Sink or Swim has announced THE CHANGE SEASON: A reparatory of David Auburn's PROOF, directed by Wendy Merritt and Oscar Wilde's AN IDEAL HUSBAND, directed by Michael Hardart. The rotating repertory will play a four-week limited engagement at The Connelly Theater (220 East 4th Street, NYC). Performances begin Thursday, July 5 and continue through Sunday, July 29. PROOF Opening Night is Tuesday, July 10 (7 p.m.). AN IDEAL HUSBAND Opening Night is Wednesday, July 11 (8 p.m.).
In both Proof and An Ideal Husband, the characters are living a life of illusion and lies. What they hold as true has been carefully and willfully constructed. But it is a house of cards and when it
invariably comes tumbling down, it can't be rebuilt. Both Catherine in Proof and Gertrude in An Ideal Husband, are forced to look internally, and when they finally do, they realize that the way they view themselves and those around them must change or how can they move forward?
Sink or Swim Rep has taken that journey-looked within and are embracing the result. Now it's the audiences turn: having faced internal truth last season, are they ready to accept the change that comes with it?
PROOF stars Alan Langdon* as Robert, Kristin Parker* as Catherine, Whitney Kaufman* as Claire, and Eric Smith as Hal.
