Three Viewings Opens at TART
Performances Run Through November 7
A funeral director, a thief and a widow – these are the characters you’ll meet in Three Viewings, the inaugural play of Tacoma’s newest theater, Tacoma Actors Repertory Theatre (TART for short). Three Viewings was written by renowned playwright and screenwriter Jeffrey Hatcher. A writer who enjoys mystery, Hatcher is just the playwright for the Halloween season. He wrote the screenplay for the recently released film Mr. Holmes, starring Ian McKellan, and the book for the brand new musical theater mystery Glensheen, which just opened at the Great American History Theatre, in St. Paul, MN.
About the Play
Through three intertwining monologues Three Viewings explores themes of love and death and obsession and. Deftly told with equal measures of humor and pathos, the monologues paint a picture of three people each coming to terms with what it means to be the one left behind. Variety described the monologues as “Beautifully spun tales.” New York Magazine called the play “essential viewing.”
Three Viewings is directed by TART Artistic Director Jen Tidwell and features area actors Richard Arum, Hollis Heron, and Gretchen Douma as the funeral director, the thief and the widow, respectively. Three Viewings runs through November 7 on a rotating schedule with the musical comedy [title of show] which opens on October 14.
