Kicking off tonight, August 5, is HOLDEN, produced by George & Co, directed by Anisa George and written by Anisa George in collaboration with the ensemble. The play runs through August 8, 2015. Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action!A tragicomic, modern-day No Exit, plumbing a darker dimension of The Catcher in the Rye. Three obsessive super-fans, with definitively shady pasts, have taken up residence in J.D. Salinger's private writing bunker. Unbeknownst to the reclusive author, their mission to get Salinger to publish once more spirals into a fevered bonfire of longing and delusion. George & Co is a Philadelphia-based theater company led by writer/director Anisa George. It creates madcap and messy, ensemble-created, original works, and has been nominated for "Best Ensemble" at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and named "Pick of the Philadelphia International Festival of Arts" by The Philadelphia Inquirer. Performances are Wednesdays - Saturdays at 7pm. Tickets are $18 and $15 for students and seniors, and can be purchased online at www.NewOhioTheatre.org or by calling 1-888-596-1027.
