Photo Flash: First Look at White Horse Theater Company's YOU ARE PERFECT

The White Horse Theater Company is currently presenting the world premiere of YOU ARE PERFECT, a new play about the life of 'Manson Family Member' Susan Atkins, set in Atkins' prison cell on the eve before a key moment in the Manson murder trial. Written & directed by White Horse Theater Company's Producing Artistic Director Cyndy A. Marion, the production will run in NYC thru February 20 at The WorkShop Theater Company-Main Stage (312 West 36th St.). BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

YOU ARE PERFECT is a theatrical re-imagining of the life of Susan Atkins, moving through time and space, questioning allegations of murder and deceit. Susan Atkins is having doubts about testifying against Charles Manson. Knowing full well that Susan's change of heart may send her to death row, a well-intentioned social worker (The Woman) visits Susan in jail. Attempting to understand Susan's fears and motivations, The Woman urges Susan not to retract her grand jury testimony and to take the stand against Manson. In an ensuing battle of wills, questions of truth and innocence abound shattering expectations and challenging our capacity for forgiveness.

The cast of the production will feature Carlotta Brentan, Nancy Wolfe* of the 1976 TVspecial Helter Skelter and Brad Burgess of The Living Theatre. *Appearing courtesy of Actors' Equity Association/AEA Approved Showcase.
