The Shadow of a Doubt by Edith Wharton

A newly discovered play

Jan 14, 2018
1:00PM - 3:00PM

We are thrilled to offer a reading of thisfull length play by Edith Wharton newly discovered by Laura Rattray and Mary Chinery.

The play, set in England, includes Wharton’s signature social realism and use of dramatic irony and wit to satirize social privilege and affluence. The play does take a decidedly dark and controversial turn into a world of extortion, mistrust, deception, and the revelation of an act claimed alternately as euthanasia and as murder.

Directed by Normi Noel
Cast: Martin Asprey*, Lydia Barnett-Mulligan*, Andrew Borthwick-Leslie, Annie Considine, Gary Cookson*, Dave Demke*, Malcolm Ingram*, Rylan Morsbach, Diane Prusha*, Dara Silverman, Jenne Young.

General Admission Tickets: $25; $10 Student Tickets available. Online purchases subject to $4.00 service fee.
