Driftwood Theatre proudly announces the cast for its upcoming Play in a Pub reading of Alicia Richardson’s Solve for X, May 1 at the Social Capital Theatre (154 Danforth Avenue, Toronto), 7:30pm.
Bringing Ms. Richardson’s script to life over a few good pints will be Lovell Adams Gray (A Few Good Men, Theatre Aquarius; Judas Noir, BDB Productions/Obsidian), Natasha Mumba (School Girls: The African Mean Girls Play, Obsidian Theatre; Henry V, Dracula, Middletown; Shaw Festival; Hamlet, Driftwood), Leighton Alexander Williams (Dixon Road, Judas Noir, Obsidian Theatre) and Cliff Saunders (The Cherry Orchard, Modern Times Theatre; The Heir Apparent, Chicago Shakespeare; Les Misérables, Broadway).
Solve for X tells the story of Maxine (Mumba) trapped inside the mind of Cooper (Adams-Gray) and tasked by the mysterious maintenance worker (Saunders) of Cooper’s brain to unravel the mystery of a horrible crime hidden within the memories of Cooper’s relationship to his best friend TJ (Williams).
Solve for X was originally created and staged for Driftwood’s 24-hour play-creation festival Trafalgar 24 on March 9, 2018. Ms. Richardson was subsequently provided with a five-week paid residency to develop her work.
