Refracted Theatre Company announced casting for its world premiere of Andrew Kramer's dark comedy St. Sebastian, directed by Artistic Director Graham Miller.
The play features Nolan Robinson, Mack Spotts and Adam Thatcher. Understudies include Matheus Barbee and Evan B. Smith.
Launching Refracted Theatre's inaugural Chicago season, this three-hander about a queer white couple who move into a historically Black neighborhood will be presented Sept. 15-Oct. 2 at The Den Theatre (2B), 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave.
According to a press release, "The play is a dark comedy with a disturbing edge. Ben convinces his much younger boyfriend Gideon to move out of their apartment in the city to flip a house … but he leaves out that the new house is in a historically (and currently) Black neighborhood. When Ben befriends and employs a local neighborhood kid named Reuben, the blurry line between ignorance, activism and fear lays bare how perniciously racism hides just beyond the face of 'wokeness.'"
