Cerveris, Myers, Etc. Set for This Week's 'oak tree'

Michael Cerveris, Marin Ireland, Mike Myers and Peter Dinklage are among the performers set to play "The Father" in the hit Off-Broadway play an oak tree.

Tim Crouch's play, directed by Crouch, Karl James and a smith, is being presented in the US for an extended run.  Presented by the Perry Street Theatre, Rosalie Beer, A.J. Epstein, Richard Jordan Productions in association with Barrow Street Theatre, the show began performances on October 27 and opened Saturday, November 4 at the Barrow Street Theatre (27 Barrow Street).

"an oak tree is the story of two men brought together by loss: a father whose daughter has been killed in a car accident -- and the driver of that car -- a provincial stage hypnotist," state press materials.  "For the father, nothing now is what it was. Since the accident the hypnotists' act is a disaster. For him, everything now is exactly what it is. an oak tree is about the dramatic intertwining of human lives as the man and the hypnotist are reunited for the first time since the accident when the hypnotist inadvertently calls him on stage as a volunteer."

"an oak tree is a remarkable new play for two actors. The Father, however, is played by a different actor - male or female - at each performance. The second actor walks on stage having neither seen nor read a word of the play they're in….until they're in it. This is breath-taking projection of performance, given from one actor to another, from a hypnotist to a subject, from an audience to a person."

Scheduled to appear are: Michael Ceveris (12/1), Marin Ireland (12/2), Peter Dinklage (12/2), Alysia Reiner (12/3), Tim Blake Nelson12/3), Chuck Cooper (12/4), Austin Pendleton (12/8), Alix Elias (12/9), Ben Walker (12/9), David Pasquesi (12/10), Mike Myers (12/10), David Rasche (12/11), Mark Consuelos (12/12).
