The Strangerer to Play Off-Broadway's Barrow Street Theatre in July

News   The Strangerer to Play Off-Broadway's Barrow Street Theatre in July Theater Oobleck's acclaimed production of Mickle Maher's The Strangerer — described as "part political satire, part classical drama, part contemporary debate, and a murder mystery with the murderers in plain view" — will begin performances at Off-Broadway's Barrow Street Theatre July 9.

The production, which ended its run at Chicago's Chopin Theatre June 29, is scheduled for a six-week engagement at the Barrow Street. The original Chicago cast — including Guy Massey, Mickle Maher, Colm O'Reilly and Brian Shaw — will star.

Opening night is scheduled for July 13.

The Strangerer, according to press notes, "collides several of Camus' works with the first Bush/Kerry presidential debate in 2004. The formalities of the debate are overturned as Bush and Kerry struggle with the question not of if or why an innocent man should be killed (the man in question being moderator Jim Lehrer), but rather what is the proper manner in which to go about killing him."

The design team comprises Maher (sets), Martha Bayne (lighting) and Chris Schoen (sound).

Show times are Tuesday-Saturday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 2:30 and 7:30 PM. The Barrow Street Theatre is located in Manhattan on the corner of Seventh Avenue and Barrow Street, one block south of Christopher Street. Tickets, priced $25, are available by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com.
