BENNINGTON- A new version of the famed movie detectives Nick and Nora make their stage debut in “Water, Water, Everywhere ...” a new play that takes its inspiration from the local PFOA water contamination crisis and is the final production of Oldcastle Theatre Company’s 48th season. Opening on Friday, October 4, the play runs through Sunday, October 20.
The cast of seven features Halley Cinfarini, who appeared in last season’s Oldcastle production of “Proof” and Ed Rosini as the young reporters. Rosini was in a reading of the play at Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey earlier this year. Christine Decker, an Oldcastle artistic associate fresh from her portrayal of several characters in the recently closed “Judevine,”plays Katherine Dwyer, the veteran editor who mentors the young reporters while fending off the attacks from townspeople afraid the publicity about the water problems will hurt business.
“Water, Water, Everywhere ...” was written by Oldcastle’s Producing Artistic Director Eric Peterson. The play is the latest in a long line of plays presented by the theater that deal with issues affecting its local region.
