The Lover and The Problem


My next acting project with theatre KAPOW: I'll be playing Sarah in The Lover and the Wife in The Problem.


theatre KAPOW opens their second season with the titillating pairing of The Lover by Harold Pinter and The Problem by A.R. Gurney Jr. at the Stockbridge Theatre in Derry, NH. The shows are directed by Matthew Cahoon and I play opposite Brian Kennedy.


Pinter’s The Lover is about a middle class couple who live a secluded life in a respectable English town. The play, written in 1962, explores the repercussions when dull domesticity and sexual fantasy collide. A.R. Gurney’s The Problem is a quite funny American take on a similar theme and written just a few years later in 1969. A husband and wife are caught in a complicated and perverse spiral of sexual fantasies that enable them to keep their marriage alive.


It is an interesting pairing of scripts and will make for a truly "tKAPOW" evening.

Performances are Friday, September 11 at 7:30 pm and Saturday September 12 at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm at the Stockbridge Theatre in Derry, NH. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Stockbridge Theatre Box Office at (603) 437-5210, or online at http://www.tkapow.com/.
