LAST TWO SHOWS of “Take Me Out” at DBS Arts Centre!
We’re now down to the LAST TWO SHOWS of “Take Me Out” from Tim Garner Productions at our current home at the DBS Arts Centre: Wednesday the 15th and Thursday the 16th. Tickets are available at SISTIC.
After we wrap up our run at the DBS Arts Centre, we move into the Alliance Francaise Theatre on Saturday the 18th, and we’re running there until 31 January. “Take Me Out” stars Juan Jackson as Darren Lemming, Hayden Tee as Mason Marzac, Tim Garner as Kippy Sunderstrom, Chris Bucko as Shane Mungitt, Paul Lucas as Skipper, Seth Adams as Toddy Koovitz, Kynan Francis as Jason Chenier, Johnny James as Davey Battle, Ren Robles as Rodriguez, Jejie Esguerra as Martinez, and Hiro Mizuhara as Takeshi Kawabata. It is directed by Paul Lucas.
Darren Lemming, the star centre fielder of the world champion New York Empires, is young, rich, famous, talented, handsome and so convinced of his popularity that when he casually announces he’s gay, he assumes the news will be readily accepted by everyone. It isn’t. Friends, fans and teammates react with ambivalence, and when the slipping Empires call up the young phenom Shane Mungitt to close their games, the ambivalence turns to violence. Angry, lonely, guilt-ridden and confused, Darren finds some unlikely solace in the form of friendship with his new business manager, Mason Marzac-a brilliant but repressed guy, who, as everyone around him copes with disenchantment, blooms in the ecstatic discovery of baseball.
