PURE Theatre to Welcome Playwright Steven Dietz

In conjunction with the Southeastern regional premiere of his play This Random World, playwright Steven Dietz will join PURE Theatre for a special post-show talkback and reception following the Saturday, March 10, 2018 performance. “We are honored to welcome Steven to the Lowcountry and to be able to share our interpretation of This Random World with him,” says Sharon Graci, PURE Theatre’s Artistic Director. “When I first read his play, it resonated so strongly with me that I felt compelled to share it with Charleston. This play focuses on the beautiful inevitability of encounter, so to have Steven joining us for a performance only deepens the insightful themes of the play.”

Steven Dietz's plays — which include YANKEE TAVERN, BECKY'S NEW CAR, LAST OF THE BOYS, LONELY PLANET, SHOOTING STAR, PRIVATE EYES, INVENTING VAN GOGH, and THE NINA VARIATIONS — have been seen at over one hundred regional theatres, as well as Off-Broadway and in fifteen countries internationally. A two-time finalist for the Steinberg New Play Award, Mr. Dietz received the PEN USA Award in Drama for LONELY PLANET, and the Edgar Award for Best Mystery Play for SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE FINAL ADVENTURE. Other widely-produced adaptations include DRACULA (from Bram Stoker), PARAGON SPRINGS (from Ibsen) and FORCE OF NATURE (from Goethe). Mr. Dietz and his family divide their time between Seattle and Austin, where he teaches playwriting and directing at the University of Texas.

Mining the comedy of missed connections, This Random World asks the serious question of how often we travel parallel paths through the world without noticing. From an ailing woman who plans one final trip, to her daughter planning one great escape and her son falling prey to a prank gone wrong, this funny, intimate, and heartbreaking play explores the lives that may be happening just out of reach of our own.

PURE Theatre’s performance on March 10 begins at 7:30pm. For tickets and more information, visit www.puretheatre.org or call the PURE Theatre box office at (843) 723-4444.
