December 5 - December 6, 2016

by Cory Hinkle
directed by Lila Rachel Becker

Sloane wants to write a book about her neighbors, but watching them is more fun.

Monday, December 5 at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Tuesday, December 6 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Tim Faulkner Gallery
1512 Portland Avenue

Run time: 55 minutes
There will be no intermission.

Sloane spends most of her time watching her neighbors. She’s supposed to be writing a book about them—but voyeurism is more fun. When a surprise visit from her sister dredges up their family’s past, Sloane tries to use her work to avoid difficult truths. But how can she write about togetherness and community when she’s distant even from herself? Frank, funny, and bittersweet, Golden is a highly theatrical celebration of the beauty of human connection.

Audience Advisory: Contains strong language and sexual content.

While the Time Faulkner Gallery is open to all ages, this event is only available to patrons 21 years or older as the bar will be open during each performance. IDs will be checked prior to entering the performance.

About the New Play Project

Aligning with Actors Theatre’s dedication to producing new work, the New Play Project is a series of one-act plays developed in the spirit of fostering relationships with emerging playwrights while giving members of the Professional Training Company space to interact with new work. This season, Actors Theatre has commissioned three playwrights—Emily Feldman, A. Rey Pamatmat, and Cory Hinkle—to write three one-act plays for the series. Throughout the development of each new play, the playwright works closely with a cast of acting apprentices to create a story in collaboration with directing and literary apprentices. These plays are then performed in unique performance spaces at Actors Theatre or throughout the community.

About the Professional Training Company

The Professional Training Company (formerly the Apprentice/Intern Company) is one of the cornerstones of Actors Theatre’s commitment to education.  A diverse company of 40 young theatre professionals participate in a full-immersion program focused on practical, experiential training designed to ease the transition into a professional career.

Now in its 45th year, and functioning as a theatre company with its own season focusing entirely on new works, the Professional Training Company is a national leader in alternative theatre training. Its alumni are working on staff and on-stage in leading theatres across the country (Playwrights Horizons, Steppenwolf Theatre Company, Goodman Theatre, Victory Gardens Theater, the Guthrie Theater, Hartford Stage, Geva Theatre Center, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, and Denver Center for the Performing Arts, among many others) and are often invited back home to Actors Theatre. Last season, 60 former apprentices worked at Actors Theatre in some capacity.  Additionally, our acting alumni appear regularly on television (How to Get Away with Murder, Gotham, The Americans, Elementary, Person of Interest, Master of None, Broad City, and Orange is the New Black, among many others).
