A Life in the Theatre

by David Mamet, directed by Bob Goepfert

May 18-20, 2018 (Fri-Sun)Two actors: one young and rising into the first full flush of his success; the other older, anxious and beginning to wane. In a series of short, spare, and increasingly raw exchanges, we see the estrangement of youth from age and the wider, inevitable, endlessly cyclical rhythm of the world. David Mamet is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of such seminal plays of our time as Glengarry Glen Ross, American Buffalo, Oleanna, and Speed-the-Plow.

Director: Krysta Dennis works as a theatre-maker and director in the US and internationally, and teaches at Siena College. Krysta holds a dual PhD from the University of Kent in the UK and the Sorbonne in Paris, and trained at LíEcole Jacques Lecoq. She is the founder of Through the Grapevine Performed Wine Tastings, and is a founding member of the London-based Allied Productions. One of her most recent performing credits was Richard Schechnerís Imagining O at the Kerala Theatre Festival in India. Upcoming directorial projects include Design for Living at the Cook Park Amphitheatre and a devised piece to commemorate the centenary of womenís suffrage at Siena College.
