The provocative new play by Philadelphia playwright Kash Goins is directed by Broadway’s Amina Robinson.
The Arden Theatre Company kicks off 2019 with a play that could be ripped from today’s headlines. A jury of 6 has been deadlocked for over a week, struggling to decide what is “justifiable homicide.” The drama that unfolds is Kash Goins’ 74 SECONDS…TO JUDGMENT. The play runs at the Arcadia Stage from January 17 to March 3, 2019. Opening night is Wednesday, January 23 at 7PM.
“I first saw Kash Goins’ 74 SECONDS…TO JUDGMENT when his company premiered it as part of their residency here at the Arden last year. This is an exciting, surprising and timely new play, and I knew immediately that it needed to be seen by as many people as possible,” said Artistic Director Terrence Nolen. “We’re honored to be supporting this play in the next step of its development. I’m confident that 74 SECONDS… will engage audiences here at the Arden and at other theaters across the country in the coming years.”
This new staging, directed by Amina Robinson (Theatre Horizon’s THE COLOR PURPLE, Broadway’s MAMMA MIA and GODSPELL), explores the tension that unfolds when six jurors deliberate over a Philando Castile-like shooting of an unarmed black person by a white person. Featured in the cast are Julianna Zinkel, Kala Moses Baxter, Peter Bisgair, Dan Hodge, Travoye Joiner, and Kash Goins himself.
Single tickets to 74 SECONDS…are currently on sale at ardentheatre.org, or at the theatre’s box office. Service details are below.
