Palm Beach Dramaworks

Palm Beach Dramaworks, West Palm Beach's only resident professional theatre, is proud to announce that Maureen Anderman, Dennis Creaghan, Ethan Henry, Margery Lowe, Colin McPhillamy, Angie Radosh, Julie Rowe, Erin Joy Schmidt, and Brian Wallace are among the distinguished actors scheduled to appear during the 2012-13 season. PBD's thirteenth season launches on October 12 with Lanford Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Talley's Folly, which runs through November 11. Erin Joy Schmidt and Brian Wallace are featured as Sally Talley and Matt Friedman, the unlikely sweethearts who find themselves drawn together in an intense romance. Up next is Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance, starring Carbonell Award-winners Angie Radosh and Dennis Creaghan, and Tony Award-nominee Maureen Anderman. This Pulitzer Prize-winning play tells the story of a well-to-do Connecticut family whose life is upended when friends, seized by a nameless terror, come to live with them (December 7 - January 6). The season continues with Lorraine Hansberry's classic drama, A Raisin in the Sun, starring Ethan Henry. In this powerful play, a substantial insurance payment could have life-changing consequences for a poor black family living on Chicago's South Side in the 1950s (February 1 - March 3). The curtain rises next on the comic romp Exit the King, featuring Colin McPhillamy as the incompetent King. In Eugene Ionesco's absurdist work, a dying King has left his country in near ruin. Despite the efforts of the Queen and others to convince him he has only 90 minutes left to live, he refuses to relinquish any control (March 29 - April 28). The season concludes with Brian Friel's Dancing at Lughnasa, with Julie Rowe and Margery Lowe playing two of the five Mundy sisters who make the most of their simple existence in rural Ireland. This Tony Award-winning memory play is told decades later from the perspective of the youngest daughter's son (May 24 - June 16). All plays and dates subject to change.
