Monday Night, July 26 at 8 p.m. in the Actor’s Express space, it’s donate-what-you-can (cash only) Industry Night for the Essential Theatre’s Georgia Premiere of Peter Hardy’s award-winning play SALLY AND GLEN AT THE PALACE, directed by Ellen McQueen (ICE GLEN) and starring Jacob York and Kate Graham.
“Peter Hardy’s Sally and Glen at the Palace is a lovely valentine to the movies, a trivia buff’s dream and a sweet, coming-of-age story about friendships made in unlikely places. You have to admire Hardy’s delicate approach and the winning performances of Kate Graham (Sally) and Jacob York (Glen). York is a wonderful comic actor who ultimately reveal his character’s tenderness and vulnerability … Graham and York are two young performers to watch.”
Wendell Brock, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“An intimate, unassuming two-character romance about 1970’s college students who work at a movie theater, Sally and Glen at the Palace is … warmly realized by director Ellen McQueen and co-stars Jacob York and Kate Graham … written (so well) by Peter Hardy. On either side of the stage, illuminated displays of ever-changing posters ingeniously establish the period setting … the thoughtful and sensitive performances by York and Graham [prove] that bigger doesn’t always mean better.”
