Fitting with tradition of 20% Theatre Companys' sisters in New York and Chicago, 20% Theatre Company, Twin Cities, produced Sherry Kramer's two-woman show, David's Redhaired Death, as it's inaugural production. Despite the low-budget and intimate location, as well as only four performances over one weekend, the production was a hit!
Kramer's raw, non-linear full-length drama explores the obscure and unexpected relationship between two redheads, Jean and Marilyn, and its unfortunate downward spiral after the suicide of Jean's brother, David.
Starring Twin Cities actresses Kate Kennedy (Jean) and Colleen Somerville (Marilyn), David's Redhaired Death received preview press in Lavender, CityPages, and Pulse, leading to packed houses at nearly every performance! Thanks to all who supported our first production - helping us get on our feet, gain exposure, and earn enough from ticket sales to finalize a plan for our first full season 2006-2007!
