Photo Flash: THE KILLING OF SISTER GEORGE Celebrates Opening Night


TACT/The Actors Company Theatre, the critically-acclaimed and Drama Desk nominated Off-Broadway company "dedicated to presenting neglected or rarely produced plays of literary merit," presents the first New York revival in 30 years of The Killing of Sister George, the controversial 1964 play by Frank Marcus. The first production of the company's 22nd Season will be directed by TACT Company Member Drew Barr, who directed the company's Fall 2012 production of Brian Friel's Lovers. The show opened at Theatre Row's Beckett Theatre (410 West 42nd Street - between 9th & 10th Avenues) on October 7, and performances will continue through November 1, 2014.

In The Killing of Sister George, gin-swilling, cigar-chomping June Buckridge plays the beloved Sister George on the popular BBC Radio drama,Applehurst. When it looks like BBC executives might kill off Sister George to raise ratings, June's precarious personal world heads into a tailspin.

The cast includes TACT Company Members Cynthia Harris (Lost in Yonkers, The Cocktail Party, TACT Co-Artistic Director Emeritus), Margot White (The Farnsworth Invention, Romersholm), and Guest Artists Dana Smith-Croll (You Can't Take it With You - TACT) and Caitlin O'Connell (Mothers and Sons, 33 Variations), making her TACT debut.

The creative team is comprised of Narelle Sissons (sets and costumes), Mary Louise Geiger (lights), and Daniel Kluger (sound and original music). Jeff Meyers is Production Stage Manager and Kelly Burns is Assistant Stage Manager.
