Photo Flash: First Look at Cinnabar Theater's WE WON'T PAY! WE WON'T PAY!

Cinnabar Theater presents social comedy "We Won’t Pay! We Won’t Pay!" by Dario Fo, translated by Ron Jenkins.  BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.

Desperate efforts "to make ends meet" becomes a comical tangle of escapades in "We Won't Pay! We Won't Pay!" - a farce featuring a comic duo who experience escapades reminiscent of the Lucy and Ethel characters in "I Love Lucy."

After participating in a riot protesting the high prices at a local grocery store, two women find themselves tangled in a web of lies involving groceries and a fake pregnancy. Oh boy, these two will have some real explaining to do.  A period of struggle and tough economic times serves as the backdrop for this comedy of "hunger" which examines how humor prevails over desperation.

The cast includes Liz Jahren of Cotati as Antonia, Nathan Cummings of Petaluma as Giovanni, Sarah McKereghan of Fairfax as Margherita, Samson Hood of Santa Rosa as Luigi and Gary Grossman of Cotati playing multiple roles of State Trooper, Police Sergeant, Gravedigger and Grandfather.

The production, directed by Laura Jorgensen, runs Sept. 21 to Oct. 7, 2012, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays Sept. 30 and Oct. 7 at Cinnabar Theater, located at 3333 Petaluma Blvd. North, Petaluma, Calif.

Tickets are $15 to $25; $25 General; $22 Seniors 65 & Over; $15 Age 22 & Under. Call 707-763-8920, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, or purchase at the door. Reservations highly recommended. Visit www.cinnabartheater.org for more information.
