New Company Devoted to 'Mature' Actors Premieres New Play


Comfort In Silence: A Coming-of-Age Story for Forty Somethings

Artistic Director, Timothy Patrick Walsh, is proud to announce the beginning of an innovative Production Company, StreetLamp Productions, dedicated to bring new, classical, and contemporary Works Productions using artists of different backgrounds, cultures ... and ages. The company's maIn Focus will be on 40 + year-olds and beyond. It is Timothy's dream to create a space full of friendly, creative energy where he can bring together the many talented people he has worked with over the years.

Their first production was penned by Mr. Walsh.

In Comfort in Silence, three friends since high school, have spent their lives wearing masks to run and hide from their inner fears and insecurities (fighting adulthood every step of the way). Now, in their forties, they are faced with the decision of finally growing up and embracing a path of love, forgiveness and true happiness.

Patty, Stevie, and Mary have been best friends forever. They have shared everything with each other but, no matter how well you think you know a person... you never really knows what goes on behind closed doors. Each have battled, suppressed, or just ignored issues that have consciously or subconsciously held them back from living a complete, loving, fulfilled lives ... instead of the superficial, alcohol-induced existences they have come to accept. It all began when Patty went to a shrink.

Part of the American Theatre of Actors' 41 season: Sargent Theatre, 314 West 54th Street, between 8th and 9th avenues in NYC.
