Cast Announced for EVELYN IN PURGATORY at Mariemont Players Inc.

MPI_logoMariemont Players Inc. is excited to announce the cast of our January production, EVELYN IN PURGATORY:

  • Evelyn – Heather Abbott
  • Roberta – Chessie Vigran
  • Lila – Cathy Ross
  • Candace – Aimée Ward
  • Fred – Chuck Ingram
  • Toby – Evan Blanton
  • Atwood – Robert Weidle

A sort of Breakfast Club for teachers, EVELYN IN PURGATORY shows what happens when teachers land in their own version of detention. A claim of improper behavior by a failing student lands Evelyn Reid in the New York Public School’s Reassignment Center, one of a series of empty offices in the Department of Education Building. There she encounters a group of teachers who must sit and wait for their cases to be reviewed. Some are guilty, some are not, but all have long since lost any hope of returning to a classroom. Over the course of the school year, these colleagues form an unlikely alliance, reminding each other of forgotten passions, emerging to face life outside in unexpected new directions. They also learn French, workshop a screenplay…and learn some troubling secrets about each other.

EVELYN IN PURGATORY is directed by Jennifer Keith and co-produced by Patrick Kramer and Betsy Bossart.

Performance Dates: January 10-26

IS HE DEAD? Runs Sept. 13-29

MPI_Is He Dead logoIS HE DEAD?
Mariemont Players Inc.
Sept. 13-29
Walton Creek Theater [Walton]

Directed by Michele Mascari

Cast: Nick Young as Francois Millet/Daisy Tillou, Ryan Bowron as Chicago, Jimmy Jackson as O’Shaugnessy, Darren Lee as Dutchy, Katie Jensen as Marie, Cat Cook as Cecile/Lefaux, Roscoe Mlinek as Papa Leroux, Petrina Barresi as Mme. Bathilde, Tara Pettit as Mme. Caron, Ray Lebowski as Andre Bastien & Danny Davies as Charlie/Basil/Claude/King of France/Policeman

IS HE DEAD? presents a fictional version of the great French painter Jean-François Millet as an impoverished artist in Barbizon, France. He stages his own death with the help of his colleagues to increase the value of his paintings, then dresses as a woman – ostensibly his sister, the Widow Daisy Tillou – to keep his secret safe. Is He Dead? combines elements of burlesque, farce, and social satire; it features devices like cross-dressing, mistaken identities and romantic deceptions to tell a story that raises questions about fame, greed and the value of art.
