Outside Boston, ten people-some strangers, some not-struggle with the circumstances that have brought them to the Wayside Motor Inn. With old grudges and new feuds threatening the travelers' peace, this funny and moving work kicks off A. R. Gurney's Signature Residency by examining the tenuous space between loneliness and connection, and the fragile framework of the American Dream.
The design team includes Andrew Lieberman (Scenic Design), Kaye Voyce (Costume Design) Tyler Micoleau (Lighting Design) and Stowe Nelson (Sound Design). Donald Fried is the Production Stage Manager. Casting by Telsey + Company, William Cantler, CSA.
Supplemental programming has been set for THE WAYSIDE MOTOR INN. There will be post-show talkbacks on August 20, September 2, 9, & 16. There will also be a pre-show Backstage Pass discussion with a member of the creative team on September 17. All events are free.
