InterAct's Season of World Premieres Will Launch With New Play Caught

News   InterAct's Season of World Premieres Will Launch With New Play Caught InterAct Theatre Company (Philadelphia, PA) will kick off its season with the world premiere debut of Caught by Christopher Chen, directed by resident artist Rick Shiomi – slated to begin performances Oct. 24.

The show will run through Nov. 16 with an official opening Oct. 29 at 7 PM at the Adrienne Theatre (2030 Sansom Street).

According to press notes, "Shiomi is co-founder/former artistic director of Mu Performing Arts and...Caught is a culmination of the year-long residency funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation."

Here's how InterAct bills the show, "When Chinese artist Lin Bo appears at the renowned Mana Gallery, his harrowing story of imprisonment in a Chinese detention center has the world standing at attention. His fame is short-lived, however, as an American publisher begins to question the authenticity of Lin Bo’s story. Is he telling the truth or is he caught? Accusations fly as Chen’s play cleverly exposes the thin line between truth and fiction where it is often difficult to tell the difference between the con artist and the conned."

The cast includes local Philadelphia actors Bi Jean Ngo, Justin Jain, Ames Adamson, Christie Parker and Jessica DalCanton.

Tickets range from $22-38. To purchase and for more information, visit interacttheatre.org.
