Comedy by Theresa Rebeck will surprise audiences with a dark twist
CANONSBURG, PA, September 9, 2015 – On September 10, Little Lake Theatre Company (www.littlelake.org) will present the area premiere of Theresa Rebeck’s Dead Accounts, a bold comedy with a surprising criminal twist.
A long-time fan of Rebeck’s work, Artistic Director Roxy MtJoy said she is excited for Little Lake to take on a script written by this influential female playwright. “Theresa Rebeck has done a lot for women in theatre, and her plays have a unique tone that I think our audiences will really enjoy.”
Why is Jack back in his parents’ Cincinnati kitchen in the middle of the night eating ice cream from a half dozen cartons that, by the way, he paid a thousand dollars for? And, even though the family can’t stand her, where is his wife? And what was that he said about 27 million dollars? While its snappy dialogue and colorful characters are sure to leave audiences laughing, Dead Accounts is also a serious story about what happens to a person when he suddenly realizes that his life is not at all what he was hoping it would be.
Art Deconciliis directs a stellar ensemble cast featuring Greg Caridi, Danette Levers, Rebecca MacTaggart, Vincent Marshall, and Marianne Shaffer.
Dead Accounts runs September 10-12, 17-19, and 24-26. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.littlelake.org/box-office/ or by phone at 724-745-6300.
