A Red Orchid Theatre's Incubator Series to Present Harold Pinter's A NIGHT OUT, 8/31-9/22
A Red Orchid Theatre's Incubator (an off & late night series dedicated to getting to know new and/or up-and-coming theatre artists in Chicago) presents A Night Out by Harold Pinter, directed by Dado. The production features 11 actors who are new to the AROT stage and runs Sunday and Monday nights August 31 - September 22 at 7:30pm at A Red Orchid Theatre, 1531 N. Wells.
Against the wishes of his mother, Albert Stokes ventures out to a work party, but does not attain the escape for which he was hoping. A Night Out is a one act teleplay from 1960 that takes place over the course of one night.
The Stage Manager is Katey Kerman and the Assistant Directors are Joey Lubelfeld and Katherine Swan.
"The Incubator at A Red Orchid was conceived quite selfishly, as a way for me to get to know new directors," says Artistic Director Kirsten Fitzgerald, "but very quickly morphed into a way to get to know new artists across the whole creative team."
Since 1993 A Red Orchid Theatre has been an artistic mainstay of the Chicago theatre community; known and praised for its powerful ensemble, creative design and its gripping, intimate productions. It was named Best Theatre of 2010 by Chicago Magazine. The resident Ensemble maintains the conviction that live theatre is the greatest sustenance for the human spirit, and that passionately committed artists will draw passionately committed audiences.
A Red Orchid Theatre is: Lance Baker, Kamal Angelo Bolden, Dado, Mike Durst, Jennifer Engstrom, Kirsten Fitzgerald, Joseph Fosco, Steve Haggard, Mierka Girten, Larry Grimm, Karen Kawa, Karen Kessler, Danny McCarthy, Shade Murray, Brett Neveu, Michael Shannon, Guy Van Swearingen, Doug Vickers and Natalie West.
