Photo Flash: First Look at A GOD IN NEED OF HELP, Opening Tonight at Tarragon
Tarragon Theatre presents the world premiere of A God in Need of Help by playwright-in-residence Sean Dixon, directed by the theatre's artistic director, Richard Rose. This vividly painted sojourn into 17th century Europe examines the role of faith at the dawn of the Age of Reason and opens tonight, April 23, running to May 25 (with previews from April 16) in Tarragon's Mainspace. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
It is 1606 and Europe is at war over God. The four strongest men in Venice and their Captain stand before the Magistrate of Venice and the Cardinal-Archbishop of Milan. The men had been charged with transporting a holy painting -- The Brotherhood of the Rosary -- at the behest of Rudolf II of Austria from Venice across the Alps to Prague. In the small Alpine village of Pusterwald, they were set upon by Protestant zealots; their escape attributed to a miracle. An inquiry has been called to determine whether something miraculous did indeed occur. The imperious Magistrate swears all to secrecy while the art-expert Archbishop leads the investigation.
Director Richard Rose has assembled an outstanding cast for this mystery set in a time fraught with religious and political upheaval.
A God in Need of Help by Sean Dixon is directed by Richard Rose and features Alden Adair, Dmitry Chepovetsky, John Cleland, Greg Ellwand, Daniel Kash, Tony Nappo and Jonathan Seinen with Daniel Giverin and Ben Irvine. The creative team includes set and costume design by Camellia Koo, lighting design by Kimberly Purtell, and sound design by John Gzowski.
Tickets range from $21-$53 (inclusive of HST) and are available by calling Patron Services at 416-531-1827 or by visiting www.tarragontheatre.com.
