The Delaware Theatre Company presents The Outgoing Tide (www.OutgoingTidePlay.com) a new American play by Bruce Graham (nominee of two Drama Desk Awards and The Rosenthal Prize for Coyote on a Fence at Urban Stages, Something Intangible, Any Given Monday) and directed by Bud Martin (Any Given Monday, Respect). The Outgoing Tide begins performances on November 7th and plays a limited engagement through December 16th at 59E59 Theaters, Theater A. Opening was last night, November 20th and you can check out photos from the big event below!

The Outgoing Tide explores the ebb and flow of a family dynamic. In a summer cottage on Chesapeake Bay, Gunner has hatched a provocative plan to secure his family's future but meets with resistance from his wife and grown son. As Gunnar tries to maintain control of his destiny, secrets emerge which have been hiding below the surface for a lifetime.

The cast features Michael Learned (Emmy Award winner, “The Waltons,” “Nurse,” Gore Vidal’s The Best Man; The Sisters Rosensweig,), Peter Strauss (Emmy Award Winner, “The Jericho Mile,” “Rich Man, Poor Man,” “Masada”), and Ian Lithgow (“Third Rock From the Sun,” “Boy Gets Girl”).

The Outgoing Tide has set design by Dirk Durossette, costume design by Wade Laboissonnier, lighting design by James Leitner, and sound design by David O’Connor.

“While The Outgoing Tide is about forgiveness and making up with our family for the mistakes we've made in life, my first job as a writer is to entertain,” said playwright Bruce Graham." When audiences get caught up in a story, I have done my job."

Tickets for The Outgoing Tide are $60, and the show plays at 59E59 Theaters, Theater A (59 E. 59th Street between Park and Madison) from November 7 – December 16, 2012. The performance schedule is as follows: Tuesday – Thursday at 7pm, Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 2pm and 8pm, and Sunday at 3pm and 7pm.
