"Rehearsing a drama about abandoned babies" is the answer to the question where on earth I have been for the past month. I play Father William, a young, newly appointed Catholic priest suddenly in charge of a very large congregation. Tomorrow, Thursday June 16th, is an invitational dress rehearsal for Sacred Ground
, Friday is preview, and Saturday is opening. It runs every night except Sundays, at 7:30pm, until the 30th. Some more details:
The Harold Clurman Laboratory Theater Company presents SACRED GROUND by Christina Gorman, directed by Shelley Butler, at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting (31 West 27th Street, Floor 2).
Former socialite Genevieve Barrows spends her days gardening in the church cemetery at the graves of abandoned newborns, while her church pastor and the local police sergeant keep a protective eye on her as she doggedly pursues her daily task. When a guileless young woman invades the trio’s turf, her presence threatens to upend their uneasy alliance. Inexplicably drawn to the cemetery, these four unlikely sentinels clash over grief, law, secrecy and redemption. Featuring Sarah Lord*, Angela Vitale*, Jeff Wills* and Noel Wilson. Presented in conjunction with the Actors Equity Association of North America.
It's a good play, and a nice chance to re-team with Christina Gorman, with whom I worked on As Far As We Know
