Greenway Arts Alliance Extend THE BEWILDERED HERD Until 5/20
Greenway Arts Alliance has announced that their world premiere production of THE BEWILDERED HERD by LA Weekly Award and Ovation Award nominee Cody Henderson, directed by Laurie Woolery, will now run through May 20.
The Bewildered Herd tells the serio-comic tale of Charlie ‘Bingo’ Bingham, a man who has made a living spinning products and political candidates. When his father dies, his dementia-suffering mother moves in. Bingo’s daughter has dropped out of college to be with a conspiracy theorist, and his wife has lost all faith in him. Using his polished arsenal of nostalgia, fear, and desire, Bingo tries to manufacture happiness and truth.
The cast is Corryn Cummins, John Getz, Derek Manson, Lisa Richards, and Trace Turville. The award-winning design team includes Susan Gratch (scenic), Dan Weingarten (lighting), Ann Closs-Farley (costumes), and John Zalewski (sound). The Bewildered Herd is produced by Dan Friedman (Greenway producing director).
Playwright Cody Henderson’s credits include Wonderlust and Pacific Daylight (Theatre of Note), Cold/Tender (Theatre @ Boston Court), The Lawn (Ojai Playwrights Conference, Writer-in-Residence; Redwood Curtain, Eureka, CA), and Carrots for Hare (Ghost Road Company/Powerhouse Theatre). His plays have been developed by Center Theatre Group, New York Stage and Film, Ensemble Studio Theatre-LA, ASK Theatre Projects, The Blank Theatre, Cypress College, and California State Summer School for the Arts. Henderson also regularly writes scripts for the LA Philharmonic’s Symphonies For Youth at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
