Arena Players Second Stage Theatre Presents "The Mercy Seat"
In a time of national tragedy, the world changes overnight. On September 2001, Ben Harcourt finds himself in the downtown apartment of his lover, Abby Prescott - who also happens to be his boss. His endlessly ringing cell phone haunts their conversation as Ben and Abby explore the choices now available to them in an existence different from the one they knew just the day before. Will Ben let his family know he's alive or will he and Abby take this chance to create a new life for themselves?
The Mercy Seat opens Friday, September 16 and plays through Sunday October 9. Performances are at 9:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 3:00 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $18 (Friday and Sunday) and $22 (Saturday).
Arena Players Second Stage Theatre is located at 294 Route 109 in East Farmingdale, and is accessible to the handicapped. For reservations or further information, phone 516.293.0674 or visit www.arenaplayers.org.
