Damascus, Presented by The Acting Company, Will Play Limited Off-Broadway Run

News   Damascus, Presented by The Acting Company, Will Play Limited Off-Broadway Run
The Acting Company will present the New York premiere of Andrew Weems' one-man show Damascus June 6-24 at 4th Street Theater.

Ian Belknap directs the production written by and starring Weems.

Damascus, according to press notes, is an "irreverent tale of a dubious hero and his hilarious, brutal journey towards a moment of truth. This uncompromising, haunting but deeply funny story takes us to the other side of the world - and across the busy street."

The production also features set design by Neil Patel, original composition by Fitz Patton and lighting by Daniel Chapman.

This is The Acting Company's first production of a work written by a Company alumnus.

Andrew Weems' earlier works have been presented by Seattle's Intiman Theater, Boise Contemporary Theater and Two River Theater under the direction of Bartlett Sher and Davis McCallum. As an actor, he most recently appeared in Lincoln Center's Blood and Gifts and on Broadway in Born Yesterday. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by clicking here.


Since its founding by John Houseman and Margot Harley in 1972, The Acting Company has performed 137 productions touring to 48 states and ten foreign countries over the course of 39 consecutive seasons.
