West Hudson Arts & Theater Company presents River’s Edge Stage, a new series of thought-provoking works and discussions.
The first production in this series, will be a staged reading of the critically acclaimed drama by David Auburn, the winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and a Tony® Award for Best Play. Directed by Don Filicetti.
Catherine — a troubled young woman on the eve of her 25th birthday — has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father’s who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father’s madness — or genius — will she inherit? * (note, contains mature language)
