DASH, a new play by John Thorburn Hall, directed and developed by David Lamberton, will make its online world premiere on CreateTheater April 19, 2021 at 7pm EDT.
The play is based on actual events in 1976 war-torn Nigeria, when an African-American government envoy arrives on a US trade mission, as well as a personal mission to explore his racial identity. After witnessing the murder of an innocent hotel worker by a fellow American, he is forced into a crisis of conscience. The cast is composed of J. Dolan Byrnes (Lother), Alexander D Carney (Harry), Nathan Faudree (Nick), Steve Hauck (Fred), Russell Jordan (Phil), Elizabeth June (Mrs. Norgabin), Omar M’Sai (Awahla), and Tomike Ogugua (Eshu).
Although recorded on the Zoom platform with physically-isolated actors, DASH is a hybrid performance, not a typical ‘Zoom Reading.’ Produced by The Players of Providence Rhode Island, where both David and John are members, tickets are now available online for a $10 donation until Friday, April 23rd at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dash-tickets-150330872687 .
