Merrimack Rep Presents "Tryst"
Provocative Thriller Opens January 6
Merrimack Repertory Theatre opens 2011 with the suspenseful drama "Tryst" by Karoline Leach, running January 6 - 30, 2011. Directed by Joe Brancato, "Tryst" is a romantic London thriller about a handsome con-man who marries simple, well-off women only to leave them inexplicably poor and husbandless the day after their honeymoons. Things change when his charms meet their match. The suspenseful drama of love and betrayal includes adult content, sexual situations, nudity and is recommended for mature audiences.
"Tryst" features Mark Shanahan and Andrea Maulella, reprising their roles from the 2006 Alley Theatre production. Mark Shanahan previously appeared in "Augusta" at Merrimack Rep while Andrea Maulella makes her MRT debut.
Director Joe Brancato previously directed "Tryst "Off-Broadway
at the Promenade Theatre (where the production received
an Outer Critics nomination for Best Play) as well as
at the Alley Theatre in Houston. He is also the founder and Artistic Director
of Penguin Rep in Rockland County, New York.
"This romantic psychological thriller can only find
a home in theatres where the audiences have come to appreciate language
and multidimensional characters. Under the artistic directorship of Charles
Towers, Merrimack Rep has become such a haven for great writers
as Karoline Leach who can take us to faraway places, yet somehow keep
the storyline remarkably relevant and contemporary!”
