La Strada Presents the NJ Premiere of THE ATTIC
La Strada Theatre Ensemble is one of New Jersey's premiere developmental theatre companies that brings together theatre artists from the tri-state area with playwrights from throughout the United States.
THE ATTIC and GO FISH make a double bill of mysteries. In founding member and British resident Robert Scott's NJ Premiere of THE ATTIC, Demi began sorting out the attic, but she's become obsessed with a letter she's found. Is it a suicide note? A confession? What is her connection with the woman from the past? In the world premiere of NJ resident CharLee Mares' GO FISH a card game unlocks the mystery of a murder.
Robert Scott says of his play, "I've wanted for years to write a play set in two timezones and have either side of the stage set accordingly. Eventually I got round to it with The Attic. Very quickly, I decided to make it a story where the present characters were learning of the events the past characters were playing out - but I knew I needed a connection to fit it together and decided that the twist could be for the characters in the present. I tried to get a feel of something sinister was going on."
THE ATTIC directed by founding member Evan Black and GO FISH directed by its author CharLee Mares plays February 8th and 9th at 8pm/February 10 at 2pm at the Jersey Shore Arts Center, 66 South Main Street, Herbst Theatre on the 3rd Floor in Ocean Grove.
The evening stars Ali Dupris, Corynn Fazio, Becca Lettice, Tara London, Sarah Osman, Alexandria Pascucci Ankit Sharma & Leon Weyhknecht IV.
Tickets are $25/$20 for students and senior citizens with an ID. The performance will be held at Jersey Shore Arts Center, 66 South Main Street, 1st Floor Theater in Ocean Grove.
