Repertory company prepares
for season of diverse drama
By KELLY RHODES
PlayMakers Repertory Company
is gearing up for a theatrical year full
of Shaw, Shakespeare, local talent,
guest artists and airlines.
American Airlines is helping out
by co-producing the first production
of the PRC's 13th season, "The
Marriage of Figaro," in celebration
of their daily non-stop service to Paris
from Raleigh. The French play will
begin September 21.
"Figaro" is a comedy of romance
and intrigue, set in the 18th century,
that champions one's character rather
than birth. After being banned by
Louis XIV, the popular play was one
of the first things to incite the masses,
leading to the French Revolution.
PRC's own Bernard Addison is
portraying Figaro. He will be joined
by three guest artists: Johanna
Jackson as Marceilina, Terrence
Caza as Count Almaviva and Mary
O'Brady as Rosina, the Countess
Previews for the play are Sept. 21
and 23. Opening night is Sept. 24,
and the play will run through Oct.
9. Ticket information is available for
any PRC production at 962-1 122.
The second production PRC will .
undertake is "The Road to Mecca,"
which begins Oct.' 26. Christian
Angermann will direct the work by
South African playwright Athol
Fugard. The play deals with the issues
of aging and independence through
the character of Helen, an aging artist
who is torn between a priest advising
her to move into a home and a friend
telling her to remain free. Currently
an Off-Broadway critical and popular
success, "The Road to Mecca" is
being played in only a few regional
theaters in the country.
Christmas will see the return of
Dylan Thomas' "A Child's Christmas
in Wales," opening Nov. 30. Adapted
by Jeremy Brooks and Adrian Mit
chell from Thomas' poem, the play
is a wistful and fun memory of many
childhood Christmases in a remote
Welsh village. Angermann will also
direct this play.
With the new year, PRC will
present new talent in the form of
Elizabeth Spencer, an acclaimed
. - SV :
PlayMakers will soon present one of Elizabeth Spencer's works
Southern novelist who is trying her
hand at drama with "For Lease or
Sale." Spencer, an instructor in the
creative writing program, began the
play several years ago while living in
When she came to UNC in 1986,
she mentioned the play to PRC
Executive Producer Milly Barranger.
"She immediately took an interest in
it," Spencer said. During a reading
of the play, Spencer said, artistic
director David Hammond listened in.
"He was taken with the situation and
characters, too," she added.
Hammond and Spencer worked
for a month during the summer to
trim the four and a half hour play
to two hours. "I'm a novelist turned
dramatist," she said. "IVe learned a
"For Lease or Sale" will open Jan.
25 with Hammond directing. The
story is set in a Mississippi town
where a man returns just as his family
home is about to be torn down for
real estate development.
The PRC will also put on Bernard
Shaw's play "Misalliance." PRC's
own artist Steven Pounders said that
this play is what he is most looking
forward to for the year. "I'm a great
fan of Shaw," he said.
PRC will announce a guest artist
for the comedy at a later date. Shaw
uses the stage as a scene for a scramble
between parental and children's views
of marriage, discovered when a Polish
aviatrix parachutes into the lawn of
an exclusive summerhouse.
The last play of the PRC season
has not been selected, but it will be
a work by Shakespeare. If Kyle
MacLachlan is available, PRC will
produce "Hamlet," with the star of
"Blue Velvet" and "Dune" in the lead
role. Otherwise, PRC will produce
"Taming of the Shrew," the comedy
of love and war between Kate and
Petruchio. Either way, Hammond
will direct the Shakespearean seg
ment of the season.
PRC received two gifts recently
that will help the productions reach
the stage. Exxon presented money to
enable the staff to purchase a steam
generator for the costume depart
ment. A steam generator is used to
operate two dye vats, enabling truer
and more even colors in larger
quantities of fabric, managing direc
tor Margaret Hahn said.
"In the past, we have had to use
dyeing facilites as far away as High
Point or make do with large pots
heated over hot plates," Hahn said.
"It is the crowning piece to the
renovation of the painting and dyeing
done in the costume shop." Other
donations for renovation were made
by Mrs. Jack Welch and the Kyser
The other gift is a benefit from
Glaxo Inc. which will help fund
performances for high school and
junior high school students during the
1988-89 Educational Matinee Series.
In the past decade, PRC has reached
more than 25,000 students through
