Strong cast leads revival of powerful drama at 59E59 Theaters
A compelling revival of the THE CLEARING by Helen Edmundson opened at 59E59 Theaters on October 11 for a limited run through October 26, 2016. The play effectively directed by Pamela Moller Kareman is set against Oliver Cromwell’s brutal campaign to force Catholics out of Ireland while invoking a story of deceit, love, and passion.
Robert, an English aristocrat, and his free-spirited Irish wife Maddy find their marriage consumed by the treacherous political atmosphere in Ireland that threatens to separate them. Robert is confronted with an impossible dilemma – ensure his own economic prosperity by betraying his wife and child, or risk expulsion? As Robert and Maddy, Jakob von Eichel and Quinn Cassavale play the conflicted lovers in the absorbing drama and lead a talented cast that includes Hamish Allan-Headley, Lauren Currie Lewis, David Licht, Neal Mayer, Ron Sims, and Tessa Zugmeyer.
The Clearing is now playing at 59E59 Theaters, 59 East 59th Street between Park and Madison Avenues, through October 26 on Tuesdays through Sundays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 3:30 PM. To purchase tickets call Ticket Central at 212-2794200 or go to www.59e59.org.
