The Sunset Limited to be Staged at Centre College

As Rick Wallach mentioned earlier today on the Forum:

In January 2014, Stacey Peebles is teaching a three-week McCarthy-intensive course at Centre College, and in association with that class, she’s arranging a production of The Sunset Limited. The show will run for three nights, January 16-18, in Weisiger Theatre, a 360-seat theater-in-the-round on campus. Peter Josyph will star as White, and Stephen Dupree (who played the role in Knoxville, winning the approval of Wesley Morgan and Dennis McCarthy) will star as Black. Patrick Kagan-Moore, a Centre drama prof, will direct, and Centre students will crew the show. Stacey got the idea when watching [Kagan-Moore’s] production of Sam Shepard’s Buried Child, which has a few distinctly McCarthyesque touches. Tickets will likely be priced at $10.

Centre College is in Danville, Kentucky, about 45 minutes south of Lexington. If you’re fond of bourbon and/or horses in addition to star-studded McCarthy plays, it’s a nice place to visit.

I should also take a moment to plug another production of The Sunset Limited, which is currently running in my hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, Fridays and Saturdays through October 13; for more details, visit Piano Man Pictures or the production’s Facebook page.
