WritersBloc Presents World Premiere of 'No Entrance' 10/16
WritersBloc Productions will present the world premiere of NO ENTRANCE, written by Alec Gutherz. Peformances began Thursday, October 9, 2008 at 8PM at the Access Theater, 380 Broadway, 4th floor. The official opening will be on Thursday, October 16, 2008 at 8PM. Sue Lawless will direct.
NO ENTRANCE examines the consequences of the choices people make. Through a confluence of learned behavioral patterns, each character struggles with their own obligations, responsibilities and desires. This struggle manifests itself in the concept of duty; the duty of a mother, a wife, a soldier, a Catholic, a husband, a sister, a son. And only when this concept is challenged does the emotional core of each character become exposed.
The cast NO ENTRANCE features Rena Burger, Christopher Cole, Alison Edwards, Emily Loeb, Matthew Stapleton and Jacob Troy.
