PLAYER KING PRODUCTIONS
ANNOUNCES LOS ANGELES PREMIERE OF CORONADO
BY ACCLAIMED MYSTERY WRITER DENNIS LEHANE
BEGINS MARCH 4
AT THE HOLDING COMPANY IN SILVERLAKE
FOR 12 PERFORMANCES ONLY
Player King Productions has announced the Los Angeles premiere of Coronado by acclaimed mystery writer Dennis Lehane, directed by Drew Shirley, for 12 performances only beginning Sunday, March 4 and running through March 27. Opening night is Monday, March 5 at 8:00, at The Holding Company in Silverlake.
Coronado is the only play written by mystery writer Dennis Lehane (perhaps best known for the screenplays for Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone, and Shutter Island). It is a modern-day Greek tragedy which follows three intertwining tales: a recently freed inmate and his father waging a lethal battle of wits while searching for a missing woman and a stolen diamond; a psychiatrist and his patient having an illicit affair; and a woman and her lover plotting the murder of the woman’s husband. Set in a southwestern American town, Coronado is a thriller exploring the dark side of the human spirit and what one is willing to do for love, money and redemption.
Originally from Kansas City, Kansas, director Drew Shirley’s most recent credits include the Los Angeles Theatre Ensemble’s much acclaimed production of Comedy of Errors at the Powerhouse Theatre in Santa Monica, as well as an independent production of The Tempest that opened on Theatre Row earlier this year. The cast of Coronado will feature (in alphabetical order) Cy Brown, Sam Dahl, Hannah Hines, Brahm Gallagher, Gina Lohman, Amelia Jane Murphy, Alex Oliver, Shawn Parsons, David Preston, Emily Elizabeth, and Mark Schroeder. The scenic design is by Alex Choate, the lighting and projection design is by Matt Richter, costume design is by Adriana Lambarri, and sound design is by Patrick Janssen. Sarah Harburg-Petrich is the stage manager, and Ty Mayberry produces for Player King Productions.
Player King Productions is dedicated to honoring the art of theatre by challenging its very nature. Breaking down boundaries between audiences and the action, and performing in unconventional spaces, Player King hopes to develop a new generation of vested theatregoers.
Coronado will play one lower-priced preview performance on Sunday, March 4 at 8pm, and opening night is set for Monday, March 5 at 8:00. The regular performance schedule is Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at 8pm through March 27 only. Ticket prices (all general admission) are $15 for the preview, and $20 for opening night and all regular performances. To purchase tickets, go to www.brownpapertickets.com/event/226614, or reserve by phone at (800) 838-3006. For more information, visit www.playerkingproductions.com.
