This November, Tableau D’Hôte Theatre will be holding auditions for male-identifying actors for their upcoming bilingual production of Marc Prescott’s Encore, directed by Liz Valdez
While still in the throes of young love, a couple pledge to return to the site of their first meeting ever year in order to reenact word-for-word their faithful encounter. What begins as an exercise to celebrate their love shifts into a daunting task that cannot keep up with the many obstacles that life, marriage, and family attract.
How do we love? Or rather, how don’t we love? Marc Prescott’s text is unapologetically tender, sending us straight to the heart of great love: from fluttering hearts, to subtle betrayals, to the uncertainty of sudden loneliness. Encore blends comedy, poetry and insight in a manner that is a far cry from the cynicism of our time. It dares to speak of true feelings, the ones that shake us to our core.
Rehearsals begin April 15th, 2019
Runs at MainLine Theatre (MiniMain): May 8th through 19th, 2019
