Several sources are reporting that later in the fall, Sam Waterston (Law & Order) will be starring in the world premiere of "Have You Seen Us?" by South African playwright Athol Fughard. The play will be at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, CT., and will run from November 24 through December 20 on the theater's main stage.
The Hartford Courant reports that the play “is set in a Southern California strip-mall diner on Christmas Eve. Waterston will play Henry Parsons, a South African history professor "forced by a chance encounter to deal with the demons in his heart.”….The play is described by a theater spokesman: "Henry Parsons, a South African transplant comes in for his usual--a turkey sandwich and insulting banter with Adela, the Mexican-American waitress. The two creep towards a fragile understanding until Solly and Rachael, an eastern European Jewish couple sit down to eat. The couple's entrance forces Henry to a reckoning with his inward struggles and, for a moment, unites four lost souls."
Right now there isn’t any ticket information on the Long Wharf Theatre web site, but if you’re interesting in attending, check back at the site at a later date for box office information.
