Photo Flash: First Look at Trinity Rep's MELANCHOLY PLAY

Trinity Rep closes out Season 51: The Necessity of Human Connection with the world premiere of Tony-nominated playwright Sarah Ruhl and composer Todd Almond's Melancholy Play: a chamber musical, directed by Obie Award-winner Liesl Tommy. Melancholy Play: a chamber musical runs now through June 28, 2015 in Trinity Rep's Dowling Theater. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Tilly is a bank teller, and she's depressed. She's so beautifully, alluringly melancholic that everyone she meets falls in love with her, including her therapist, her hairdresser and her tailor. But what happens when she stops being so sad? In two lyrical, poetic parts, Melancholy Play: a chamber musical offers a whimsical take on the human quest for love.

This chamber musical features Trinity Rep resident acting company members Mia Ellis, Rebecca Gibel, Charlie Thurston, Rachael Warren and Joe Wilson, Jr.

The production team includes Broken Chord (sound design), Jacob A. Climer (costume design), Clint Ramos (set design), Andrew Smithson (musical direction), Peter West (lighting design) and Christopher Windom (choreography).
