“There are people who eat and there are those that get eaten,” according to Arena production notes. “First in line to be served is Regina Giddens, clawing her way to wealth with her equally calculating brothers. When their plan to control the local cotton mill is thwarted, they’ll turn to ever more devious schemes, even as it further divides their family. Starring Emmy Award winner Marg Helgenberger (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Lillian Hellman’s classic tale of greed, betrayal and all the sordid ties that bind takes sibling rivalry to unimaginable heights and reveals how far a ruthless family can bend the rules before they break each other.” The production is part of the theatre's Lillian Hellman Festival.
The creative team includes set designer Mikiko Suzuki MacAdams, costume designer Jess Goldstein, lighting designer Nancy Schertler, composer and sound designer Ryan Rumery and wig designer Anne Nesmith. The dialect coach is Mary Coy, the stage manager is Christi P. Spann, and the assistant stage manager is Kristen Mary Harris.
