The Cast of “In The Room” by Lawrence Dial


World Premiere of In The Room opens October 20th!

portraitIn The Room by Lawrence Dial runs October 20 – November 13. Check out www.intheroom.net for more information and to buy tickets!

Seymour, a struggling playwright with one forgotten hit to his name, lands a gig teaching a writers’ workshop. His students are a motley collection of dreamers and amateurs, young and old. As the weeks go by, the students’ plays begin to blur the line between truth and fiction, imperiling the workshop’s delicate balance. In The Room uncovers the hopeless and heroic that exists beyond the page.

Produced by Slant Theatre Project and Kelli Giddish, in association with Wheelhouse Theater Company. Featuring Matt Harrington* (Matilda the Musical), Suzy Jane Hunt* (Alice in “The Americans”), Robert Karma Robinson* (Kansas City Swing at Crossroads Theatre), Jacob Perkins* (The Few at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater), Chelsea Melone (Roadkill, FringeNYC 2016), Susan Neuffer (Lend Me a Tenor at Millbrook Playhouse), and Reuben Barsky (The Bad and the Better with The Amoralists).
