QTC’s 2016-17 Season of 3 Plays Comprises…
Conor McPherson’s THE NIGHT ALIVE
21 October – 20 November 2016
“Something bright and beautiful pulses in the shadows of The Night Alive,” wrote New York Times reviewer Ben Brantley about McPherson’s most recent play, winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. Brantley praised McPherson’s “singular gift for making the ordinary glow with an extra dimension, like a gentle phosphorescence waiting to be coaxed into radiance.” The often dark, at times violent, drama about the relationship among five highly imperfect people is also infused with black comedy as these sad souls fumble in the darkness toward the light. Directed by Jack Sbarbori and featuring David Dubov, David Mavricos, Chelsea Mayo, Joe Palka, and Matthew Vaky.
