I am very pleased to announce I’ve accepted the role of Mark McPherson in the upcoming production of Laura at Tarrant Actors Regional Theatre. The play by Vera Caspary and George Sklar will come to life under the direction of Allen Walker. Laura will open September 8 and run through September 24, 2017 at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center.
It’s August 1944 in New York City, and when detective Mark McPherson first falls in love with Laura Hunt, he knows he’s in love with a phantom – for Laura is dead, and he’s in charge of her murder investigation.
From her portrait, her letters, her personal effects, and from his contacts with the three men who loved her, Mark has created an image of a woman tantalizingly real. As the story progresses, Mark discovers lies, infidelities, and hidden identities, all leading him into a labyrinthine search for Laura’s killer.
Riddled with surprises, full of dynamic characters and rich, fast-moving dialogue, Laura is a thrilling mystery in the film noir style that will keep audiences guessing “whodunnit” right up to the final scene.
“…[a] story which is filled with mystery, murder, romance, comedy, and unrequited love.” ~MD Theatre Guide
“…a well-acted, entertaining suspense dramedy, particularly for those with a fondness for the fabulous ’40’s.” ~StageSceneLA
