Paralyzed by the fear of getting old, Paul is a legendary, lonely, alcoholic painter engaging in reckless behavior as his younger actor-turned-agent, David, struggles to return Paul to his former glory. These soulmates face their demons together, creating a strong and volatile bond leading each to perform desperate acts of love.
Celebrated actor/director/playwright Austin Pendleton* (Bway: Fiddler on the Roof, Diary of Anne Frank; Grand Hotel; Film: “A Beautiful Mind,” “Finding Nemo,” “Finding Dory”) stars in House Red Theatre Company’s inaugural production. A world premiere love story with tragic consequences, the cast of six also includes Peter Collier, Eric Joshua Davis*, Joseph Hamel, Alec Merced, and Liarra Michelle.
“With groups of people like the LGBTQ community being marginalized by the Alt-Right, the time is ripe for artists to share their perspectives about these issues,” states playwright Stuart Fail. “I hope that my play can offer a look at real people with real problems who would otherwise never get the time of day from a cold and closed society.”
