Goodman Theatre has announced the cast for TWILIGHT BOWL by Pulitzer Prize finalist Rebecca Gilman — her ninth production and seventh World Premiere with the company. Set in a rural Wisconsin bowling alley, the coming-of-age story focuses on six women struggling to define their own version of success. Erica Weiss directs the ensemble cast, all of whom reprise their roles from the developmental production in the Goodman’s 2017 New Stages Festival.
The cast features Hayley Burgess (Clarice), Heather Chrisler (Jaycee), Angela Morris (Maddy), Becca Savoy (Sam), Mary Taylor (Brielle) and Anne E. Thompson (Sharlene). The creative team includes Regina Garcia (Set), Cat Wilson (Lighting), Izumi Inaba (Costumes) and Victoria Deiorio (Sound).
“I’m thrilled to have the rare opportunity to continue the life of a new play with the actors who developed the roles in New Stages—and even more excited to feature all these women in their Goodman debuts,” said Weiss. “They are a collective force of girl power in the truest, non-Spice Girls sense of the term.”
TWILIGHT BOWL runs February 8 – March 10. For more information visit http://www.GoodmanTheatre.org.
