News   Keller and McGeever Will Be Stranded at 27,000 Feet in K2 at Berkshire Festival
 
Greg Keller and Tim McGeever will climb Patrick Meyers' K2 at the Berkshire Theatre Festival. The dramatic two-hander will launch the season on the Unicorn Stage June 17.

Wes Grantom will stage the production that will officially open June 19 and continue through July 3. Keller (Smudge, 33 Variations) will portray Harold with McGeever (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, The Lion King) as Taylor. The duo will portray two climbers stranded on a cliffside of the second largest mountain in the world.

According to BTF, "At 27,000 feet, a single rope can mean the difference between death and survival. Trapped on a ledge beyond reach of rescue, a man struggles frantically to save himself and his injured partner. With time, the elements, and faltering hope working against them, the men turn to each other in a desperate attempt to grasp their situation. K2 is a survival story with a deep emotional core, a gripping tale of two men whose lives and souls are threatened by the unforgiving mountainside around them."

The design team will include Kenneth Grady Barker (scenic design), Laurie Churba Kohn (costume design), Shawn E. Boyle (lighting design) and J Hagenbuckle (sound design).

K2 premiered on Broadway in 1983 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Jeffrey DeMunn earned a Tony Award nomination for his performance as Taylor. Scenic designer Ming Cho Lee also earned the Tony Award for his dynamic set.
