FIREBONE THEATRE COMPANY is pleased to announce the US premiere production of REFUGE OF LIES, directed by Steve Day. REFUGE OF LIES will play a three-week limited engagement at Theatre Row: Lion Theatre (410 West 42nd Street). Performances begin Friday, September 12 and continue until Sunday, September 28. Opening Night is Wednesday, September 17 (8 p.m.).

Rudi Vanderwaal, a gentle, "good," elderly gentleman living in Canada is hunted down by a Jewish reporter who insists Rudi is living a lie. Rudi's haunting past as a Nazi collaborator now demands justice. Will he have the courage to face the crimes of his youth, or flee, once again, behind a promise of grace? This Hitchcock-like thriller is based on a true story.

The production stars Richard Mawe (Award-winning Death of a Salesman at Boston Theatre, Woody Allen's "Alice") as Rudi, Lorraine Serabian (Tony Nomination, winner of the Outer Circle Critics Award, and Barrymore Award Nomination for Zorba!) as Nettie and also Libby Skala (the "Best Solo Performer" award winner, London Fringe Festival 2007).

The production features set design by Rebecca Ferguson, costume design by Marina Reti, and lighting design by Michael Jarett. Jonathan Rivera is the sound engineer, Maria Byerley is the portrait artist and Amanda Gwin is the stage manager.

"The creative direction by Steve Day brings it all together in a unified progression that builds to Ginger's epiphany of self-determination."
