About this show

In a terrifying near future, Heresy, takes on the American Dream. Says playwright A.R. Gurney, "Heresy is a new look at an old story. But it's really about what happens when Americans are told by their president to go shopping in the face of unspeakable terror." In typical Gurney fashion, he puts his light touch on our darkest despair. Reg E. Cathey (The Wire)?, Tommy Crawford?, Steve Mellor, Kathy Najimy (Dirty Blonde, The Kathy and Mo Show, Hocus Pocus), Annette O'Toole (Smallville), Danny Rivera and Ariel Woodiwiss. Beginning Friday, October 19th, Tony-Award winner Karen Ziemba (Contact, Steel Pier, Curtains), joins the cast succeeding Kathy Najimy. What the critics are saying: "Clever new satire…sharp comedy…The smart and fun production features an excellent cast directed with precision by Jim Simpson." -The Huffington Post "Heresy hits the funny bone…the cast and Jim Simpson's brisk direction make it fun." -The Daily News "The arguments made are compelling -- as well as highly critical of the status quo. And Gurney includes just enough humor to make this information easily digestible while not diluting its bite." -Theatermania "Solid direction, engaging performances, clever dialogue, well-articulated ideas and an abundance of jokes." -Stage and Cinema "A consistently amusing and well-played take on the state of the union." -Blog Critics
