Black Box presents a Staged Reading of

(TEANECK, NJ) -- In association with The Estate of Edward Albee, Black Box presents All Over (1971) on Wednesday, June 26th, 2024 at Debonair Music Hall. Showtime is 7:30pm.  This is part of the company's exclusive staged reading series of all of Albee's plays. As described on the Edward Albee Society website, All Over takes place in a majestic townhouse as a great man lay dying.

Awaiting his demise are his wife, his mistress, his best friend, his feckless son and daughter, an elderly physician, and a nurse -- while newsmen eager for the latest updates clamour off stage. They who stand the deathwatch recollect past loves, rekindle old wars and await word... All Over was originally developed in 1967 as a short play entitled Death, the second half of a projected double bill with another play called Life (which later became Seascape).

The performance will feature BB mainstays and newcomers to the series including Deb Maclean, TC Tanis, Gloria Falzer, Michael Larson, Alison Miller, Ellen Krischer, and Robert Gladding with Ilana Schimmel and J Niles.  Following the show, join us for conversation with the cast, director Matt Okin, and Jakob Holder, Executive Director of The Edward F. Albee Foundation and Mr. Albee's longest serving assistant.

Debonair Music Hall is located at  1409 Queen Anne Road b/w State Street and Walraven Drive in Teaneck, NJ 07666.  Please reserve seats for FREE here.

"A lovely, poignant and deeply felt play." - The New York Times. "Done with brilliance... Fascinating, chilling, unsettling and oh so eloquent drama." - Newsday
