Quotidian Theatre's 30 October Staged Reading of O'Neill's "Hughie" & Silent Auction
One of the D.C.-area's most esteemed and beloved actors, Rick Foucheux, reprises his acclaimed portrayal of Erie Smith in American master playwright Eugene O'Neill's one-act "Hughie" in a benefit performance for QTC. Foucheux is joined by QTC favorites David Dubov and Steve LaRocque.
"Hughie" is set in the lobby of a small hotel on a West Side street in midtown New York during the summer of 1928. Small-time hustler Erie Smith (Foucheux) laments to the hotel's new night clerk Charlie Hughes (Dubov), how Smith's luck has gone bad since the death of Hughie, Hughes' predecessor. LaRocque, who played Hickey in "The Iceman Cometh" and James Tyrone in "A Long Day's Journey Into Night" at QTC, will read O'Neill's detailed stage directions.
Foucheux's Helen Hayes-nominated performance directed by the Washington Stage Guild's late director John MacDonald was hailed by the Washington Post as "haunting" and "beautifully acted."
Join Foucheux, Dubov, and LaRocque after the show for a drink and bite to eat in the lobby. And, come early to take part in the silent auctions with theatre ticket donations from Round House, Flying V, and QTC as well as spa services from Salon Fusion.
