The Dark at the Top of the Stairs

The Dark at the Top of the Stairs
By William Inge
Directed by Lee Kasper

June 3-6, 2015 | The Lee Strasberg Theatre

Synopsis: The setting is a small Oklahoma town in the early 1920s and the home of the Flood family. Here we find Rubin, a traveling salesman for a harness firm, Cora, his sensitive and lovely wife, Sonny, their little boy and Reenie, their teenage daughter. The plot consists of a series of short stories — the fight between a husband and wife; the fear of an overly shy young girl on going to a dance; the problems of an introverted little boy who feels that the whole world is against him; the corroding marriage of Cora’s rowdy sister; and the tragedy of a military school cadet who suffers from the stigma of being Jewish in a small mid-western town.

Featuring: Aidan Futterman, Miah Gonzales, Tate Kenney, Stephen McFarlane, Radhika Mehrotra, Daniel Napolitano, Oren Oettinger, George Stevens
