Kicking off the Connecticut stage's 40th anniversary season, 8 by Tenn will be directed by artistic director Michael Wilson. The collection of one-act plays will feature a number of world premieres from the American scribe. The show will be performed in two separate evenings — denoted as Rose or Blue — in a program of four plays.
The Rose night features the world premieres of The Palooka, The One Exception, Now the Cats With Jewelled Claws and Portrait of a Madonna. The Blue program features The Lady of Larkspur Lotion, Something Unspoken, The Chalky White Substance and The Gnädiges Fräulein.
Helmar Augustus Cooper and Remo Airaldi are also among the cast who play multiple roles in the various programs.
