THE WIFE OF USHER'S WELL Announces Official Cast For 2018 She NYC Arts Summer Theater Festival

Sophie Netanel's adaptation of The Wife of Usher's Well has officially announced their cast for the 2018 She NYC Arts Summer Theater Festival.

A mother lives in Usher's well, and she sends her three bonny sons away to school. A young woman, Maeve, loves the middle son. She pledges to bring him back in any way she can, even if it means destroying the life she knows. All the while on the edges of Usher's Well, a mysterious traveller and an old woman play out an ancient rivalry and, unbeknownst to her, Maeve is the center of it all.

This summer seven actors will be bringing the traditional ballad to She NYC. Under Alex Keegan's direction, the talented cast will charm the stage with the haunting faery story of The Wife of Usher's Well. This cast includes Victoria Frings* as The Wife of Usher's Well, Chris Stahl* as Eldest, Matt Lytle* as Middle (Ceallan)/The Preist, Ed Ventura* as Youngest, Sophie Netanel* as Maeve, Rebecca Hirota* as The Old Woman, and Matthew Christian* as The Sailer/The Messenger/The Traveller.
