Burning Coal Presents 'Art History Mystery'
Burning Coal presents David Edgar's "Pentecost," an "art history mystery." The play will run Jan. 25 through Feb. 11, at the Kennedy Theatre in the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts, 2 E. South Street, Raleigh.
"Pentecost" follows a British historian and his female Balkan counterpart as they race to prove that a long-forgotten fresco discovered on the wall of a dilapidated cathedral in her country is in fact one of the great art discoveries of the century. While sinister groups within the country jockey for ownership of the painting, wealthy international powerbrokers move in. But is the painting what it seems?
Jerome Davis, Burning Coal's artistic director, will direct the show. The cast includes New York City-based actors Tony Cormier and Vince Lamberti, along with Virginia-based actor Quinn Hawkesworth and Raleigh's Jenn Suchanec as well as Lynne Guglielmi Barbour, Robin Dorff, Ian Finley, Olivia Griego, Torrey Lawrence, Stephen LeTrent, Melissa Patterson, Greg Paul, Ashley Quinones, Ivy Shaw, Al Singer and Jason Weeks, Becca Johnson, and Amanda Watson.
Performances are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. (Jan. 25-27, Jan. 31 through Feb. 3 and Feb. 7 -10) and Sundays at 2 p.m. (Jan. 28, Feb. 4 and Feb. 11). Tickets are $16 or $14 for students, seniors and active military. Sunday, Jan. 28, at 2 p.m. is "Pay What You Can" day. Saturday, Jan. 27, at 7:30 p.m. is an audio-described performance.
