J.B., the Pulitzer Prize and Best Play Tony Award®-winner by the American playwright and poet Archibald MacLeish, will be the second production in City Lit’s 2017-18 season.
MacLeish’s play, to be directed for City Lit by Brian Pastor, Artistic Director of Promethean Theatre Ensemble, takes place in a corner of an enormous circus tent, where two vendors prepare to perform a play based on the Book of Job.
City Lit's production will be performed by an ensemble of nine women over the age of 55 who will take all twenty-three roles of men, women, and children in the play's cast of characters.
