News   Keller and McGeever Climb K2 at Berkshire Theatre Festival, Starting June 17
Greg Keller and Tim McGeever are the stranded climbers in Patrick Meyers' tense drama K2, which begins performances June 17 at the Berkshire Theatre Festival.

Wes Grantom directs the two-hander that will officially open June 19 and continue through July 3. Keller (Smudge, 33 Variations) is cast as Harold with McGeever (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, The Lion King) as Taylor. The duo portray two climbers stranded on a cliffside of the second largest mountain in the world.

According to BTF, "At 27,000 feet, a single rope can mean the difference between death and survival. Trapped on a ledge beyond reach of rescue, a man struggles frantically to save himself and his injured partner. With time, the elements, and faltering hope working against them, the men turn to each other in a desperate attempt to grasp their situation. K2 is a survival story with a deep emotional core, a gripping tale of two men whose lives and souls are threatened by the unforgiving mountainside around them."

The design team includes Kenneth Grady Barker (scenic design), Laurie Churba Kohn (costume design), Shawn E. Boyle (lighting design) and J Hagenbuckle (sound design).

K2 premiered on Broadway in 1983 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Jeffrey DeMunn earned a Tony Award nomination for his performance as Taylor. Scenic designer Ming Cho Lee also earned the Tony Award for his dynamic set.
