The Grand Marais Playhouse production of "Dix Tableau," directed by Susan Kelnberger, opened on Thursday, August 22, and will run through September 1. (Click on audio mp3 above to hear a short feature about the production.)
"Dix Tableau" is the story of a friendship between two women in their sixties, played out over the course of ten years, with each year representing another reunion for Beverly Duggins and Addie Spool, two participants in a series of annual "tableaux" sponsored by the Museum of Dix, in a small city in the South.
Dix Tableaux was commissioned by the Community Theatre League in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, as part of author Mark Dunn's long association with the theatre through his playwright's residency there. It premiered on January 21, 2005.
