Actor-Driven Bridge Repertory Theatre
Debuts With Pinter's "The Lover"

Boston's newest theater company, Bridge Repertory Theater, has chosen Harold Pinter’s "The Lover" as its debut offering. Directed by Shana Gozansky, the production will play the Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts from February 28 - March 17.

One of Pinter’s less produced plays, "The Lover" is a psychosexual dark comedy performed in a single act. The action concerns a young couple on the brink of crisis as their elaborate sexual fantasy begins to cannibalize their marital reality.

A new player in the Boston theater scene, Bridge Rep says it puts the actor’s craft firmly in the driver’s seat throughout the entire rehearsal process. Olivia D’Ambrosio, Producing Artist of Bridge Rep, describes the genesis of the company as “...a gesture of connection. Our unique, actor-driven aesthetic connects audience members to real, live performers.”

The cast features three of Bridge Rep’s founders: Five time IRNE nominee McCaela Donovan, Brown University/Trinity Rep MFA graduate Joe Short, and Equity Membership Candidate Juan C. Rodriguez. Their combined performance credits include Huntington Theatre, Commonwealth Shakespeare Company, SpeakEasy Stage, Shakespeare Theatre/DC, Public Theatre/NYSF, and Trinity Rep, among others.
