Uptown Players Presents Premiere of ART AND SCIENCE, 5/30 - 6/15
In Art and Science, Adam visits his former elderly voice teacher, Robert, to discover he's had a stroke and is partially paralyzed. In spite of Adam's urging, Robert refuses to go to the hospital and seek medical attention because he's a Christian Scientist. Reluctantly, Adam feels he has no choice but to stay and try to help Robert, who is feeling more and more effects from the stroke. As the play unfolds, they both learn about and address their long-held resentments towards each other and struggle to find acceptance. At times quite funny and ultimately moving, Art and Science is based on a real-life event that happened between the playwright and his elderly voice teacher.
The cast features David Benn and Christopher Cassarino, and is under the direction of New York Director Jason St Little.
This limited run production takes place from May 30 through June 15 in Frank's Place, upstairs at the Kalita Humphreys Theater, with performances on Friday and Saturday at 7:45 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased online at www.uptownplayers.org or by phone at (214) 219-2718.
