The Weekend Theater’s production of Joe Pintauro’s Raft of the Medusa opened last weekend. It is scheduled to continue this weekend and next on Friday and Saturdays at 7:30pm. However, due to a car crashing into the Weekend Theatre building, further performances may be postponed. Please check the Weekend Theatre’s website for updates.
Joe Pintauro’s drama presents a microcosm of those affected by AIDS in the earlier days of the crisis through the device of a diverse therapy group clashing, confronting, and comforting each other as they work through their emotions about their devastating diagnosis.
The cast includes Alan Douglas, Ryan Whitfield, Jimmy Walker, Brad Burleson, Rachel Bland, Dale Ellis, Drew Ellis, Madison Hannahs, Morgan Henard, Grace Lytle, Josh Peace, Byron Taylor and Manny Urban. Ralph Hyman directs, marking his 50th production at the theater.
