RED BANK, NJ — Two River Theater announces the full cast and creative team for its production of Lives of Reason, a world premiere written by Robert Rechnitz and Kenneth Stunkel, directed by Jonathan Fox.
Set at an English Department faculty party, Lives of Reason brings audiences inside the world of academia, exposing the challenges of intellectual life—and what happens when one woman’s secret passions explode and her authentic self is revealed.
Says Artistic Director John Dias, “Robert Rechnitz and Kenneth Stunkel are late-career playwrights who spent much of their professional lives as professors at Monmouth University, which is where Bob—with his wife Joan—founded Two River Theater 22 years ago. It has been moving for us to witness both men, who began their careers as artists—Bob as an actor, Ken as a dancer—embark on a new creative endeavor as co-writers of this play.”
Featured in the company are Matthew Lieff Christian (Anthem), Philip Goodwin (As You Like It), Maurice Jones (Romeo and Juliet), Mairin Lee (The Heiress), Patrick Monaghan (Two River Theater’s A Little Shakespeare program), William Parry (Sunday in the Park with George), Peter Rini (Proposals), Jay Russell (End of the Rainbow), Maureen Silliman (The Glass Menagerie), and John C. Vennema (The Ride Down Mt Morgan).Performances: Saturday, January 9 – Sunday, February 7, 2016 Opening: Friday, January 15, 2016 at 8pm
