On the heels of staging Karen Hartman's Gum, Women's Project & Productions will mount Our Place in Time by Clare Coss, beginning previews Jan. 26. Bryna Wortman will direct the play, which will open Feb. 6.
A montage of women's lives from the last fifty years, Our Place in Time travels from two high school girls in the 1950s discovering their sexuality to the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings of the 1990s. Six actors play the 32 characters struggling to discover meaning in the latter half of the 20th Century.
Featured in the cast are Gena Bardwell (Moving Targets), Elizabeth Hess (M. Butterfly), Jacqueline Knapp (Dancing At Lughnasa) Norman Maxwell (Death of a Salesman), Daniel McDonald ("Sex and the City," Steel Pier) and Keith Randolph Smith (The Piano Lesson).
Designing the show are Narelle Sissons (sets), Gail Cooper-Hecht (costumes), Jane Cox (lights) and Stefan Jacobs (sound).
Tickets are $35 and available by calling (212) 239-6200. The Women's Project & Productions Theatre is located at 424 West 55th Street. -- By Christine Ehren
