"In Haidle's play, Jeff and George, mourning the death of their mother, struggle to make ends meet at the family ladder store, which George also utilizes as a front for the black market sale of human hearts. This heartfelt comedy, about the limits of feeling and the consequences of feeling little or too damn much, had its World Premiere at The Long Wharf Theater in 2005," explain press notes.
In addition to Stadelmann, the cast of Rag and Bone includes Michael Chernus (American Sligo, Essential Self Defense), Kevin Jackson (Topdog/Underdog, Fences), Deidre O'Connell (Fugue, Stone Cold Dead Serious), Henry Stram (Inherit the Wind, The Crucible), Audrey Lynn Weston (Rearviewmirror, Work) and David Wohl (Fiddler on the Roof, Dinner at Eight).
The creative team is comprised of Dane Laffrey (sets), Oana Botez-Ban (costumes), Ben Stanton (lights), and Eric Shim (sound). Christina Lowe is Production Stage Manager and Heather Davidson is Assistant Stage Manager.
