Ethan McSweeny to Chautauqua Theater Company's New Play Workshop Reading of THE GUADALUPE, Begin. Tonight


Chautauqua Theater Company (CTC), under the leadership of Vivienne Benesch Artistic Director and Sarah Clare Corporandy Managing Director, celebrates the 10th year of The New Play Workshop, with a staged reading of The Guadalupe by Carol Carpenter (Sweet, Sweet Spirit and Wild Dogs) from July 31-August 2, directed by CTC Resident Director Ethan McSweeny.

"In a season that has focused on work from a multiplicity of different voices, we are thrilled to be developing Carpenter's brave new play, The Guadalupe," says Artistic Director Vivienne Benesch. "Not only does it shed light on underrepresented stories of the American Mexican borderland, but it does so in the form of an exceptionally suspenseful thriller."

On the first night of the annual harvest, the Northrip-Valle family farm becomes the target of a cartel territory war. But why? As gunmen surround the farmhouse in the dark hours of night, the family unite to strategize their escape. But as family secrets unravel and politics collide, they learn that the more they uncover, the less they understand about the rapidly changing world just outside their door -- and inside themselves. The Guadalupe explores the changing economic and political realities of America's rural borderland, and the greed and desperation that fuels it.

The cast features Claudia Acosta (Veronica Northrip), David Anzuelo (Ricky Northrip), Dan Butler (Freddy Northrip), Socorro Santiago (Susy Valle-Northrip), Susana Batres (Lucia Raza), Toby Onwumere (Dakota Kinnibrugh), and returning CTC favorite Stuart Margolin (Sheriff Bob Rydell).

The design team features the work of CTC Design Fellows Izmir Ickbal (set), Hannah Prochaska (costumes), Kristen Neu (lights), and Elliot Davoren(sound). Bonnie Brady is stage manager.

Performance times are Thursday at 8pm; Friday at 4pm and Saturday at 2:15pm at the Bratton Theater Mainstage. Tickets to The New Play Workshop are $15. Order by phone at (716) 357-6250, M-F 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or order online at www.ciweb.org.
