Our House, written by Theresa Rebeck, the creator of TV's hit "Smash," is a deliciously scathing new comedy that takes on the media-obsessed culture intent on turning even the most sobering crisis into sexy entertainment. When a real life sociopath demands his five minutes of fame, he comes face to face with a pathology far more sophisticated and dangerous than even he could have imagined. The collision takes us on a ride we will never forget. Ms. Rebeck, who is known to our audiences from last season’s Mauritius, has said, “As a writer, I have always considered it my job to describe the world as I know it; to struggle toward whatever portion of the truth is available to me.”
Cast includes Jen Newby as Jennifer; Steve Lobis as Wes; Robert A. Norman as Stu; Greg Davis as Merv; Emily West as Alice; Coz Baldwin as Vince; Leann Wintermute as Grisby. Directed by Aaron Wexler. Produced by Ken Junkins.
Performances take place on July 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26, 27, and 28.
