Michael O’Donnell directs Steven Walters' new comedy and a cast that includes Chris Dall'au, Jake Keefe, Lucy Sheftall and Danny Skinner.
The play, according to Araca notes, "is set on a sun-drenched, emotionally challenged parcel of the West Texas landscape. Here, three friends are held captive by apathy, fear and addiction awaiting a savior. Enter April. The show is kinda like therapy, only with guns, booze, and just the right amount of peyote."
The Araca Project is a new program created by The Araca Group to foster emerging theatre artists. The Araca Project was created "to give artists a pride of ownership in their careers by providing a forum which both manifests their artistic visions as well as galvanizes classroom theory with real-world action."
This production is a pioneering partnership between Araca Group and The Department of Drama in Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA). The partnership will continue with productions of The Tramaine Experience (Sept. 22-Oct. 2); Peter and I (Oct. 6-16); and The Odyssey (Oct. 20-30).
