Albright troupe to stage 'Beautiful Thing'
Submitted by Albright Theatre Company
Albright Theatre Company presents Jonathan Harvey's "Beautiful Thing" at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays, through May 11, on the third floor of the Batavia Government Center, 100 N. Island Ave. in Batavia.
The 1993 British play is set in Southeast London. Teenage boys Jamie and Ste (short for Steve) are neighbors in a working-class housing project. Neither has an ideal home life — Jamie's mother, Sandra, covers her pain with scathing humor and Ste's father and brother abuse him emotionally and physically.
When Jamie's feelings for Ste become romantic the two begin a tentative relationship — leaving each young boy a little less alone in the world.
The cast includes: Erin Cauley as Sandra; Tim Vogel as Jamie; Michael Sherry as Ste; Kasia Karbarz as Leah; Tony Pellegrino as Tony; and Jon Witt as Ronnie. The director is JP Quirk, with stage manager Kristen Duerdoth and producer Jeannine Collins.
The play is for mature audiences, with adult language, suggestive dialogue and violence. Tickets are $13 and $10 for students and seniors. Reservations are suggested by calling (630) 406-8838. Visit albrighttheatre.com.
One dollar from each ticket sale for "Beautiful Thing" will be donated to The Trevor Project, an organization that is dedicated to providing support and resources to LGBTQ youth.
