SEE Theatre to Start With a BOOM! (Trish Clark returns to the stage September 1 at the DAC! :)

One of Lexington's newest, up-and-coming theatre companies, Project SEE Theatre is announcing their first full season of plays for the 2011-2012 season.  Here are the details so you can mark your calendars accordingly!

The fall will focus on new works, not yet seen in this region.
boom by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, September 1-4 & 8-11, will start the season at the Downtown Arts Center starring Trish Clark, Ellie Clark and Evan Bergman. boom is a three-person comedy exploring the influences of fate versus randomness in the course of one's life, and life as we know it on the planet. It was the most produced show in regional theatre last year.

Almost, Maine by John Cariani, October 27-30 & November 3-5, is best described as “a midwinter night’s dream.” Project SEE will join the team at Transylvania University for this production through actor training for the student cast as well as performing in the show.

12 Dates of Christmas by Ginna Hoben, location and December dates TBA, is a one-woman show in which a single female actor portrays the many characters that make up Mary’s yearlong holiday dating journey.

The spring will be a tribute to Lanford Wilson and will be at the Downtown Arts Center. Wilson is considered one of the founders of the off-off Broadway theatre movement and won the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1980.
He passed away this year March 24, 2011.

The Hot l Baltimore by Lanford Wilson, March 1-4 & 8-11, was one of his most successful plays and is set in the lobby of the Hotel Baltimore. It focuses on the residents of the decaying property who are faced with eviction when the structure is condemned. The play draws its title from the hotel's neon marquee with a burned-out letter "e" which was never replaced.

Burn This by Lanford Wilson, May 31-June 3 & June7-10, “From his earliest plays to his latest Lanford Wilson has been firmly committed to the free expression of the individual spirit, no matter how nonconformist or even prodigal that spirit may seem to be... In the sense that it deals with lonely and displaced characters, Burn This is in the Wilson tradition. Where it breaks dramatic ground for the author is in its passion ... Mr. Wilson exposes deep uncauterized emotional wounds-and offers no salve.”
