'Book Of Days', by Lanford Wilson, at the Stella Adler Theatre
As its inaugural production New World Theatre presents Book Of Days, written by Lanford Wilson and directed by Robert Zick, Jr, at the Stella Adler Theatre from the 9 - 27 Aug 2005.
Lanford Wilson's morality play Book Of Days, is a tale about the destructive nature of fear, deception, ambition, and power in a town where the truth can hurt one's perceived sense of security more than the alternative delusion. The plays deals with faith, ambition, family, politics, fear, murders and cheese.
Director Robert A Zick, Jr., whose previous work has been in San Francisco, and who is making his New York directorial debut with this production, says of Book Of Days "It is a challenge for everyone involved - concepts of the chorus and a play within a play within a play tear at the fabric of realism and offers us the opportunity to play imaginatively with the playï¿½s relationship with the audience.
It is truly a story of today's small town America presenting the attitudes and mind set that have created the polarized social landscape in which we find ourselves. The appropriateness for producing this play now is beyond question."
Book Of Days features Michael Boland, David Cooper, Meghan Dickerson, Douglas Gowland, D.H. Johnson, Karron Karr, Tarek Khan, Kelly Miller, Pamela Paine, Michael Tranzilli, Tina Trimble and Tashya Valdevit.
The play has set design by Gerard J. Savoy, costumes by Virginia Sassman and lighting by Keri Thibodeau. It is produced by Robert Zick, Jr. Meghan Dickerson and Karron Karr.
