Seattle Public Theater’s ‘Ironbound’ Opens Tonight
Seattle Public Theater is running a new show that previews tonight and runs through April 15.
Here’s the info:
At a bus stop in a run-down New Jersey town, Darja, a Polish immigrant cleaning lady, is done talking about feelings; it’s time to talk money. Over the course of 20 years, and three relationships, Darja negotiates for her future with men who can offer her love or security, but never both. Award-winning playwright Martyna Majok’s IRONBOUND is a darkly funny, heartbreaking portrait of a woman for whom love is a luxury—and a liability—as she fights to survive in America.
Co-Artistic Director Kelly Kitchens selected IRONBOUND for Seattle Public Theater’s 2017-18 Season because it provides a complex, nuanced look at a working-class, immigrant single-mother and the battles she must fight, as well as the dreams she puts to rest just to scrape by. “Majok gives voice to those struggling to make it by another day,” says Kitchens. “This play is written by a female playwright and at its center is a fully realized, gritty, funny, flawed, hardworking, heartbreaking female protagonist. For all those reasons and more, I knew this was a story that Seattle Public Theater had to produce. The intimate setting of our theater will allow the audience to immerse themselves in this story; to sit at that bus stop with Darja as her life unfolds and unravels gives a face and a heart to the struggles of so many who are trapped by both the consequences of their own decisions and things simply out of their control.”
Award-winning local and regional actress Alexandra Tavares (The Seagull Project) will be stepping into the role of Darja for the production. She’s joined by actors Roy Stanton (Tommy), Arjun Pande (Maks), and Nathan Brockett (Vic), who round-out IRONBOUND’s four-person cast.
The production and design team for IRONBOUND includes Kelly Kitchens (director), Mike Dooly (assistant director), Julia Welch (scenic), Thorn Michaels (lighting), Rob Witmer (sound), Kelsey Rogers (props), Emily Cawley (dialect coach), and Ariel Bui (stage management). Sara Keats of The Umbrella Project will act as the dramaturg for the production.
