Summer in Hell tells the disturbing tale of cousins Milton and Patricia, who, behind the closed doors of their family’s summer estate, are enjoying a less than savory relationship. Their secret is threatened when a local boy stops by for an impromptu visit, setting into motion a battle royale of treachery and deceit.
The cast will feature (in alphabetical order) Dan Gordon, Amy K. Harmon, Tyler Jenich, and Melissa Powell. The set design is by Sarah Krainin, lighting design is by Ian Garrett, costume design is by Fabiana Pigna, and Joseph L. Roberts is the production stage manager.
Summer in Hell is being produced for Brimmer Street Theatre Company by Michael Bulger, along with associate producer Marie Lively. Summer in Hell, which is the final production of BSTC’s 2010 season, was developed as part of the 2009 Brimmer Street ‘Blueprint Series.’
