The world premiere workshop of discontent will be performed at The Whitney Center for the Arts on August 23rd and 24th at 8pm, with a matinee performance August 25th, at 2pm.
Written by Berkshire native Caroline Fairweather (Director of Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens; the Whitney Center of the Arts, BroadwayWorld nominee for Best Actress in The Tempest: A Musical; GhostLit Rep), discontent is a devised riff on Richard III that explores the relationship between women & bodies, children & legacy, union & loneliness. This is a fast-paced tale of beauty and revenge. The workshop features Shea Kelly as Rue, David Bertoldi as Anthony and Annarose Stewart as Edel.
Directed by Co-Founder and Co-Artistic Director of GhostLit Repertory Theatre Company, Caitlin Teeley (Director of Peter and the Startcatcher; GhostLit Rep, Co-Director of Fun Home; GhostLit Rep- BroadwayWorld Nomination for Best Musical) this workshop marks the third installment in GhostLit Rep’s annual “Berkshire New Works Lab”.
