AUGUST 6 – 21 @ IRT THEATER
OPENING NIGHT AUGUST 8
Lisa recently finished a critically-acclaimed run of the world premiere of In the Event of My Death written by Lindsay Joy and directed by Padraic Lillis with Stable Cable Lab Co. at IRT Theater. Here's what people are saying....
"The standouts include... Lisa Jill Anderson as Amber, especially when she slips into a Molly-induced state of high emotion..."
"Lisa Jill Anderson as [Amber,] the delightfully bitter, strung-out and jaded jokester of the group...a strong ensemble of actors who capture the depth of emotion."
"Moving, thanks to the emotional sincerity of the performances in Padraic Lillis's sensitive production for Stable Cable Lab Co." –Village Voice
"The entire cast shine…” -Hi! Drama
"...strong performances by the entire cast. The actors, and Lillis' direction, convincingly, and often movingly, establish the chemistry, rhythm, and dynamics of a group of (mostly) friends with an extensive shared past. (Perhaps this sense of existing intimacy is bolstered by the fact that Poake and Foister are returning from Stable Cable's Live from the Surface of the Moon and Anderson from both that show and the company's subsequent Because Me)."
"...the characters come to life in the hands of the strong ensemble of actors..."
About In the Event of My Death:
Eight former high school friends, now in their mid-twenties, reunite for an impromptu night of mourning and celebration after the suicide of a mutual friend. Finding themselves divided by geography, sexual orientation, religious belief, and ultimately their own prejudices, it’s hard to remember what bonded them together in the first place. When shocking details surrounding their friend’s death bubble to the surface, they may never find their way back to each other without losing themselves in the process.
