Just Theater to Present IN FROM THE COLD, 11/1-23

JUST THEATER (JT) presents the World Premiere of In From The Cold by Jonathan Spector, opening with a press night on Monday, November 3 (Previews Nov 1 & 2) running through November 23 in the Live Oak Theatre, 1301 Shattuck Ave (at Berryman) in North Berkeley, in which a Cold War spy's past maybe isn't past after all, the secret meaning of 80s movies is revealed, and its Ladies Night at Chilis. In From The Cold is a funny and provocative new play about what is means when you used to mean a lot, and now you don't mean much anymore.

Following up on it's hit production of A Maze, Just Theater brings this hilarious, troubling new work inspired by the little known true story of the Cold-War's biggest spy. In From The Cold exposes the personal consequences of political actions and asks deep questions about the trade-offs we make in the name of our ideals. In From The Cold gives life to the actions of a former spy, playing out when a prodigal son returns home to take up residence in the basement with both funny and tragic results.

"A few years ago I discovered that one of the biggest spies from the Cold War had lived in hiding across the street from my suburban high school, and that I'd actually met him a few times. I'm always interested in people who are caught up in moments of great historical change, and in the incongruity of the large social forces and mundane everyday life - like the fact that this guy who may have prevented WWIII still had to worry about moving his car on Tuesdays for street sweeping." remarks playwright and Just Theater Co-Artistic Director Jonathan Spector. In From The Cold is directed by Christine Young, featuring Seton Brown*, Julian Lopez-Morillas*, Harold Pierce, Sarah Moser*, David Sinaiko (*Actors Equity).
