The College of Southern Maryland’s Theatre Company announces its cast for the Cause Theatre production of “The Empty Chair,” a play by Tim Kelly produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service.
The setting is a counseling center for teenagers suffering from substance abuse.
One of their peers, Robert, has just died from an overdose. The question on everyone’s mind is whether it was an accident or suicide.
CSM’s Cause Theatre offers several touring shows per semester, each bringing to light a different social issue, designed to be informative and challenging. Each is followed by a facilitated discussion. “The Empty Chair” presents the issue of suicide.
Performances are 8 p.m. Feb. 1 and 2 on the Leonardtown campus and 8 p.m.Feb. 7 to 9 on the La Plata campus.
The production is not suitable for younger audiences.
Tickets are $5.
