News   U.S. Debut of Happy Now? Opens at Yale Rep Oct. 30
Lucinda Coxon's Happy Now?, starring Kelly AuCoin and Mary Bacon, officially opens at Yale Repertory Theatre Oct. 24.

The U.S. premere of Coxon's dark comedy, under the direction of Liz Diamond, began performances Oct. 24 and will play a limited engagement through Nov. 15.

In addition to AuCoin (Julius Caesar) and Bacon (Rock 'n' Roll), the cast also includes Brian Keane (Cyrano de Bergerac), David Andrew Macdonald (Coram Boy), Joan MacIntosh (Orpheus Descending), Quentin Maré (Rock 'n' Roll) and Katharine Powell (The Farnsworth Invention).

"A chance encounter at a hotel plays upon Kitty's mind as she struggles to balance personal freedom with family life, fidelity and a demanding job. Her husband is more interested in misplaced apostrophes than in their marriage, her parents are looking down the barrel of oblivion, and although she toys with the idea of joining a gym, Kitty's running out of time for big changes,” read press notes for Happy Now?

Designing the Yale Rep run are Sarah Pearline (set design), Heidi Hanson (costume design), Matt Frey (lighting design), David Budries (sound design) and fight director David DeBesse.

Tickets are available by visiting www.yalerep.org, by calling (203) 432-1234 or by visiting the Yale Rep box office (1120 Chapel Street). *
