Evermore Theatre Company Presents the Toronto Premiere Of DRY POWDER
Evermore Theatre Company is pleased to announce that award winning theatre director, Angela Besharah will direct the Toronto premiere of Sarah Burgess's razor sharp, satire Dry Powder.
Evermore Theatre Company producer, Greg White, explains an element of good fortune in the decision, "Angela literally had a copy of Dry Powder that had just arrived by mail when I first reached out to discuss it with her. That kind of karma is not something you ignore!" White added, "Angela's collaborative approach, her passion for Sarah's work, and her fantastic sense of humour all contribute to making her the natural fit for this production."
Also joining the creative team is Emmy winning casting director, Stephanie Gorin. "Stephanie has cast some of the biggest shows, films, and television series to come through Toronto", said White, "we are thrilled she has joined the team. I think this is a continued testament to Sarah's incredible work. We are all in love with this play and these characters."
Dry Powder will run at The Toronto Centre for the Arts, April 4th-20th, 2019.
The same week his private equity firm forced massive layoffs at a national grocery chain, Rick Hannel threw himself an extravagant engagement party, setting off a publicity nightmare. Fortunately, Seth, one of Rick's partners, has a dream of a deal to invest in an American-made luggage company for a song that will rescue his boss from the PR disaster. But Jenny, Rick's other partner, has an entirely different plan: to maximize returns, no matter the consequences. The game is on in this satirical, razor-sharp play about the price of success and the real cost of getting the deal done. Dry Powder premiered at The Public Theater in March 2016, directed by Thomas Kail, starring Claire Danes, John Krasinski, Hank Azaria and Sanjit De Silva.
