STAGE TUBE: Director, Rob Melrose, Talks About THE GHOST SONATA
Cutting Ball Theater presents THE GHOST SONATA, directed by Rob Melrose. Previews begin October 12-13, with an opening of October 18. Check out the video below with Director, Rob Melrose talking about the show.
THE GHOST SONATA tells the story of a strange encounter between a student and an old man and begins the morning after a terrible fire. A “ghost supper” is shared in a round room, secrets are divulged, plots are foiled, illusions are shattered, and the true haunting nature of things is revealed. The most well known of Strindberg’s Chamber Plays, THE GHOST SONATA serves as the centerpiece of Strindberg Cycle: The Chamber Plays in Rep.
Based on the belief that a Pelican sheds its own blood to feed its young, THE PELICAN presents a family where the exact opposite is true. The widow Elise plots with her lover to steal her children’s inheritance while they starve in their own home. When the children discover the truth, the revelation sparks a small revolution.
All regular perfomances Thursday at 7:30pm, Friday-Saturday at 8pm, Saturday at 2pm, and Sunday at 5pm. All Chamber Play Marathon performances 12pm, 4:30pm, 8:30pm.
