Breeders Theater’s “Withering Heights” Opens July 16th At E.B. Foote Winery
It’s Jane Austen meets JP Morgan in Breeders Theaterâ€™s new show, Withering Heights, which opens July 16th at BTB Advertiser E.B. Foote Winery in Burien.
Tickets are $20, and include tasting of E.B. Footeâ€™s award-winning wines and hors dâ€™oeuvres. Tickets are available at the winery, 206-242-3852 and at Corky Cellars, 22511 Marine View Drive, Des Moines, 206-824-9462.
â€œItâ€™s a parody of Victorian romance novels, and a commentary on the financial meltdown,â€ says playwright T.M. Sell.Â â€œI like Victorian romance novels, but theyâ€™re also kind of funny.Â And although Jane Austen didnâ€™t write Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte did), I liked the title.â€
And, technically speaking, Jane Austen was Georgian, not Victorian.
The play tells the story of young Miss Clarity Fugue, who has an inheritance of a most difficult nature.Â Will she find true love in the form of a rich husband before she hits the poorhouse?
Withering Heights will be directed by J. Howard Boyd, with music by Nancy Warren, choreography by Teresa Widner and costumes by Melissa Sell.
The cast includes Adrienne Grieco, Amber Rack, Martin J. Mackenzie, Eric Hartley, Doug Knoop, Brenan Grant, David Roby, Steve Schenk, Melissa Malloy, and Megan Krogstadt.
