Photo Flash: GEOMETRY OF FIRE Opening Night
Rattlestick Playwrights Theater (David Van Asselt, Artistic Director and Sandra Coudert, Managing Director) is presenting the World Premiere production of Geometry of Fire, by Stephen Belber. Performances began Saturday, November 15th, 2008. Opening night was Monday, November 24th at 7pm. The show will run through Sunday, December 14, 2008.
In Geometry of Fire, Belber's newest work, we find an investment banker-turned-Marine-sniper recently returned from Iraq and a Saudi-American who just wants to get laid. In any other world, these two guys would be best friends. But when their lives collide in this one, each is forced to survive on the fly. Based on a true story. Geometry of Fire had a developmental production at New York Stage & Film in July 2007.
The creative team is comprised of Robin Vest (sets), Anne Kennedy (costumes), Peter West (lights), Eric Shim (sound), Mary Robinette Kowal (props), Rick Sordelet (fight choreography) and Brian Smallwood (technical director). Katrina Renee Herrmann is Production Stage Manager, Alyssa Ritch is Assistant Stage Manager, and Alice Reagan will serve as Assistant Director.
