Write Act Repertory presents
WORLD PREMIERE OF SHOW ME A HERO
A LOVE STORY FOR THE AGES
The dynamic love story, SHOW ME A HERO, will premiere Sunday, Feb. 23, 2020 at Write Act Repertory's Brickhouse Theatre in North Hollywood. Written by Willard Manus and directed by Daniel E. Keough, the play dramatizes the relationship between the fearless Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci and the Greek freedom-fighter Alexander Panagoulis.
Fallaci and Panagoulis met in 1974, when she came down from Italy to interview him after the collapse of the military dictatorship in Greece. Panagoulis, who had been imprisoned and tortured for his actions against the Colonels, fell passionately in love with Fallaci, and vice versa. She was by his side when he once again risked his life to gather evidence against corrupt government leaders.
Produced by Write Act Repertory's Producing Artistic Director John A. Lant and Producer Anne Mesa, and starring Ilia Volok, Lisa Robins* and Rico Simonini*, SHOW ME A HERO will run through March 29, Saturday nights at 8 pm, Sunday matinees at 3 pm.
Willard Manus has had numerous plays produced in L.A., regionally and abroad, most recently Their Finest Hour: Churchill and Murrow, Bird Lives! Marlene, Prez: The Lester Young Story, Joe and Marilyn, and Frank and Ava. The latter won a best-play award at the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival and is now a motion picture. Manus is also a novelist ("Mott the Hoople") and a journalist. He lived for many years in Greece, serving as the Mediterranean Correspondent for the Financial Post (Canada).
Daniel E. Keough studied acting at the Goodman Theatre School in Chicago. Trained also in voice and dance, he performed in various musicals in L.A. He became a member of Theatre West where he directed and designed dozens of productions. He and Manus met at the Actors Studio Playwrights/Directors Unit.
