Laura Wade's Breathing Corpses to Open October 13 at AGL






ACTORS GUILD of LEXINGTON
LAUNCHES 28TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON WITH
LAURA WADE'S
BREATHING CORPSES


Actors Guild of Lexington begins an epic season of contemporary theatre with British playwright Laura Wade's BREATHING CORPSES Oct 13th - 23rd at their new performance space in South Elkhorn Village.



ABOUT THE PLAY:

The Story: A teenage chambermaid, Amy, has discovered a body in a hotel room, again. Over at the Green Door Storage Company Jim is dealing with a strange smell coming from B16. And on the hottest day of the year Kate is losing her mind after spending all day being questioned by the police. Each of them has seen something they wish they hadn't, there's no going back for any of them now.


"When a man has lost all happiness, he's not alive. Call him a breathing corpse." Sophocles.


Playwright Laura Wade crafts the story of BREATHING CORPSES in a clever, time bending circular nature. The seemingly unconnected characters, and multiple storylines, are in fact all part of a greater narrative...


"Laura Wade's play is like a crossword puzzle where all the clues have to do with death. Wade uses the play's shifting structure to make you feel disorientated, almost scared…The tension, the emotions and the sense of absurdity and fear are brilliantly handled…A terrifying tour de force." —The Sunday Times (London)


Part comedy, part drama, and part time bending mystery BREATHING CORPSES serves as a perfect launch to Actors Guilds 28th anniversary season and its mission on compelling modern theatre. Directed by Eric Seale who begins his second season as full time Artistic Director at AGL
