Photo Flash: First Look at Akvavit Theatre's THEY DIED WHERE THEY LIED

Akvavit Theatre presents their initial production of the 2013 - 2014 season, Swedish playwright Sofia Fredén's They Died Where They Lied, co-directed by Akvavit company members Matthew Isler and Mark Litwicki, translated by Edward Buffalo Bromberg and playing at the Den Theatre, 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave., now through December 1. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

They Died Where They Lied is a razor-sharp black comedy that unfolds under the midnight sun of midsummer Sweden. Camping on the outskirts of town, burned-out couple Anna and Erik anesthetize themselves on boxed wine and replay their usual bitter arguments. Just as things begin to spin out of control, a pair of ragged berry-picking foreigners wander in from the woods.

The cast for They Died Where They Lied includes: Mallory Nees (Anna), Brian Hoolahan (Erik) and Scott W. Anderson (Polish Man). The role of "Thai Woman" will be announced at a later date.

The crew for They Died Where They Lied is Matthew Isler* (co-director), Mark Litwicki* (co-director), Bergen Anderson* (producer), Chad Eric Bergman* (scenographer), Christina Marcantonio (costumes), Kirstin Franklin* (casting director), Wm. Bullion* (communications director), Breahan Eve Pautsch* (development director) and Liv Anderson (graphic design). Additional crew will be named at a later date. *Indicates Akvavit Theatre company member.
