Interview by Jean-Claude van Itallie
October 7 - October 16, 2010
Heart & Dagger Productions is proud to present its sophomore show, Interview by Jean-Claude van Itallie, directed by Joey C. Pelletier. The production runs October 7th – October 16th at the Plaza Theatre at the Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02118.
The topic under examination is an employment interview--treated in a satirical, imaginatively stylized, mordantly comic way. Four masked interviewers interview a scrubwoman, a house painter, a banker and a lady's maid. While commonplace enough, suddenly the most innocent statements are foreboding. The questioners are trying to destroy the dignity of the four clients, and the latter fight to hold onto their self-respect. We, the audience, are thrust into awareness. The insulation burns off, and we have no choice to perceive.
Cast includes Mikey DiLoreto (Music From a Sparkling Planet, Happy Medium Theatre, Where Moments Hung Before, Boston Actors Theatre), Jordan L. Greeley (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Contemporary Theatre of Boston, The Buddy Holly Story, Turtle Lane Playhouse), Nick Miller (Refuge, Happy Medium Theatre, On This Moon, Flat Earth Theatre) Kiki Samko (Into the Fens, Heart & Dagger, Moliere Squared, Imaginary Beasts), Audrey Lynn Sylvia (Music From a Sparkling Planet, The Gingerbread Lady, Happy Medium Theatre), Amy Meyer (Moliere Squared, Imaginary Beasts) Erin Rae Zalaski (Into the Fens, Heart & Dagger Productions, Production Manager of Heart & Dagger) and also features, Tommy O’Malley, Corina Bucur, and Kevin Paquette.
