WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Country Playhouse is opening the 2014 season with Noël Coward's "A Song at Twilight" on Tuesday, April 29.
The show is directed by Mark Lamos and features Broadway Veterans Mia Dillon, Brian Murray and Gordana Rashovich, with Yale School of Drama graduate Nicholas Carrière. The show is set to run at the Westport Country Playhouse from Tuesday, April 29, through May 17. The show is a co-production with Hartford Stage, where it ran earlier in the year.
“A couple seasons ago Annie Keefe directed a Script-in-Hand reading of this beautiful final play of Coward's, and we were all taken with its wit as well as its bittersweet and wise look at a life lived as a lie,” said Lamos. “The audience loved it, as well, and so we decided to open our 2014 season with a complete revival. Co-produced with Hartford Stage, where it began life last winter, the play features stunning performances by Broadway veterans Brian Murray, Gordana Rashovich, and Mia Dillon.
"The show was a success in Hartford, and it's a treat for us that we will be able to revisit and refine it once again for our Playhouse season premiere. It's a powerful and surprisingly moving work from the 20th century's master of comedy, written at the end of his long and dazzling career.”
“A Song at Twilight” is "an exquisite battle of wits, exploring the nature of passion, the cruelty of love, and the price of hidden secrets," according to a press release. The play is appropriate for ages 16 and up.
“A Song at Twilight” performance schedule is Tuesdays at 8 p.m., Wednesdays at 2 and 8 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 3 and 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m.
