Photo Flash: First Look at Griffin Theatre Company's WINTERSET at The Den Theatre

Griffin Theatre Company has launched its 2016-17 Season, an exploration of the American Dream, with a rare revival of Maxwell Anderson's 1930s drama WINTERSET, directed by Ensemble Member Jonathan Berry (Pocatello, Balm in Gilead), playing now through December 23, 2016 at The Den Theatre's Upstairs Main Stage, 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood. The press opening is this Sunday, November 27, and BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

WINTERSET features Maurice Demus as Mio and Kiayla Jackson as Miriamne with Chris Acevedo, Larry Baldacci, Johnny Moran, Josh Odor, Matt Rockwood, Skylar Schrempp, Londen Shannon, Bradford Stevens and Norm Woodel

A rare revival, in keeping with the Griffin's work to explore lost plays like London Wall and Men Should Weep. Inspired by the infamous murder case of the 1920s when the Italian anarchists and immigrants, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, were arrested, convicted and electrocuted despite the insubstantial evidence against them. Anderson's 1935 poetic verse play follows a young man's quest to prove his father's innocence years after he was executed for a murder he may not have committed. Winner of the first New York Drama Critic's Circle Award for Best Play.

The production team for WINTERSET includes: Joe Schermoly (scenic design), Mieka van der Ploeg (costume design), Alex Ridgers (lighting design), Bradford Chapin (sound design), Jeremiah Barr (properties design), Catherine Allen (production manager), Jason Crutchfield (stage manager) and Rebecca Ross (asst. stage manager).
