Photo Flash: First look at A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE at ART/WNY
American Repertory Theater of WNY concludes the 2016-17 theatrical season with a presentation of playwright Martin McDonagh's A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE from May 4th to May 27th, Thursday through Saturday at 8pm at 330 Amherst St., Buffalo. This seedy dark-comedy of a seedy one-handed man's odyssey to find his missing hand in a seedy hotel room with two equally seedy visitors (then things really get weird...in a seedy way). Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action below!
A dingy motel room. Small-town America. Carmichael travels with a suitcase full of hands, but he wants his own back. Toby has a hand that he'd like to sell Carmichael for the right price. Marilyn wishes that Toby had never stolen that hand from the museum. Mervyn thinks Marilyn is pretty hot. He works reception, though he wouldn't call himself a receptionist. Life and death are up for grabs, and fate is governed by imbeciles and madmen in this darkly comic new play from the acclaimed playwright Martin McDonagh.
Directed by Matthew LaChiusa A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE features Thomas LaChiusa as the one-armed 'Carmichael', Candice Kogut and Shabar Rouse as the bumbling 'Marilyn' and 'Toby" with Nick Lama as the sociopathic receptionist 'Mervyn'.
Irish playwright Martin McDonagh, known for works from his two trilogies set in and around County Galway (including THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE, THE LONESOME WEST, THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN and THE LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE), set this dark comedy in 'Anywhere USA' marking this his first play based in America.
