Sacred Heart University to Stage HEADS, by E.M. Lewis
"Heads," the story of four people - an American engineer, a British embassy employee, a network journalist, and a freelance photographer, who are thrown together when they are taken hostage during the early years of the war in Iraq, opens in New York at The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row, for a limited run, September 11-20, 2015 (410 West 42nd Street). "Heads" was written by playwright and librettist E.M. Lewis, whose works have been produced worldwide. She is the recipient of numerous awards including one for "Heads", the 2008 Primus Prize, honoring emerging women theatre artists. The play was first performed on stage in Los Angeles at the Blank Theatre Company and was a critical success. The Los Angeles Times said at the time that it was, "so topical that it feels as if the play was co-written by CNN." And Edward Albee called it "provocative and wonderfully threatening." Now the production will have a new incarnation in the hands of a group of students, who are part of the newly minted Theatre Arts undergraduate degree program at Sacred Heart University. Tony-nominated Broadway producer Jerry Goehring, the creator and Artistic Director of the Theatre Arts Program, is using his professional theatrical experience, to build a unique program that offers students the opportunity to work on productions in a non-academic environment. As such, Sacred Heart University's Theatre Arts Program has teamed with its in-residence professional company, Connecticut Children's Theatre, Inc. (CCT, Inc.) to fund and produce a limited run of "Heads."
