Opening May 10, this production is an intense show… a verbal chess match and the outcome can mean life or death according to producer Sandy Klein.
Stage Right Productions and 2nd Street Theater present The Sunset Limited written by Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men, The Road) and directed by Dori Donoho.
On a subway platform in New York City, an ex-con from the South (Preacher) saves the life of an intellectual atheist (Professor) who wasn’t looking for salvation. Now, the reformed murderer-turned-savior is determined to offer salvation of another kind, bringing the failed suicide victim back to his Harlem apartment. Preacher begins in control, but it quickly becomes clear that the nonbeliever is much more secure in his convictions than the believer. In a battle of wits, free will, life, death, God and the Devil, it’s one room, two men and a play that will leave you breathless!
“It’s an intense show… a verbal chess match and the outcome can mean life or death,” says producer Sandy Klein.
“Directing Sunset Limited has been a dream of mine for years it’s an powerful headlong jump onto the tracks of ultimate possibility,” says Donoho.
The show stars two powerful local actors, Rick Jenkins (Over the River and Through The Woods, Richard III, Twelfth Night) and Richard Mueller (Sordid Lives, Oleanna, Richard III, Working). Director Dori Donoho founded the Brat Pack Theater Troupe in 1980 and directed (Crimes of The Heart, Curious Savage, Women’s Forum, Insomnia) and many others in Idaho. Donoho is best known for her award winning Homegrown Music Radio Show and support of local musicians. This show contains adult language.
