The ReGroup Ensemble will be joined by special guests for a fully staged script-in-hand presentation of Odets' only unpublished full length play - The Silent Partner.

Often referred to as a long-form version of Waiting for Lefty as it deals with striking workers, it is an entirely original and savagely poetic 3-Act tale that only Odets could tell.

In a NY Times Editorial, Group co-founder, Harold Clurman referred to the play as Odets' "most complete script. It had a great theme... No play of Odets had a wider scope, a greater variety of characters, or more exciting scenes." Once the officials of the twin cities of Apollo and Rising Sun start deputizing outlaws to help break up the strike, striking workers are arrested and murdered and their wives are attacked. With food and essentials cut off, the strikers and their families must protect themselves against the scab workers and vicious new law enforcers in the middle of one of their hottest summers

On the heels of ReGroup's five tremendously powerhouse productions in the past year, including 1931- and Success Story, as well as the recent big-budget Broadway production of Odets' Golden Boy and The Big Knife, this is sure to be one of the summer's hottest tickets

Featuring over 40 characters, the play features the talents of George Bartenieff, Maurya Scanlon, Mateo Prendergast, Matthew Giroveanu, Pete McElligott, Daniel Hainsworth, Shelley Valfer, Carly J. Bauer, Gian Carbonara, Kelsey Moore, Ave M. Lindon, Stephen Dexter, Jon McCormick, Tim Gilliss, Kevin Kolack, Kofi Boakye, Eli Bridges, Ryan Hyde and more. Directed by Allie Mulholland.
