Doyle (Sweeney Todd, Company, A Catered Affair) directs ACT's production of the Brecht work which features Tony Award nominee Manoel Felciano (Sweeney Todd), René Augesen, Nick Childress, Anthony Fusco, Rod Gnapp, Caroline Hewitt, Omozé Idehenre, Gregory Wallace and Jack Willis. According to A.C.T., "The play follows the story of a servant girl who saves the life of an abandoned baby boy in wartime. When the wealthy mother returns to claim him, however, their fates lie in the hands of a wily, unpredictable judge whose concern for the poor is rivaled only by his concern for saving his own hide."
The new production follows a new translation by A.C.T. associate artist Domenique Lozano.
Here's a look at the production:
