The Horse Cave Theatre, Kentucky's professional festival theatre, begins its summer season June 25 with Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, running through Sept. 15. Horse Cave artistic director Warren Hammack plays Willy Loman.
Following the season opener are Marc Camoletti's farce, Don't Dress For Dinner (July 2-Oct. 3) and the world premiere of Frank Schaefer's Someday's Gone (July 9-Aug. 28), developed through the Horse Cave's Kentucky Voices program. The late summer-early fall play series will be Mark St. Germain's Camping With Henry & Tom (Aug. 13-Oct. 2); Lewis Galantiere's Nazi-occupied France adaptation of Antigone (Sept. 17 to Oct.14); and a two week run of Agatha Christie's mystery thriller, The Unexpected Guest (Oct. 15-31).
Shows at the Horse Cave run in a three play repertory. Begun in 1977, the Horse Cave presents a summer to fall season of comedies, farces, new works, and classic dramas.
