May 29 - June 17
A New Play by Jack Canfora
Directed by Michael Wilson
Set during Hollywood’s notorious Blacklist, FELLOW TRAVELERS examines the relationship between legendary theater artists Arthur Miller and Elia Kazan and their close connection to Marilyn Monroe. Kazan directed several Miller plays, including DEATH OF A SALESMAN, and Tennessee Williams dramas, including A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE. Miller also wrote the modern classics THE CRUCIBLE and A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE. FELLOW TRAVELERS explores how the politics of the McCarthy era affected their friendship and how their friendship affected their work.
