Lookingglass Theatre announces cast for The North China Lover
Aug 6, 2013

The North China LoverKicking off its 26th Season, Lookingglass Theatre Company presents the World Premiere of Marguerite Duras' The North China Lover, adapted and directed by Ensemble Member Heidi Stillman. The North China Lover runs September 25 - October 4, 2013 at Lookingglass Theatre Company, located inside Chicago's historic Water Tower Water Works, 821 N. Michigan Ave. at Pearson.

The cast includes: Ensemble member Tracy Walsh (Woman in Red); Walter Owen Briggs (Pierre), Amy J. Carle (Mother), Tim Chiou (The Lover), Deanna Dunagan (M), Rae Gray (The Child), JJ Phillips (Paolo) and Allison Torem (Helene).

You never forget your first lover. The affair plays like a moving picture over and over in your mind: passionate, consuming, secret, taboo.

Fade in: the seamy French Quarter of Southern Indochina in the 1930s where the 14-year-old impoverished schoolgirl who will someday be French novelist Marguerite Duras is about to meet and captivate a wealthy 27-year-old Chinese aristocrat.

With the older Duras as our guide, The North China Lover transports us on a provocative and haunting journey of awakening and sacrifice, revealing the delicate and indelible effect of life on art.

The creative team for The North China Lover includes: Ensemble member Daniel Ostling (Scenic/lighting), Ana Kuzmanic (Costumes), Artistic Associate Rick Sims (Sound), Stephen Sorenson (Associate Lighting Designer), Maria DeFabo (Properties), Sheila Schmidt (Stage Manager) and Amanda Weener (Assistant Stage Manager).
