News   Zimbalist, Rodd and Rusler to Star in World Premiere of Rambo's Spin Cycle
 
The Rubicon Theatre Company in Ventura, CA, will present the world premiere of David Rambo's The Spin Cycle.

Directed by Rubicon artistic director James O'Neil, previews will begin July 31 with an official opening scheduled for Aug. 2. The limited engagement will run through Aug. 24.

Stephanie Zimbalist will head the cast as Wendy with Marcia Rodd as Mom and Morgan Rusler as Mikey.

The Spin Cycle, according to press notes, "pivots upon the return of a baby boomer to her childhood home - a home in which her mother is still trying to do her live-in adult son's laundry. As the sibling rivals quibble, and all three attempt to 'spin' their shared history and tell the story from their point of view, they slowly confront each other's limits, strengths, and the mother's mortality. Among the hilarious antics of the trio, the trials of the baby boomer generation are exposed."

In a statement director O'Neil said, "Our wonderful Ventura audiences always give great feedback during Plays-in-Progress, but this play especially ignited them. They said that The Spin Cycle is their lives…they really loved it. We are so excited to be bringing it back for the world premiere production."

Playwright Rambo added, "One of the reasons I chose the differing points of view [in this play] is we think its all about us…but the core of humanity is empathy. That's what got us out of the cave and what brought us this far. It's what we have to cling to if we're going to make it." The creative team includes scenic designer Tom Buderwitz, lighting designer Nick McCord, sound designer David Beaudry, costume designer Rachel Myer and property designer T Theresa Scarano. Linda M. Tross is production stage manager.
