J.C. Lee's What You Are Announces Cast
The world premiere is an Old Globe commission.
The Old Globe has announced the cast and creative team for the world premiere of What You Are, a Globe-commissioned new play by J.C. Lee. Directed by Patricia McGregor, What You Are will run May 30-June 30 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, with opening night on June 6.
What You Are is described as an "exploration of the personal struggles that accompany sweeping social change. Feeling adrift in a changing America he no longer recognizes, Don scrapes together a living and struggles to support his family through hard work and good intentions. But everything around him, from his younger coworkers, to the technology in his office job, to even his own opinionated daughter, seems alien to the certainties and stabilities he once knew. When a simple misunderstanding at work escalates into an all-out confrontation, Don hatches a plan to set right all the things he feels have gone wrong."
The cast includes Adrian Anchondo as Hector, Jasmin Savoy Brown as Katie, Omozé Idehenre as Sigourney, Mike Sears as Randy, and Jonathan Walker as Don.
The creative team includes Rachel Myers (set design), Elisa Benzoni (costume design), Sherrice Mojgani (lighting design), and Luqman Brown (sound design).
