After the last year success of The Cherry Orchard Sequel, UniArt Theatre Company presents a new play, written and directed by OBIE award winner Nic Ularu.
Previews begin on Thursday, April 23, 2009 and the official opening will be on Friday, April 24, 2009 at the La MaMa - First Floor. The shows run through May 10.
"The System" tries to dissect in a humorous way the condition of the artist and the act of creation of a special theatre piece. If "life is theatre and theatre is life", THE SYSTEM gives a glimpse of life in theatre, questioning present day political life, audience tastes, condition of the theatre artist and manipulation through the media.
The Cast of THE SYSTEM features: Richard Jennings*, John Patrick Driscoll*, Charles Whetzel, Andrew Reilly*, Elisabeth "EG" Heard, Patrick Kelly and Paul Kaufmann
