CULT OF LOVE
Directed by Annie Tippe
World Premiere, IAMA Theatre Company, May 18-June 24, 2018
In Cult of Love, the Dahl family has gathered to celebrate Christmas in their rural Connecticut home. Raised as strict Christians and overachievers, the four adult children (along with their partners) have grown into varying degrees of belief and success. Their initially joyful reunion quickly reveals an American family riddled with competition, xenophobia and mental illness.
The Cult of Love acting ensemble includes Tom Amandes, Laila Ayad, Christian Durso, Tina Huang, John Lavelle, Graham Sibley, Melissa Stephens, Sarah Utterback, Keliher Walsh and Christine Woods.
Set design is by Jeffrey McLaughlin; lighting design is by Josh Epstein; sound design is by Christopher Moscatiello; costume design is by Melissa Trn; props are by Michael O’Hara; and the musical director is Anthony Lucca. The stage manager is Sarah Dawn Lowry, and Amy Rosoff Davis and Tom DeTrinis produce for IAMA Theatre Company.
