What is there in the darkness of a box that may reveal one's deepest hopes and nightmares? A game of cat-and-mouse that is a compelling page-turner for the stage! Sigourney, a self-effacing medical student aspiring for affirmation in all the wrong places, finds herself working for a man of great reputation and personal power who challenges, excites, and stimulates in her visions of enduring happiness. BOXES originally premiered in Los Angeles at Theatre West, earning great critical acclaim. Audiences will be kept on their toes as they follow Sigourney down the rabbit hole of this twisting thriller.
BOXES stars Good Theater favorites Hannah Daly as Sigourney Cushing, Thomas Ian Campbell as Marvin, and Sally Wood as Dr. Kelly Banford. They are joined by Good Theater newcomers Ashanti Williams as Dr. Robert Eden, and Dalton Kimball as Clifford. Good Theater co-founder Stephen Underwood directs, and Meaghan Lydon stage manages.
