British writer Jonathan Harvey's Hushabye Moutain will make its American premiere Nov. 17 at Theater LaB Houston as a part of the theatre's contemporary British works season. Jim Philips directs.
In Hushabye, Danny finds himself unable to "pass over" to heaven until he has reconciled his problems on earth, including his relationship with his absent mother. Meanwhile, his lover, Connor, and his best friend, Lana, are struggling to overcome their loss of Danny.
Harvey is best known for his play, Beautiful Thing, which was not only made into a film but cropped up in productions across the country from San Francisco to Chicago to Off-Broadway. His Guiding Star recently played at the Royal National Theatre.
Joel Sandel, Dustin Ross, Tiffani Ginn, James Lane, Scott Bonasso and Susan Shofner star in Hushabye Mountain.
