Waiting for O’Neill
Strange as it may seem, there has never been a professional production of one of the great Masterpieces of American Theatre in Seattle- Eugene O’Neill’s The Iceman Cometh– until now. Endangered Species Project in conjunction with ACT Theatre’s Central Heating Lab, is producing a “concert” reading of The Iceman Cometh on Monday, September 15. Since the play is thematically linked to “Waiting for Godot” it will be performed on the same set, which is now playing at ACT Theatre.
Due to the length of the show, it starts at 6 pm, with a long “dinner” intermission and box-lunches for sale. Written in 1936, but only premiering in 1946, the plays deals with universal themes of expectation and disillusionment.
One reason to see this play is that is collects some of Seattle’s greatest talent, all together in one room: R. Hamilton Wright, Richard Ziman, Kurt Beattie, Kathryn Van Meter, Amy Love, G. Valmonth Thomas and a host of others.
Monday’s concert reading of the Iceman Cometh is a fund-raising event for The Endangered Species Project, a group of actors who produce staged readings of neglected plays on Monday nights.Oppblåsbar Rockwall
