A Public Fit Theatre Company (APF) opens its first mainstage production of the 2022 season on October 14 with Three Days of Rain by Richard Greenberg. This time-bending story about legacy, lunacy and the mysteries of ancestry runs through November 7 at the SST Studios, 4340 S. Valley View, #208, in Las Vegas.
“Three Days of Rain is a character-driven story about the misperceptions we all have concerning the people closest to us,” says Ann-Marie Pereth, who, along with Joseph Kucan, directs this 1994 drama. “What do we really know about the lives our parents lived before we came along?” she asks. “In fact, the only real clues we have to examine are the stories they leave behind.”
“In this case, a very mysterious and surprisingly taciturn diary," adds Kucan.
Three Days of Rain marks the beginning of APF’s 9th season of plays and staged readings and signals the start of a new partnership with Vegas’ own Super Summer Theater. “The changing landscape of downtown forced a lot of artists to relocate as rents skyrocketed and affordable performance spaces became rare,” Pereth says. “The folks at SST opened up their studio theatre to us in a spectacular show of theatrical brotherhood. The venue may have changed, but it feels very familiar. AFP has always flourished in intimate black boxes and found spaces. We fit right in here at SST.”
Following each performance, audiences are encouraged to participate in A Public Fit’s post-show discussion, The Buzz. “It’s a moderated conversation with the cast and crew discussing the themes and discoveries of the evening’s event,” Pereth states. “We’ve found that the shared experience of great story-telling doesn’t always have to end once the curtain falls!”
A Public Fit offers a seven-show season consisting of four staged readings and three mainstage productions. APF’s remaining shows for the 2022-23 season are Brilliant Adventures by Alistair McDowall, An Oak Tree by Tim Crouch. Lydia by Octavio Solis, The Piano Lesson by August Wilson, and Alabaster by Audrey Cefaly.
Evening performances are offered at 7 p.m. with 2 p.m. matinee performances on Sundays. Tickets are $40 for general admission and $35 for Military, Seniors, and Students. Monday evening Industry Night performances are scheduled for October 24, 31, and November 7, with special pricing available.
