Cast Revealed for Hare's Secret Rapture at Trinity Rep

News   Cast Revealed for Hare's Secret Rapture at Trinity Rep Phyllis Kay and Rachael Warren will star as sisters in David Hare's stinging family drama The Secret Rapture for the Trinity Repertory Theatre.

Trinity Rep artistic director Curt Columbus directs the work about a British family in crisis. Performances will begin Feb. 20 and will run through March 29 in the Dowling Theater.

Kay and Warren star as sisters Marion French and Isobel Glass who, according to press notes, "have their hands full following their father's passing: They must negotiate settling his estate, their own lives and ambitions, and the reckless behavior of their stepmother."

Anne Scurria will play the role of the stepmother in a company that also features Fred Sullivan, Stephen Thorne and Patricia Lynn.

"I'm thrilled to give our audience a chance to visit the world that David Hare creates in The Secret Rapture. At turns wry, dramatic, and wise, this play is a joy whenever you encounter it," director Columbus said in a statement. "David Hare is a writer who is particularly well-known in England and less so here. It's a great gift to be in the same room with his powerful words, and I am so pleased to bring those words to life at Trinity Rep."

The Secret Rapture has set designs by James Schuette, costumes by Ron Cesario, lighting by Deb Sullivan and sound design by Peter Sasha Hurowitz. Tickets to The Secret Rapture at Trinity Rep, 201 Washington Street in Providence, RI, are available by calling (401) 351-4242.
