Aleisha Force, Judson Jones, Harvey Guion, Mary Ann Hay, Darlene Hope Will Look for Normalcy Off-Broadway

News   Aleisha Force, Judson Jones, Harvey Guion, Mary Ann Hay, Darlene Hope Will Look for Normalcy Off-Broadway Theatre East will kick off its 2012-13 season Aug. 31 with the first preview of Bennett Windheim's Normalcy at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre in Manhattan.

Directed by Benard Cummings, the production will officially open Sept. 5 at 7 PM.

The cast comprises Aleisha Force, Judson Jones, Harvey Guion, Mary Ann Hay, Darlene Hope, Sarah Joyce and Lisha Mckoy.

Normalcy, press notes state, "takes a brutally honest look at transracial adoption, from the point of view of white prospective parents and their circle of family members and co-workers, to social workers and transracially adopted adults. Normalcy tackles themes of identity, race, terrorism, nationalism, manifest destiny, marriage and the media, all through the lens of one white, affluent couple’s attempt to make the hard choice – adopting a black child and the unexpected and unintended consequences that it has on their happy and complacent lives."

The production also features set design by Lea Anello, lighting design by Jessica M. Burgess and sound design and music by Scott O’Brien. The production manager is Eric Kasprisin.

A series of talk-backs will be presented throughout the run, with the author, the producers and director, as well as experts in the field of this emotionally charged play. Show times are Wednesday-Saturday at 7 PM with a special performance Sept. 2 at 7 PM.

Peter Jay Sharp Theatre is located at 416 West 42nd Street. Tickets, priced $18, will soon be available by calling (212) 279-4200 or by visiting www.ticketcentral.com. For more information visit www.normalcytheplay.org.
