Casting Announced for Guthrie's World Premiere of Ferguson's Super Monkey

News   Casting Announced for Guthrie's World Premiere of Ferguson's Super Monkey The Guthrie will present the world premiere of Super Monkey Sept. 17-Oct. 4 in the Dowling Studio.

The production was collaboratively created by Jon Ferguson and an ensemble of performers: Jason Ballweber, Tyson Forbes, Sophie Gori, Rebecca Hurd, Emily King, Elise Langer, Sara Richardson, Anthony Sarnicki, Paul Sommers and Dario Tangleson.

Also directed by Ferguson, Super Monkey will officially open Sept. 19.

The Guthrie describes the new work as such: "Super Monkey is the impressive story of an elite group of individuals that inhabit a modern urban condominium and the people that serve them. A universal story of poisonous status obsession, miscommunication and fear of the unknown, Super Monkey barrels out of control to inter-personal catastrophe and the fall of a society. Highly visual, physical, poetic and comic with a sharp and dark edge, this modern farce by award-winning theater-maker Jon Ferguson explores the idea of personal and structural facade and the ever present potential descent into chaos."

For tickets, priced $18-$30, call (612) 377-2224 or visit www.guthrietheater.org.

  The Guthrie is located at 818 South 2nd Street (at Chicago Avenue) in downtown Minneapolis.
