This Laurence Olivier award-winning play was recently revived on Broadway starring Michelle Williams and Jeff Daniels. It was inspired in part by the crimes of sex offender Toby Studebaker and depicts a young woman confronting a middle-aged man, now a successful executive, fifteen years after being sexually abused by him when she was twelve.
Where is the line drawn between love and manipulation?
The cast of this electrifying play introduces two of Atlanta's finest newcomers: James Carey and Allison Dayne.
James R. Carey is an award winning film and theatre director/producer, plus a teacher and performer with both national and international credits who has been based out of Los Angeles since the 1980’s.
Allison Dayne recently was awarded the title of Best Spoken Actor from the New York Times and her original play Unrequited won the Critics Choice Award in the 2019 Atlanta Fringe Festival. She is one of the youngest graduates of the Second City Comedy Studies program.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy.
