Photo Flash: First Look at Radial Theater's 99 LAYOFFS
Radial Theater Project presents 99 Layoffs, a new play by Seattle-based playwright Vincent Delaney. The world premiere of 99 Layoffs is a co-production with ACT Theatre's Central Heating Lab, presenTed August 2-25, 2012 in ACT's Eulalie Scanduzzi Performance Space (the "Lalie"). BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.
Commissioned and produced by Radial Theater Project, 99 Layoffs follows the misadventures of Orson and Louella, two wannabe artists and serial job seekers, as they navigate the wicked waters of our recession-battered labor market. We follow our protagonists on a winding journey through interviews, daily work, layoffs and other terminations. Along the way, we meet the steady stream of manic bosses, petulant customers and evil children who challenge their peace of mind and economic stability.
A dramatic comedy (or comedic drama) for two actors and multiple characters, 99 Layoffs brims with recognition of a restructured world where the best job, and the only job that's available, are pretty much the same job.
Performances are on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, with Saturday matinees on August 11, 18 and 25, and a special Monday performance on August 20. All performances will be at ACT Theatre, 700 Union Street, Seattle, WA 98101.
Tickets are $15- $25 in advance, and are also available to holders of ACT Theatre's ACTPass. Advance ticket sales are available online at www.acttheatre.org, by phone at (206) 292-7676, and in person at ACT Theatre's box office.
