Deep Dish to present two plays in repertory
The Deep Dish Theater will conclude its 15-year residency at University Place with two acclaimed plays in rotating repertory, opening Oct. 2 and playing through Nov. 14.
“Outside Mullingar,” the hit Broadway comedy by John Patrick Shanley, will play in conjunction with “The Cherry Orchard,” Anton Chekhov’s dramatic masterwork. The rotating repertory schedule will allow patrons the opportunity to see both shows in the same week or even on the same day.
“These two plays about life, love, and real estate have much to say to us and to each other,” said Artistic Director Paul Frellick.
“The Cherry Orchard,” Chekhov’s last play and perhaps his best known, follows the inhabitants of a Russian country estate in the early years of the last century. A cast of 15 and director Frellick will negotiate the playwright’s signature blend of comic and tragic strains, as Chekhov’s characters come to individual and mutual crossroads, all tied to an aging manor and the beautiful but unprofitable orchard that adorns it.
“Outside Mullingar” was nominated for a Tony Award as Best Play of the 2013-2014 Broadway season. A romantic comedy about two middle-aged Irish farmers trying desperately to hold on to their land and to keep from falling in love, the play calls to mind Shanley’s 1987 Oscar-winning film Moonstruck. It will be directed by Tony Lea, Deep Dish Resident Director, who has directed such memorable Deep Dish productions as Nathan the Wise, Superior Donuts, Good People, and most recently, A Kid Like Jake.
Performances begin Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday (matinee) at 2 p.m. Deep Dish is located in Chapel Hill’s University Mall, on Estes Drive and US 15-501.
