The Lark Theatre Company's production of Pera Palas received critical acclaim earlier this season. Now the company returns with, Den of Thieves by Carl Ross, Sept. 30-Oct. 5 at The Lark Studio.
In Den, Mister Bo, a "fence" -- someone who moves stolen goods and dispose of dead bodies -- can do nothing to help Twist, the con-woman he's raised and trained. In the strange world of criminal underbelly, Twist falls in love with a professional killer who's come to take Bo out.
Den will be produced as part of The Lark's "BareBones" Season, which highlights new, fully rehearsed plays with the simplest suggestion of the normal trappings of production (set, lights, costumes). Pera Palas started for The Lark in their BareBones Season.
The production is directed by Jack Cummings III, with a cast including Thom Christopher, Mark Fish, Melinda Page Hamilton, Tom Ligon, Caitlin O'Connell, William Parry and James Weber.
The Lark Theatre Company's BareBones production of Den of Thieves by Carl Ross plays Sept. 30-Oct. 5, at The Lark Studio (939 Eighth Ave). For tickets ($12) or more information call (212) 246-8355. -- By Sean McGrath
