Olney Theatre Presents Rancho Mirage (Video)
Olney Theatre presents the National New Play Network (NNPN) Rolling World premiere of Steven Dietz’s Rancho Mirage now through Oct. 20. Tickets start at $32.50 and may be purchased online at Olney Theatre Center or by contacting the Box Office at 301.924.3400. Olney Theatre is located at 2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Road in Olney.
Olney Theatre Center received a $21,000 grant from the Edgerton Foundation New American Play Awards for this production. The grant gives new plays in development an extended rehearsal period for the entire creative team, including the playwright.
Rancho Mirage is a bitingly funny black comedy about what happens when the fictions that hold our lives together are exposed. In Steven Dietz’s look into the psyche of 2013 America — where affluence is perhaps our greatest mirage — three couples, long-time friends, find themselves at a dinner party where everyone finally decides to tell the truth.
Rancho Mirage is Artistic Director Jason Loewith’s debut as director at Olney Theatre Center.
