Eclipse Theatre’s 2010 Season:

Exploring the works of Arthur Miller

WHO/WHAT: Eclipse Theatre concludes its One Playwright-One Season mission with the third of three plays by one of America’s most prolific writers: Arthur Miller.  Arthur Miller’s personal drama A Memory of Two Mondays directed by Ensemble Member Steven Fedoruk, will be the final production of the Arthur Miller season.

Set in a 1930s Brooklyn automobile parts warehouse with a strong cast of richly detailed characters, Miller draws on his own personal experience to explore the monotonous struggle to make a living and the dreams of a young man yearning for a college education in the midst of people stumbling through life in a haze of hopelessness and despondency.

The show runs approximately ninety minutes with no intermission. Post-show discussions with the cast and crew will be held following all Sunday matinees except opening and closing weekends (free with paid ticket).
