Joanne Camp Stars in the Pearl Theatre's Hecuba, Jan. 5-Feb. 12

Obie Award-winning actress Joanne Camp will headline the Pearl Theatre Company's staging of Euripides' tragedy Hecuba from January 5th through February 12th, 2006.

The production, directed by the Pearl's artistic director Shepard Sobel, will feature a new translation of the anti-war play by Janet Lempke and Kenneth J. Reckford.  Hecuba is set during the aftermath of the Trojan War, as the regal title character and her defiant daughter become slaves to the Greek victors.

Hecuba's cast will also feature Rachel Botchan, Dominic Cuskern, Carol Schultz, Vinie Burrows, Mel England, Rocelyn Halili, Kelli Holsopple, Susan Hunt, Carolyn Ratteray, John Livingstone Rolle, and Bashir Solebo.

Camp is the recipient of an Obie Award for her work with The Pearl, and also received a Callaway Award for her performance in the company's The Imaginary Invalid.  A Tony Award-nominee for The Heidi Chronicles, she has also been seen on Broadway in Dinner at Eight, The Last Night of Ballyhoo and The Sisters Rosensweig, while off-Broadway credits include Lips Together, Teeth Apart, Coastal Disturbances and Geniuses, for which she received Clarence Derwent and Theatre World Awards.

Hecuba will also feature sets by Susan Zeeman Rogers, costumes by Devon Painter, lighting by Stephen Petrilli and sound design and original music by Jane Shaw.

The Pearl Theatre is currently presenting William Wycherley's The Gentleman Dancing-Master through December 18th.  For more information, visit
