BORDERLANDS THEATER TO PRESENT THE WORLD PREMIERE OF THE PLAY TOPSY TURVY MOUSE BY PETER GIL-SHERIDAN, FEBRUARY 14-MARCH 2, AT THE TEMPLE OF MUSIC AND ART CABARET THEATRE, 330 S. SCOTT AVENUE.
Winner of the Smith Prize.
When a disturbing photograph of Richie's parents' service in Iraq is posted to his locker, his life begins to unravel. Richie tries to uncover the truth of his family’s history with the help of his friend Amit and a digital camera. Soon, seemingly innocent role-playing catapults Richie and Amit into the center of a local murder mystery. Topsy Turvey Mouse reveals the connection between violence and abuse in our daily lives and the U.S. military incarcerations and torture in today's headlines. .
Directed by Barclay Goldsmith. Cast includes: Dwayne Palmer, Jacob Brown, Annabelle Nunez, Noel Chester, Sarah MacMillian, Charlie Solis and Anita Smith-Etheridge.
