Mad Cow Theatre to Present Alan Ayckbourn's TABLE MANNERS, 1/24-2/23
Mad Cow Theatre is pleased to present Alan Ayckbourn's wildly funny and Tony Award-winning comedy Table Manners on January 24 - February 23, 2014 in The Harriett Theatre.
Table Manners follows the intertwining lives of a group of siblings and their significant others during a weekend in the country. This sidesplitting farce explodes with lust, hysterics, and exasperation as they all share a weekend in search of love, sex, and the meaning of marriage. A comic feast where chairs and food are scarce, but the laughs are served aplenty.
The cast of Table Manners is filled with some of your favorite Mad Cow artists and more. Norman (Simon Needham in his Mad Cow debut) is an assistant librarian married to Ruth (Jamie Middleton - The Heidi Chronicles, The Cherry Orchard). Ruth is siblings with Annie (Ame Livingston - August: Osage County, Cradle Will Rock) and Reg (Thom Mesrobian - Death of a Salesman). Reg is married to Sarah (Heather Charles - Legacy of Light, My Fair Lady) and Tom (Tommy Keesling - Enchanted April, Pitmen Painters) is a locAl Veterinarian smitten with Annie.
This cast is led by Dan Bright making his Mad Cow directorial debut. Lighting design is by Erin Miner (The Road to Mecca, Enchanted April), costume design by Emily Smith (Venus in Fur, Billy Bishop Goes to War), sound design by Will Carlson (Venus in Fur), set design by William Elliott (Death of a Salesman, Other Desert Cities), props and scenic painting by Lisa Buck (Enchanted April, The Light in the Piazza.)
Table Manners will run at The Harriet Theatre at Mad Cow Theatre, 54 West Church Street (Second Floor) in Downtown Orlando.
