Fans of Rick Foucheux, David Dubov, and Steve LaRocque will relish this rare opportunity to see them on stage together in Eugene O’Neill’s HUGHIE on 30 October for a QTC Fundraiser. Tickets available now!
One of the D.C.-area’s most esteemed and beloved actors, Rick Foucheux, reprises his acclaimed portrayal of Erie Smith in American master playwright Eugene O’Neill’s one-act HUGHIE in a benefit performance for QTC. Foucheux is joined by QTC favorites David Dubov and Steve LaRocque.
HUGHIE is set in the lobby of a small hotel on a West Side street in midtown New York during the summer of 1928. Small-time hustler Erie Smith (Foucheux) laments to the hotel’s new night clerk Charlie Hughes (Dubov), how Smith’s luck has gone bad since the death of Hughie, Hughes’ predecessor. LaRocque (Hickey in QTC’s THE ICEMAN COMETH and James Tyrone in A LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT) will read O’Neill’s detailed stage directions.
Foucheux’s Helen Hayes-nominated performance directed by the Washington Stage Guild’s late director, John MacDonald, was hailed by the Washington Post as “haunting” and “beautifully acted.”
Join Foucheux, Dubov, and LaRocque after the show for a drink and bite to eat in the lobby. And, come early (6 pm) to take part in the silent auction with theatre ticket donations from Signature, Round House, Flying V, and QTC, as well as spa services from Salon Fusion.
Please consider supporting QTC with a tax-deductible donation in addition to the general ticket price of $50 for this benefit. The donation can be included in one of the specially priced donor tickets for which you will receive a statement from QTC for your 2016 taxes.
