Weston Playhouse Theatre Company Announces The Cast For Paula Vogel's INDECENT

Article Pixel

Weston Playhouse Theatre Company presents Paula Vogel's Tony-award-winning play about a group of actors who risked everything for theatre, INDECENT (September 26 - October 20 | Walker Farm), Fri & Sat 7:30pm; Sat 2:00pm; Sun 3:00pm. Select Thursday performances.

This deeply moving work charts the true story of a group of artists who risked their lives to put on a Broadway production and were arrested on opening night. INDECENT follows the writer, his play, and the people who fought to perform it against all odds. Written by the author of HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE and THE LONG CHRISTMAS RIDE HOME, INDECENT is Weston's fifth American Masters production.

Says director Jordan Fein: "I think, at its core, this play is about the people who are making it. It is about all those actors on that stage making it every night. The actors don't get to walk on and assume a character-they're coming on as themselves, as an ensemble, to tell this story to this audience. That's the core of this play."

The cast features Brian Bock as Avaram/Ingenue, Whitney Maris Brown as Halina/Middle, Molly Carden as Chana/Ingenue, Forrest Malloy as Lemml, Chris McFarland as Mendel/Middle, Marcus Neville as Otto/Elder, and Gordana Rashovich as Vera/Elder.
