"The Caretaker is a play that transcends the time it was written in with themes of loneliness, delusion, and the necessity of human connection that echo so strongly today," said Wilbury Artistic Director Josh Short. "To be able to open our beautiful new performance space with this work, with these incredibly talented actors, designers, and Steve at the helm is an absolute privilege. We couldn't more excited to share our new space with audiences, and I can think of no better way to introduce them to it then with this team we've assembled and this incredibly funny and heartbreaking work by one of our favorite playwrights."
The Caretaker is presented September 14-October 7, 2017 at The Wilbury Theatre Group's new performance space, 40 Sonoma Court, Providence RI. Tickets are $15-$35. Call 401.400.7100 or www.thewilburygroup.org.
