On September 10th and 11th, Readers Theater Repertory opened its fourth season with Politics as Usual, featuring Out at Sea, and Fox Hunt, both by Slawomir Mrozek.
Directed by Mary McDonald-Lewis, the twin allegories of the violent results of political rhetoric is especially timely. “Citizens are not only misled by today’s politicians,” said McDonald-Lewis, “but are manipulated into making potentially fatal choices. Mrozek’s stories have as much, or more, application to today’s climate than it did when he wrote it.”
Cast members included Tobias Andersen, David Berkson, Robert Blanche, Danny Bruno, Don Stewart Burns, Victor Morris, Eric Newsome, Chris Porter, and Jeffrey Siri.
