Cast Announced for THE MEMORY EXAM Playing at 59E59 Theaters This September

The Memory Exam begins previews September 3, 2022, in Theater C and opens September 10 for a run through September 25, 2022.

59E59 Theaters and Oberon Theatre Ensemble announced casting for The Memory Exam by Steven Fechter (Rehearsing the Wannsee Conference) and directed by Terrence O'Brien (Pimm's Mission). The Memory Exam begins previews September 3, 2022, in Theater C and opens September 10 for a run through September 25, 2022.

The cast of The Memory Exam will include Alfred Gingold (Equus) as Hank, Gus Kaikkonen (House of Mirth) as Tom, Bekka Lindström (The Sky Inside) as Jen and Vernice Miller (Eve's Song) as Dale.

The Memory Exam will feature scenic design by Tamara L. Honesty, costume design by Amy Sutton, lighting design by Greg MacPherson, and sound design by Charles Hatcher. Jenna Lazar serves as Company Manager, with Charles Casano as Stage Manager. Helene Galek is the Casting Director.

Set in a future world when the simple act of forgetting can be fatal, vigilante laws turn neighbors, friends, and colleagues into spies and informants. Three people in their autumn years covertly hire an expert who can coach them for the perilous Memory Exam. Failure is almost all but certain - but the coach has devised a method that depends on how well they can recall the specifics of their most enduring memory no matter how factual or fantastic.

The Memory Exam is a play about courage, survival, and the fear of losing your future because you're forgetting the past.

The performance schedule for The Memory Exam is as follows: Wednesday - Saturday at 7:30pm, Sunday at 2:30pm. Exceptions: there will be no performance on Wednesday September 7.

Tickets to The Memory Exam begin at $20 and are on sale now at www.59e59.org/shows/show-detail/the-memory-exam/.
