DTF Summer Season Begins with Star-Studded ‘Zealot’
DTF opens its 39th summer season with a new play by local favorite, Theresa Rebeck. ’Zealot,’ a finalist for the Susan Blackburn Prize, is set at the British consulate in Mecca, where a tactical tea is interrupted by news of nearby violence. When a witness seeks asylum, a diplomatic battle of wits ensues, while a life hangs in the balance. The reading will star renowned actress Alfre Woodard and will be directed by award winning director John Doyle. The reading, staged at the Dorset Playhouse in Dorset, Vt. will take place on Thursday, June 5, at 7 p.m. A Talk Back will take place directly afterwards with the playwright, cast and director.
