Brelby Theatre Company to Premiere WHISPER SWEETLY This Month
The Brelby Theatre Company located in Historic Downtown Glendale, will be bringing the world premiere of Devon Mahon's latest work Whisper Sweetly to the Brelby stage this fall. Featuring direction by John Perovich, Brelby's Director of New Play Development.
This story began as a challenge from the Production Intensive at Brelby to create an origin story explaining how a particular element or phenomena came to be. An Arizona native, Mahon decided to compose a piece combining various origin stories related to Daylight Savings Time, woven together to create a spooky tale of time, sacrifice, and coffee.
"This show is a spookier side to theatre, and it's a show no one else has seen, " Mahon explains. "We'll all experience this new piece together! My greatest hope is that people will have the show on their minds the next day as something that was a fun experience or something that generated thought or sparked an idea."
Whisper Sweetly features performances by Chelsea Jauregui as Abbott, Clayton Caufman as Conn, Debra Lyman as Mayor/Townswoman, George Gonzalez as Briar/Townsman, and Jessica Holt as Anita.
