World Premiere production of a dark comedy that explores the emotions, intentions and
actions of South Florida’s disenfranchised lower class citizens

American Stare is a ferocious new comedy set in a South Florida trailer park where corporate greed meets its match in a community that will go to any lengths to protect its own. Following the spiraling lives of a widowed woman and her dog, a disabled accused child-predator, and a couple and their teenage daughter, we are challenged to see the world through their eyes—a world led by a broken moral compass, tainted with pervasiveness of special interests.

The talented cast of American Stare includes Summer Crockett Moore (Film: Junction Theatre: Last Summer at Bluefish, NYIT Award, Reading Under the Influence), Becca Ballenger (Little Town Blues, Richard 3, American Girls),Trey Gibbons (Ain't That Life: In Short, How I Learned To Drive, NYIT Award), Brad Holbrook (The Onion News Network, Manchurian Candidate, I Am Legend), LeeAnne Hutchison (Film: Brewsie And Willie, One Fall, Theatre: Septimus And Clarissa, Drama Desk Nom), Shane Patrick Kearns (Law & Order:SVU, Blue Collar Boys).

The production design team includes Jessica Parks (Set Design & Props), Jill Nagle (Lighting Design), John Emmett O’Brien (Sound Design), Patricia E. Doherty (Costume Design) and Jennifer Tardibuono (Stage Manager).
