A Red Orchid Presents THE OPPONENT, 10/18-12/2

A Red Orchid Theatre presents the world premiere of Ensemble Member Brett Neveu's The Opponent, directed by Karen Kessler. The production will run October 18 – December 2, 2012 at A Red Orchid Theatre, 1531 N. Wells. Press Opening is Monday, October 22, 2012 at 7:00PM.

Accomplished playwright and Ensemble Member Brett Neveu takes a look at the hard world of boxing from the perspective of small time gym owner Tre and the young up-and-comer Donell. They come from different worlds, they barely understand each other, but in the ring anything is possible. Questions of loyalty and life's dreams are put to the test in this explosive world premiere that promises to pull some punches and fearlessly land all the others. The Opponent was originally developed through Center Theatre Group's Writers' Workshop.

The Opponent features A Red Orchid's Founding Artistic Director and Ensemble Member Guy VanSwearingen.
