A Season of World Premieres
Spooky Action Travels to New York and Paris, Back and Forth in Time
Featuring Michael Kevin Darnall, Tia Shearer, Randolph Rand, Seamus Miller, Elliott Bales, Dane Edidi, Bette Cassatt, Sha Golanski, Ryan Jones, Matthew Marcus, and Stephen Krzyzanowski.
A highly visual and cinematic play, Last of the Whyos follows Eddie Farrell, king of the Whyos gang in 1880s New York, as he slips through time to confront his future self one hundred years in the future and unleash energies long held in check.
Returning to Washington to direct is Rebecca Holderness, whose brilliant stagings of The Wedding Dress by Nelson Rodrigues, andKafka on the Shoreby Haruki Murakami previously produced a string of sold-out performances for Spooky Action.
The production design team includes Guest Artists Vicki Davis (set design) and Matthew Adelson (lighting design), who will come to Washington from New York and Massachussetts respectively. Erik Teague (costume design)and David Crandall (sound design) are Washington area artists who also helped create last season’s striking production of The Wedding Dress by Nelson Rodrigues. Once again, Spooky Action’s flexible preformance space will be redesigned, tailored to the special requirements of Barbara Wiechmann’s exceptional script.
