News Edge Theatre Company Sets Up a Living Room in Africa Off-Broadway March 13 Off-Broadway's Edge Theatre Company will present Bathsheba Doran's play Living Room in Africa at Theatre Row March 13-April 15. Opening night is March 22. Carolyn Cantor directs.

The cast includes Marsha Stephanie Blake (Aunt Dan and Lemon), Guy Boyd (People Be Heard, Stone Cold Dead Serious), Rob Campbell (Small Tragedy), Michael Chernus (Mr. Marmalade, A Number), Ana Reeder (Sight Unseen) and Maduka Steady (Amy’s View). The plot concerns Edward and Marie, who move from the UK to a remote African village to open an art museum. Soon after arriving, however, they realize they are in the middle of an area beset with poverty and AIDS, and are faced with some troubling questions about personal and political responsibilities.

Living Room in Africa was a finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Award and had workshops at the 2004 Eugene O’Neill Theatre Conference and Gloucester Stage Company (Massachusetts) in 2005.

Cantor directed Edge Theatre Company's last production, Craig Wright's Orange Flower Water. Other Edge productions, which come around at the rate of about one a year, include Blackbird and Stone Cold Dead Serious.
