Photo Flash: First Look at The REP's Pittsburgh Premiere of HEADS

The REP, Point Park University's professional theatre company, continues its compelling 2013-2014 season with the Pittsburgh premiere of EM Lewis' heart-wrenching prize-winning drama, Heads. Scroll down for photos from the production!

Directed by John Shepard, Heads previews on Thursday, Jan. 30, and runs Jan. 31-Feb. 16, in the Studio Theatre at the Pittsburgh Playhouse, 222 Craft Ave. Performances are 8 p.m., Thursday - Saturday, and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Written by EM Lewis and called "provocative and wonderfully threatening" by Edward Albee, Heads tell the deeply human story of four hostages in a war zone and how they each respond to their ordeal by making difficult choices to survive.

The REP's production of Heads stars Tony Bingham as Michael Apres, Patrick Cannon as Jack Velazquez, James FitzGerald as Harold Wolfe, and Diana Ifft as Caroline Conway. Scenic design is by Britton Mauk, costume design by Don DiFonso, lighting design by Todd Wren, and sound design by StEve Shapiro. Alicia DiGiorgi is the stage manager.

Tickets range from $24 to $27; preview tickets are $15. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Pittsburgh Playhouse box office at 412.392.8000, or online at www.pittsburghplayhouse.com. Patrons can take advantage of the "Pay what you will" performance at 2 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 1, subject to availability. New in 2013-2014, The REP's Talkback series, where the audience is invited to stay after the performance and discuss the show, has been moved to the matinee performance on the second Saturday of every show. For Heads, the Talkback session will be held after the 2 p.m. performance on Saturday, Feb. 8.
