THE OUTGOING TIDE's Author Bruce Graham to Attend Chenango River Theatre's Production, 10/4
Bruce Graham, author of The Outgoing Tide playing through Oct. 13 at Chenango River Theatre, will be coming in to see the production on Friday, Oct. 4. He will stay after the show to participate in the theatre's traditional second Friday "TalkBack". The TalkBack is an opportunity for the audience to ask questions of the director, cast and in this case, the author, about the play.
Bruce is a winner of the prestigious Rosenthal Prize for Drama for Coyote on a Fence, which also won two Drama Desk nominations (and whose staging in London's West End starred Ben Cross, of "Chariots of Fire" fame). He is the recipient of two Barrymore Awards (regional awards for the best of Philadelphia area theatre productions).
His one man show, The Philly Fan, plays semi-continuously throughout the Philadelphia area. Something Intangible won seven 2009 Barrymore Awards including Best New Play. The Northlight (Chicago) production of The Outgoing Tide, starring John Mahoney (the father on Frasier) won Chicago's Jefferson Award for Best New Play. Two new plays premiere in spring of 2013: Stella and Lou at Northlight and North of the Boulevard at Theatre Exile. Graham recently returned to acting, playing Lenny in his play Any Given Monday, which won the 2010 Barrymore Award for Best New Play, and most recently as Richard in Time Stands Still at Delaware Theatre Company and Act Two.
Graham is also a Hollywood player, having written screenplays (both credited and as a "script doctor") and for television. His big-screen credits include the Jason Alexander comedy "Dunston Checks In," "Anastasia" and "Steal This Movie," based on the life of 1960s radical leader Abbie Hoffman.
On the television side, Graham has penned several made-for-TV movies (he has a Father's Day flick for the Hallmark Channel in preproduction), and wrote for two series: the short-lived 1980s show "Leg Work," starring future Oscar-winner Frances McDormand ("Fargo"), and "Roseanne."
Running through Oct. 13, The Outgoing Tide is the final show of Chenango River Theatre's 2013 season and is co-produced by Sentry Alarms of Binghamton.
