Rattlestick continues its 14th anniversary season with the World Premiere of Geometry of Fire, a new drama by Stephen Belber, directed by Lucie Tiberghien (The Pavilion). Performances begin Saturday, November 15th, 2008. The show will run through Sunday, December 14, 2008. In Geometry of Fire, Stephen Belber’s newest work, we find an investment banker-turned-Marine-sniper recently returned from Iraq and a Saudi-American who’s just looking for a little fun. In any other world, these two guys would be best friends. But when their lives collide in this one, each is forced to survive on the fly. Based on a true story. Geometry of Fire had a developmental production at New York Stage & Film in July 2007.
The cast of Geometry of Fire includes Jeffrey DeMunn (Stuff Happens, "The Green Mile"), Donnie Keshawarz (Tarzan, Taboo), Jennifer Mudge (Fault Lines, The Pavilion) and Kevin O’Donnell (Off Broadway debut). The creative team is comprised of Robin Vest (sets), Anne Kennedy (costumes), Peter West (lights), Broken Chord Collective (sound), Mary Robinette Kowal (props), Rick Sordelet (fight choreography) and Brian Smallwood (technical director).
Geometry of Fire has just been EXTENDED to December 21!!
In addition, The theater has also announced a series of post-performance talk backs to be moderated by Iraqi war veterans and officials from the Manhattan Vet Center.
