Crime and Punishment in America: Two Intense One-Act Dramas

Gunston Theatre Two (directions)

Tickets

Cops by Terry Curtis Fox
Cops, the “Crime” segment of the evening, is one of the most shocking and heart-pounding shows TACT ever produced. From a story and dialogue originally roughed out by David Mamet came this real-time portrayal of a bloody hostage showdown between police and a fugitive in a gritty diner. Stephen Jarrett,who directed the first production for TACT, aims to top himself.

Hello Out There by William Saryoan
Then, after the gun smoke has cleared, the audience meets the lonely, jailed hero of the short masterpiece, Hello Out There, by one of TACT’s favorite neglected playwrights and among the U.S.’s greatest, William Saroyan. The “Punishment” chapter of the evening is the tale of an unlikely romance that evokes both hope and hopelessness. In the role of the Young Man, James Orleans Brown nabbed TACT’s first Helen Hayes nomination. Ellen Dempsey directs.
