MOTORTOWN opening March 18 in the Black Box Theatre

LCC Theatre presents MOTORTOWN, Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens’ complex and provocative look at the human costs of war, directed by Andy Callis. It is a powerful and challenging play, violent and disturbing, for adult audiences only. Performances are 8 p.m. March 18-19 and 25-26 in the Black Box Theatre. Immediately following the March 18th opening performance will be a talkback with the cast, director, and Andrew Cosgrove, LCC’s Director of Veteran and Military Affairs, and Laura E. Swanson, LCC alumnus and MSU graduate who is directing “Break The Chain,” a documentary about human trafficking. MOTORTOWN follows Danny upon his return his deployment in Basra to Dagenham, England – the “motortown” of the title. Rejected by an old flame and lured by a shady dealer, Danny is damaged and damages in turn on a brutal road trip through a landscape littered with class and racial animosity, consumption and abandonment, imprisonment and escape. The cast of LCC students and alumni give fierce and brave performances featuring Michael Boxleitner as Danny, Heath Sartorius as Lee (Danny’s brother), Anna Raymo as Marley (Danny’s former girlfriend), Hunter Folleth as Tom (a gun dealer), Todd Heywood as Paul (a dealer of other sorts), Hannah Janelle Price as Jade (a young teen), and Jesse Frawley and Hannah Feuka (married couple Justin and Helen). Admission is $10 ($5 students) at the door.
