as Dale, and Kerry Warren (The River) as Reggie.
What We Wanted features set design by Deb O, lighting design by Paul Miller, costumes by Gregory Gale, and original music and sound by Erik T. Lawson.
