Description:
LEAD Productions, the creative arm of NYS3 – The Meisner Acting Conservatory for the Southeast in Asheville, North Carolina, is extremely proud to present Steven Diet’z play “Fiction” for a limited engagement at Forsythia Hall on February 7, 11, and 12th. Following the recent, successful one-night stand of Bill Bowers’ award-winning off-Broadway show “It Goes Without Saying” at Asheville Community Theatre, “Fiction” marks LEAD’s first original foray as a production company. The premise of this intellectually charged and sophisticated play is as follows: Linda and Michael Waterman are both successful writers, happily married to one another for twenty years. Michael is a successful author whose books have been made into blockbuster films. Linda is a professor of writing whose first book, At The Cape, earned her nationwide critical acclaim. Together, they form a feisty partnership that thrives on intellectual banter and subtle competition. All works well in the world of the Watermans until Linda is unexpectedly diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. The doctors give her only three weeks to live. Faced with this news, Linda offers Michael her diaries as a dying gift, asking him to read them after she is dead. In return, she asks Michael if she may read his. Although her dying wish makes Michael uncomfortable, he cannot deny her. Suddenly the boundaries between past and present, fact and fiction, trust and betrayal begin to break down. No life, as it turns out, is an open book. “Fiction” is being showcased at Forsythia Hall, an intimate, elegant venue near downtown Asheville. Directed by Richard Handy, the cast features local actors Deena Wade, Eamon Martin, and Val Rose, with musical design and live performance by Meg Mulhearn and Ross Gentry.
