World Premiere of Into the Breeches! Begins Performances
George Brant's comedy plays through February 25 at Trinity Repertory Company.
Tyler Dobrowsky directs George Brant's play, described as follows: "Providence, 1942: Oberon Play House's director and leading men are off at war. Determined to press on, the director's wife sets out to produce an all-female version of Shakespeare's Henry V, assembling an increasingly unexpected team united in desire, if not actual theater experience. Together they deliver a delightful celebration of collaboration and persistence when the show must go on! A surprisingly modern and moving comedy about the singular way art and community reveal our boldest selves even in the darkest times."
Featured in the cast are Stephen Berenson (Stuart), Timothy Crowe (Ellsworth), Janice Duclos (Winifred), Phyllis Kay (Celeste Fielding), Meghan Leathers (June), Anne Scurria (Maggie Dalton), Rachael Warren (Grace), and Lynette Freeman (Ida).
The creative team includes Cameron Anderson (set design), Porsche McGovern (lighting design), Olivera Gajic (costume design), M. Florian Staab (sound design). Sara Sheets is the stage manager.
Performances continue through February 25.
