Two Rooms by Lee Blessing, A Stage Read
Sept 2nd and 3rd at 7:30pm
Directed by Monica Tamborello
Cast: Sean Powell, Anthony Pyatt, Jr, Clare Lopez and Laura Mansoori
Two rooms, both stripped of almost everything. One in Beirut, where Michael is held hostage. One in the United States, where Lanie attempts to understand Michael's circumstances and connect with her husband. Weaving in and out of real conversations and illusions, Two Rooms tells the story of Lanie's struggle as she tries to decide the best maneuvers she can make to bring her husband home. Does she continue her silence as requested by her government contact from the State Department? Or does she align with a reporter eager to tell her story to the Nation? In your most vulnerable moments how do you know who to trust and what to believe? And if no one succeeds, where do you find the courage to move forward?

Ghost Light Theatricals, a new artistic venture founded by Joseph C. Walsh, is proud to announce its inaugural production, the Florida Premiere of Lilies: or the revival of a romantic drama, in partnership with Wild Oats Productions and Theatre South Playhouse. The play, written by award-winning Canadian playwright Michel Marc Bouchard and translated to English by Linda Gaboriau, will run at Theatre South Playhouse, September 15-24, 2022.
Simon Doucet, unjustly imprisoned for nearly forty years, invites his old friend Bishop Jean Bilodeau to a special theatrical event designed to inspire him to confess the events of a warm Autumn evening in 1912. Simon must know what happened in "...those minutes that cost me the last forty years of my life."
A passionate and engrossing masterpiece, Lilies employs the simple and singular elements of live theatre to tell a romantic and moving story of love, revenge and enlightenment.
Lilies won the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play and the Chalmers Award for Best Play in 1992. The film adaptation became an audience favourite at the 1996 San Francisco Gay & Lesbian Film Festival and won the Canadian Genie for Best Motion Picture of 1996.
Following acclaimed runs in London, Dublin and Brighton, this award-winning production comes to Orlando for its 15th anniversary.
The love story no-one ever told you...
