Women’s Theater Company Presents World
Premier Drama, Person of Interest
Performances at the Parsippany Playhouse from March 15-30
(Parsippany, NJ) February 20, 2013 — Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Women’s Theater Company is proud to announce the world premier, Person of Interest, a compelling drama written by New Jersey playwright Jewel Seehaus-Fisher and directed by the company’s executive director and producer, Barbara Krajkowski. The 90-minute, six character play focuses on bio-ethics and is based on historical evidence with names and places changed.
Person of Interest first begins several weeks after the tragedy of 9/11 when the world as we knew it changed. War was no longer defined by countries battling one another, but by differing fundamental ideological views using terroristic measures. The idea to write Person of Interest was sparked by a friend of Playwright Jewel Seehaus-Fisher, two-time recipient for the Individual Artist Fellowship, NJ State Council on Arts.
The play stars Robin Thomas* (of Hamburg, NJ) as Charlotte Hauser, Scott McGowan* (of Maplewood, NJ) as Bob Hauser, Meridith Johnson* (of Maplewood, NJ) as FBI agent Jane Willis, Craig Zimmerman (of Rockaway, NJ) as Dr. Harry Rabin, Katie Mitchell (of Parsippany, NJ) as Lynn Hauser and Steve Easterling (of Madison, NJ) as Congressman Carr. *denotes members of Actors Equity Association
