The full cast and crew have been announced for Dandelion Theatre’s world premiere of BURY ME, by Chicago-based playwright Brynne Frauenhoffer.
Directed by Ben Kaye, the cast includes Gabriela Diaz and David Stobbe as Michelle and Josh, K. Holland as half-sibling Ru, Allison McCorkle as Josh’s mother Christy, Scott Olson as stepfather Mark, and Evey Reidy as the high school friend Amy.
The production team includes Melissa Perkins (Costume Designer), Michelle E. Benda (Lighting Designer), Kaycee Filson (Properties Designer), Zoe Benditt (Dramaturg), Nina D’Angier (Scenic Designer), Emily Anderson (Sound Designer), Christina Casano (Assistant Director) and Devonte Washington (Stage Manager).
Expecting parents Josh and Michelle visit Josh’s mother, his ailing stepfather, and his outspoken half-sibling Ru in Josh’s small Missouri hometown, where Ru’s pro-Choice activism is causing a stir. Events including a chance encounter with his high school crush, soon move questions of life and death from the philosophical to the practical.
BURY ME will run at Rivendell Theatre, 5779 N. Ridge, Chicago, July 6 – 28. For more information visit dandeliontheatre.com.
