Neil Brookshire and Laine Satterfield in "Sight Unseen"
This humorous Obie Award-winning, Pulitzer Prize-nominated work by Donald Margulies tells the story of a wildly successful American Jewish artist whose British retrospective show leaves him pierced by racism and false memory. His journey causes him to question his purpose and reinvent the basis for his self worth.
“I was introduced to Margulies’ Sight Unseen several years ago in Idaho,” says Anna Johnson, Cadence Theatre’s artistic and managing director. “There are a few plays and musicals that have made a significant impact on my life, and this happens to be one of them. Audiences love it, too. It is about love, relationships, art, faith, and how the tiniest choices that we make can determine our destiny.”
Directed by Rusty Wilson, and featuring Neil Brookshire, Heather Falks, Andrew Firda and Laine Satterfield, the show opens Saturday and runs through Nov. 8 in the Theatre Gym at Virginia Rep Center. Nationally known sculptor Paul DiPasquale will lead a Talk Back Sunday post-show discussion on Oct. 26. $28. 282-2620 or cadencetheatre.org.
