Authenticity Theater presents Samuel Hunter’s stunning play THE WHALE

January 18th-21st at 7 Stages Theater Backstage in Atlanta’s Little 5 Points

On the outskirts of Mormon Country, Idaho, a 600-pound recluse hides away in his apartment and slowly eats himself to death. Desperate to reconnect with his long-estranged daughter, he reaches out to her, only to find a viciously sharp-tongued and wildly unhappy teen. Big-hearted and fiercely funny, The Whale tells the story of a man’s last chance at redemption, and of finding beauty in the most unexpected places.

Starring (Clockwise from top left):  Sean Bryan (Charlie), Sarah Sutherland (Liz), Sasha Keefer (Mary), Ibrahim Sedebeh (Elder Thomas), Carson Hebblethwaite (Ellie).

Authenticity Theater is proud to partner with the Conyers Rockdale Council for the Arts to present Amy Herzog’s fabulous play 4000 MILES

March 14th – 17th at the CRCA Black Box Theater in Conyers, GA

Ninety-one year old political activist Vera Joseph’s solitary existence is entirely shaken when her grandson, Leo, appears at the door in the middle of the night Leo is fresh from  a cross-country bike ride, and assures Vera that he won’t stay long. Leo, however, is in  crisis, confused by an on-again, off-again romance, furious with his mother’s incessant meddling, and grieving deeply for his best friend and biking partner, Micah, who is recently deceased. While Leo seeks solace in his grandmother, Vera finds companionship in another person for the first time since the loss of her husband, Joe. A finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in Drama, Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles is a compassionate, intimate, and frequently funny play that examines the love of the family we can choose, the family we can’t, and the healing power of trust.
