Shanley's Defiance Will Make Philly Premiere at Bristol March 24

News   Shanley's Defiance Will Make Philly Premiere at Bristol March 24 Bristol Riverside Theatre in Bristol, PA, will present the Philadelphia-area premiere of John Patrick Shanley's Defiance, part two of the author's planned trilogy exploring hierarchies in America, March 24-April 12.

The trilogy began with Doubt, a Parable, which won the Pulitzer Prize. Both plays were produced at Manhattan Theatre Club, and are getting regional productions now. The third play has not yet surfaced. According to BRT, "Defiance explores ethics of power in the military and presents a riveting look at race relations, honor and morality as two Marines, a white colonel and an African American captain, clash over issues of authority, discrimination, infidelity and loyalty in North Carolina in 1971."

Directed by BRT founding producing director Susan D. Atkinson, Defiance (which officially opens March 26), features Keith Baker as Lt. Colonel Littlefield, Lindsay Smiling as Captain Lee King, Michael Brinckman as P.F.C. Evan Davis, Gene D'Alessandro as Dunney Sergeant, Clayton Dean Smith as Chaplain White and Barbara McCulloh as Littlefield's wife Margaret.
