Lillian Hellman's THE LITTLE FOXES to Kick Off 2018 at Epic Theatre Company
Epic Theatre Company is welcoming the new year with one of the greatest plays ever written, Lillian Hellman's THE LITTLE FOXES.
Regina Hubbard Giddens and her conniving family will do whatever it takes to claim their family's fortune in this devilish and dynamic look at wealth, privilege, and power.
In the spirit of last year's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, this production will be a fresh look at this contemporary classic. Resident Epic Director Kate Lester strips down one of the most riveting dramas of all time to expose the Southern underbelly of greed and corruption that drives a family to destroy one another and themselves.
"We really wanted to continue the conversation we started last January with Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," says Epic Artistic Director Kevin Broccoli. "I love the idea of taking these iconic plays and turning them upside down to see what makes them resonate decades after they were written. In a season that looks at speaking truth to power, this was my first choice when the time came to reexamine another classic piece of theater history. It's about the power struggle that exists between men and women, the poor and the rich, and those who want to move forward versus those who want to cling to the past. After all these years, it's still as relevant as ever."
Lester directs a cast that includes Steph Rodger (3C), Michael Petrarca (Rasheeda Speaking), Krystal Hall (Barbecue), Katrina Rossi (3C), Ross Gavlin (Mr. Marmalade), Dan Victor (Jesus Christ! And Other Christmas Tales), Stephanie Traversa (Pride & Prejudice), Ezekiel Seun Olukoya, Robert Schmiegel Remigio, and Francis Gilleese.
