Strangeloop Theatre presents 'Living Quarters'
Directed by company member Thomas Murray

Subtitled 'After Hippolytus' and first produced by Dublin's Abbey Theatre in 1977, "Living Quarters" recasts the mythology of Theseus, Hippolytus, and Phaedra into an isolated Donegal homestead. Commandant Frank Butler returns home to Ireland as a hero after saving nine United Nations peacekeepers from enemy fire during a siege in the Middle East. Reunited to celebrate Frank's triumph are three daughters and a son by his first marriage and the young wife Frank married days before his deployment. But the revelation of secrets kept while Frank was away threatens to divide the Butler house forever.

A thrilling memory play led by a seemingly impartial narrator-as-referee, "Living Quarters" follows the Butlers' attempts to reconstruct the events leading to their "point of no return" and wrestle with the desire to alter their chosen courses.

Featuring: Kathryn Bartholomew, Shannon Bracken, Ross Compton, James Houton, Kelley Minneci, Martin Monahan, Jillian Rafa, Danni Smith and Paul Tinsley.

With scenic design by Glen Anderson, costumes and props by D.J. Reed, lighting by Leigh Barrett and sound by Jesus Contreras.  Dialect coach is Kate Jordan, Assistant Director is Zack Florent, and Stage Manager is Lauren Pace.
