Patrick Bynane & Nolan Chapa to Star in Amphibian Stage Productions' THE NORTH POOL, 1/19-20
Amphibian Stage Productions today announced casting for its first staged reading of the 2014 season, The North Pool by Rajiv Joseph. Patrick Bynane and Nolan Chapa will star in this drama, running Sunday, January 19 and Monday, January 20 at Amphibian's theater at 120 S. Main Street. Linsey Retcofsky will direct the reading.
Khadim has no idea why he's been called into the office of Dr. Danielson, the Vice Principal at Sheffield High. At first, Danielson is cagey, using a minor violation to keep the boy at school for detention. But as tension mounts, Danielson alternately plays good cop and bad, and winds up catching Khadim in a series of lies about crimes he may (or may not) have committed.
"A masterful playwright, Joseph has captured intrigue with brevity. The North Pool will keep you talking and thinking for a long time, as this play and its timely themes continue to reemerge all around you." - Theatermania
The North Pool will be performed on Sunday, January 19 at 2 pm and on Monday, January 20 at 7 pm at Amphibian Stage Productions.
