ON BORROWED TIME
By Paul Osborn
Directed by Joel Grey
Live Event: Act 1 on Wed, Aug 5 and Act 2 with Q&A on Thurs, Aug 6 at 7:00PM EDT
Featuring a star-filled cast, under the direction of Tony-Award winner Joel Grey, Two River Theater will revisit the classic 1939 play, On Borrowed Time, which opened their 2013 season. This rarely-produced American masterpiece is a magical fantasy about the love between a little boy and his Gramps. When Death himself pays them a visit in the form of a man named Mr. Brink, Gramps outwits him—trapping Brink in a tree and refusing to let him down. Confirmed cast members to date include: Blair Brown, Michael Cumpsty, Bill Irwin, Bebe Neuwirth, Phillipa Soo, Steven Skybell and Sam Waterston. Oakes Fegley will reprise his Two River debut as Pud, the role which launched Joel Grey’s theatrical career at the Cleveland Playhouse as a nine-year-old boy.
