Red Herring

February 20, 2009

The Drexel Players will take the stage for five performances of Michael Hollinger's hilarious Cold-War era play Red Herring with opening night on Thursday, February 26th. Directed by Barrymore Award-winner Lee Etzold, a member of last year's MPiRP resident company New Paradise Laboratories, Red Herring is a light-hearted look at complicated love and espionage set against a backdrop of 1950's McCarthyism.
Award-winning playwright Hollinger will do an artist talk-back following the Friday, February 27th performance. Hollinger's most recent play, Opus, began at the Arden Theater and transferred to off-Broadway last fall. He is the recipient of the Roger L. Stevens Award from the Kennedy Center's Fund for New American Plays and a Barrymore Award for Outstanding New Play.
