Photo Flash: First Look at Theresa Rebeck's OUR HOUSE
Are news and entertainment interchangeable? In Our House, a cocksure TV big shot faced with dwindling ratings installs America's favorite news anchor as host of a popular reality show. Meanwhile, in Middle America, a houseful of roommates bickers over high-stakes real-world conflicts: Merv doesn't clean the bathroom. Someone ate Alice's yogurt. And the rent is long past due. When reality collides with reality TV, we find ourselves front and center in a drama that holds the nation riveted. Our House is a deliciously scathing new comedy that takes on a media-obsessed culture intent on turning even the most sobering crisis into sexy entertainment.
The cast of Our House will feature (in alphabetical order) Mark Belnick, Ajarae Coleman, Patrick Hancock, Rachel Germaine, Kyle Ingleman, Jennifer Kenyon, and JB Waterman. The set design is by Dan Mailley, lighting design is by Matt Richter, costume design is by Sharell Martin, and sound and video design is by Corwin Evans. The stage manager is Stephaine Boltjes, and Our House is produced for Wasatch Theatrical Ventures by Racquel Lehrman and Theatre Planners.
