Description

This gripping and powerful drama tells the story of Kelly, a young therapist whose husband died in Iraq, and his twin brother who unexpectedly shows up at her doorstep one year later.  __

Dying City__ marks the directorial debut of Dallas Theater Center’s Brierley Resident Acting Company member Lee Trull. Lee previously starred in STT’s award winning and critically acclaimed production of Scapino. He also serves as an artistic consultant for STT.

 “Second Thought Theatre is among the most exciting and provocative theater companies in Dallas,” says Trull. “They are producing top notch, high quality work and I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to direct such an exciting play with this incredible cast.”

 __Dying City __will star STT Ensemble Member Rhett Henckel (STT’s Earth and Sky) in the dual role of twin brothers Craig and Peter.  Making her STT debut is Grace Heid in the role of Kelly.   

“Rhett Henckel and Grace Heid are fresh faces in the Dallas theatre community. And although many will know Lee’s work as a playwright and actor, audiences will get to see a new side of Lee as an artist with this show,” says STT Co-Artistic Director Chris LaBove. “This has been a pivotal year for Second Thought Theatre and Dying City is the perfect play to finish out our season on the right note.”
