World Premiere Drama CAGED Begins Tonight at Theatre Banshee

Mean Machine Productions and Georganne Aldrich Heller in association with Theatre Banshee have announced the world premiere production of a new drama, CAGED by Dermot Davis. Featuring Elizabeth Lande and Johnny O'Callaghan and directed by Tim Byron Owen, CAGED will play one preview tonight, October 22 at 8pm, with an opening set for Friday, October 23 at 8pm. The engagement will run through November 22 only at Theatre Banshee in Burbank.

In CAGED, two strangers find themselves trapped together in the elevator of a deserted high rise building late at night. Their worlds are turned upside down in a desperate struggle against the raw, primal animal that lives just below the surface in all of us.

Elizabeth Lande has been seen in many stage productions in Los Angeles and around the country. Credits include Remembrance, Kin, and American Wee-Pie (Theatre 40), As You Like It (Yale Repertory Theatre), A Knife in the Heart (New Dramatists), Look Back in Anger (Williamstown Theatre Festival), and King Henry IV, Part 2 (New Jersey Shakespeare Festival). She is a graduate of The Yale School of Drama.

Johnny O'Callaghan most recently appeared in Remembrance at Theatre 40. His Ovation Award-nominated solo show Who's Your Daddy? in LA launched a move to Off-Broadway, Edinburgh, and Toronto. Other Off-Broadway successes include Howie The Rookie, Ladies and Gents in the toilets of Central Park at The Irish Arts Center, and The Hostage at The Irish Repertory Theatre. His critically acclaimed solo performance in Conor McPherson's Rum and Vodka followed in New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto.

Dermot Davis is an award-winning playwright and author. He was formerly a child actor in Dublin, Ireland and he is the co-founder of Laughing Gravy Theatre (which performed the best of Irish and European theatre as well as some original plays by Davis). He has had plays performed in Dublin, Boston, Los Angeles, and at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, NC. He is a recipient of the O.Z. Whitehead Award for Playwriting and his novels so far have won total of seven literary awards to date.

Tim Byron Owen has produced, directed, or appeared in over 60 productions with theatre companies in Los Angeles, New York, Boston, London, Dublin, Edinburgh, and Cardiff. He co-founded The Sarah Fulton Group in Sherman Oaks which has produced numerous theatre projects as well as several short films. Some of Owen's directing credits include A Night In November, Fighting Words, The Walworth Farce, Love Me Deadly, Falling Upward, Jimmy & Sam, Spoken Words, and Remembrance, among many other award-winning productions.
