Salem Theatre Company’s Music & More Series will bring The Mugford Street Players production of Georgette Beck’s adult fable Harry to the STC Theater, 90 Lafayette Street in Salem, for two weekends in November. Ms. Beck, a Marblehead resident, is an actor, director, novelist and award-winning playwright whose latest novel, The Song of Sylvia Square was released just last month.
In Harry, Ms. Beck introduces us to a streetwise, clever and perpetually surviving tomcat - the title’s namesake - who has a few problems. He doesn’t know who he is, what he is or why he does that stuff he does... Is it sheer accident or homicidal mayhem? A cross between Cary Grant and Bagheera from The Jungle Book, Harry embarks on a set of adventures that lead him to an astonishing end-game discovery.
The production has a two-week run from November 8 – 17, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m. and is directed by Kristine Burke of Salem. The play features Dave Rich, Stephen Cooper and Anne Roberts of Marblehead, Brian Casey, Bob Karish and Anne O'Neill of Salem, Kristin Wishoski of Wakefield, Chris Hansen of Swampscott, Sarah Carlin of Beverly and Lauren Ashly Suchecki of Gloucester. Production staff and designers include Emma Cavaliere, Jean Fogle, John Fogle and Gregory Mancusi-Ungaro.
