Cast Announced for Pretty Theft

(This cool season poster above was created by Kelly O’Donnell for the Battle)

We have a cast for our upcoming production of Pretty Theft, and it’s a great mix of Members, friends, and new folks. Playwright Adam Szymkowicz, Director Angela Astle and myself worked very hard on achieving a consensus, and the rewards of that process are not only a great cast, but an enhanced understanding of how Adam’s play works. But more on that anon. Here’s the list:
