What if you had to invite everyone you know to witness the most painful moment of your life? "Undo" imagines a world where divorce involves a formal ritual of division that goes far beyond splitting assets and signing papers.
"Undo" is the first full-length play from local playwright, actor and dramaturg Holly Arsenault. Arsenault's short play "24 Pictures of a Pilot" was produced at Live Girls! Theatre, and went on to be a finalist for the Heideman Award at the National Ten-Minute Play Contest at Actors' Theatre of Louisville. It was published in Rain City Projects' Manifesto Series V.2: Vivid Impact, and called "a masterful example of narrative's power to allure, betray, and seduce us."
The world premiere production of "Undo" is directed by Erin Kraft, whose recent credits include: Paul Mullin's Ballard House Duet for Custom Made Plays/Washington Ensemble Theatre, Joanna Horowitzs 100 Heartbreaks for Bumbershoot, Emily Schwends Bloom for Live Girls! Theatre, and Kelly Kitchens adaptation of The Secret Garden with Book-It All Over. Kraft is a member of the artistic staff at Seattle Repertory Theatre.
The cast of "Undo" is: Sydney Andrews (Seattle Shakespeare Company), Ashton Hyman (Seattle Repertory Theatre), Marty Mukhalian (Seattle Shakespeare Company), Nick Edwards (Book-It Repertory Theater), Samantha Leeds (Macha Monkey), Zoey Belyea (upstart crow), Barbara Lindsay, Mark Waldstein (Balagan), Jillian Vashro (Annex Theatre), Tom Fraser (Catapult Theatre), Amy Hill (Seattle Shakespeare Company), and introducing Ian O'Malley as The Boy with the Glass.
