After a powerful run at Planet Connections 2018 Theatre Festivity, spit&vigor revives THE BRUTES, written by Casey Wimpee (2x Samuel French Short Play Finalist; NYIT Outstanding Original Short Script) for a longer run at the New Ohio Theatre, 154 Christopher Street.

Casey Wimpee takes you backstage of an historic performance of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar featuring the renowned Booth theatrical family - brothers, Edwin, Junius Jr. and John Wilkes, Booth. This was the first and only time the three brothers shared a stage together. The backstage drama becomes the focus of this portrait of a tempestuous relationship fraught with political conflict ending in an American tragedy.

THE BRUTES is an intimate portrait of a family divided. The piece is staged In-the-round with a minimalist set pieces that transforms into a theatre, a dinner table, and a nation on the brink of sweeping change. Civil strife, family devolution, and a country sharply divided - 150 years ago or right now - the parable of this drama remains strong.

The cast features Adam Belvo, Sara Fellini, Colt W. Keeney, Morgan Zipf-Meister, Eamon Murphy, Becca Musser, Pete Oliver, Xandra Leigh Parker, Harlan Short, Nicholas Thomas, and Perri Yaniv.
