LaPorte, Indiana (Feb. 15, 2012) – LaPorte Little Theatre Club's production of Down the Road by Lee Blessing focuses on a convicted serial killer and the husband and wife team hired to help him write an account of his terrible crimes. As weeks of interviews produce haunting revelations, the couple grows more uncertain of the ethics of their project. Are they helping readers assimilate violent crime as if they are consuming any other product of our society? Are they turning a murderer into a celebrity?
This intense, adult drama features outstanding local talents: Patrick Watterson as the intelligent and chilling felon Bill Reach; and Christine Wiegand and Bobby Komendera as the married research authors. The production is directed by Douglas Campbell, well-known among area theatre-goers for his many fine acting and directing accomplishments.
Performances are March 2, 3 & 4, and March 9, 10 & 11 at the theatre, 218 A Street in LaPorte, 7:30 on Friday and Saturday evenings and 2:00 on Sunday afternoons. Reservations may be made by calling 219-362-5113 or emailing email@example.com.
