I found it very interesting! The dialogue was extremely articulate but not over your head. It was a bit dark but I loved it. The nudity was definitely necessary in order to really get into what this was about. Actors were awesome!

This is a gem. If you get a chance, go see it. Don't think too much about it, just go. As others have said, the play is dark and contains nudity and sexual violence. I don't usually go for that kind of entertainment. Yet the amazing cast combined...continued

Quotes & Highlights

Read an "interview ":http://bombsite.com/issues/95/articles/2819with playwright Adam Rapp.

Description

Escaping their lives in Manhattan, former college buddies Matt and Davis take off to the Netherlands and find themselves thrown into a bizarre love triangle with a beautiful young prostitute named Christina. But the romance they find in Europe is eventually overshadowed by the truth they discover at home.

Red Light Winter features a talented cast lead by STT Ensemble Member and Artist in Residence Drew Wall as Matt. Alex Organ is making his Second Thought Theatre debut as Davis. Organ recently starred in Dallas Theater Center’s production of A Christmas Carol_. Natalie Young (_Edmond, Some Girls) will play Christina.

Directing for his first time with Second Thought is award-winning director, designer and actor Regan Adair. Adair returns to the STT family after playing the title role in the critically acclaimed and award-winning production of _Edmond _by David Mamet. Adair (set and costumes) will also head up the design team which includes Matt Gray (sound), Drew Wall (properties) and Jason Foster (lights.)

A story as intimate and sexually charged as Red Light Winter requires unique handling from both playwright and director. “When I first read this play, I was immediately struck by its tragic beauty and brutal honesty,” says Adair. “We see sexuality portrayed in film all the time. But as an audience, we’re removed. In Red Light Winter, Rapp forces us to experience the pain, the sexuality and the intimacy firsthand. Everything is exposed, and there’s nothing to hide behind. It’s really quite beautiful.”

“At its heart, this play is an exploration of the complexities, mysteries and moral ambiguities implicit within the concepts of love and friendship,” says Adair. “The people we care about the most can sometimes be our worst enemies. And painful as it may be, love is often unrequited. But in this play, much like in life, there’s a glimmer of hope: that through our pain, we can learn who we are, pick ourselves up and get on with the business of life…living.”

Adair returns to Dallas and the STT stage after recently moving to New York City to continue to pursue a life in the theater.

“I’m thrilled about the opportunities ahead of me,” says Adair. “But Dallas is my theatrical home. I came into my own as an artist here. And I’m thrilled that STT has given me this chance to give a farewell performance.”
