On Saturday, April 18, HRC Showcase Theatre will present the fourth staged reading of its 24th season. The play, Oblivion, by Paul Lewis, tells the tale of a divorced American doctor in her mid-fifties who travels to Montevideo, Uruguay, to search for the tango instructor with whom she fell in love 30 years before and for answers to the questions that have haunted her ever since.
Oblivion started as a short play. It was the winner of the “Audience Favorite” award at the Edmunds (Washington) Driftwood Players Fourth Annual Festival of Shorts and is slated for publication in Best Ten-Minute Plays of 2014 (Smith and Kraus). HRC Showcase Theatre will present the extended 90-minute version, which recently was given a full performance at the Wade James Theatre in Edmunds, Washington.
The company’s Artistic Director, Barbara Waldinger, will be joined by a cast that includes Lora Lee Ecobelli, Steve Hamm, Andrew Joffe, Daniela Malavé, and Miguel Angel Sierra. As always the reading will be followed by a reception and a lively talkback session with the actors, playwright, and director.
Oblivion, by Paul Lewis will be presented on April 18 at 7:30 pm in the auditorium of the First Reformed Church, 52 Green Street, Hudson, New York. For tickets and information visit hrc-showcasetheatre.com
