A fit for foodies comedy by award winning playwright Theresa Rebeck
Performances August 6-22 at Windhover Performing Arts Center in Rockport
Gloucester Stage Company is pleased to announce the Boston area premiere of SEARED by Pulitzer Prize finalist and two-time Emmy Award® nominee Theresa Rebeck, Directed by Victoria Gruenberg, performances are at Windhover Center for Performing Arts, SEARED from Friday, August 6-22.
A comedy by critically-acclaimed playwright Theresa Rebeck SEARED explores the delicate balance between a creative spirit navigating success, recognition, and responsibility to a financial bottom line. Brilliant, hot-headed chef Harry scores a mention in a food magazine with his signature scallops, and his business partner Mike finally sees profits within reach. The only problem is Harry refuses to recreate his masterpiece for the masses. Mix in a shrewd restaurant consultant and a waiter with dreams of his own, and it all goes to hell in this hilarious and insightful new play that asks us to consider where art ends and commerce begins.
Brooklyn-based stage director Victoria Gruenberg will be making her directorial debut at Gloucester Stage with credits, including the 2018 Williamstown Theatre Festival directing corps where she assisted directed the critically acclaimed SEARED and then in New York City at the MCC Theater Space. The cast stars four more newcomers to Gloucester Stage Emily Bosco (Emily), Matt Monaco (Mike), Jordan Pearson (Rodney), and James Louis Wagner (Harry).
Performances are outdoors Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 3:30 pm at Windhover Center for the Performing Arts, 257R Granite St, Rockport, MA. Tickets are now on sale and available at GloucesterStage.com.
