Former Trinity Repertory and Dallas Theatre Center artistic director Adrian Noble is the guest of honor at Dallas' Kitchen Dog Theater's annual Hooch-N-Pooch fundraiser March 25. A performance of Naomi Wallace's One Flea Spare, directed by Noble, follows.
One Flea Spare, set during London's Great Plague of 1665, pits four strangers against each other in the room in which they are trapped. Commissioned for London's Bush Theatre, Flea made its American debut at the Humana Festival of New American Plays and garnered an Obie Award in its New York City run. Wallace's other plays include Slaughter City, The War Boys and In the Heart of America, a Gulf War Drama.
Hall, a native Texan, counts among his awards and accolades the first Elliot Norton Award, the Margo Jones Award, a special Tony Award, four lifetime achievement awards and as many honorary degrees.
The ensemble cast includes KDT artistic director Dan Day, Sean Hennigan, Elizabeth Rothan, Erin Neal and KDT artistic associate Lynn Mathis.
The evening will also feature a silent auction and the raffle of an original drawing by David Bates. Tickets are $100-$500. For more information, call (214) 953-1055.
