Barrington Stage Company's new production of Philip King's farce See How They Run, directed by Jeff Steitzer, opens Aug. 12 following previews from Aug. 9 on the BSC mainstage in Pittsfield, MA.

The company includes Lisa McCormick, Cary Donaldson, Dina Thomas, Michele Tauber, Michael Brusasco, Jim Schubin, Keith Jochim, Jeff Brooks and Andy Nogasky (Don Lee Sparks withdrew due to illness).

Performances play to Aug. 26. According to BSC, "See How They Run takes its title is a line from the nursery rhyme 'Three Blind Mice.' King's whirlwind comedy is set during World War II, in the living room of a vicarage in the fictitious village of Merton-cum-Middlewick, as a young vicar's wife tries to fit into a small, tightly knit English village. Prepare to be out of breath from laughter as mistaken identities and ludicrous situations run wild in this irrepressible English farce."

The production team includes Bill Clarke (sets), Philip S. Rosenberg (lights), Sara Jean Tosetti (costumes) and Jessica Paz (sound). Renee Lutz is production stage manager.



Born in 1904, King was a British playwright and actor. He wrote a dozen plays including Big Bad Mouse, Dark Lucy, The Dream House and Go Bang Your Tambourine and co-wrote many more.

The Boyd-Quinson Mainstage is at 30 Union Street, Pittsfield. For more information, visit barringtonstageco.org.
