Primal Forces
Second Season promises
Two Entertaining & Thought-Provoking Productions

Sunset Baby: “[A] smart and bracing new play about two generations of urban outlaws struggling to stay afloat in the lower depths.” – New York Times

Redwood Curtain: “… a little gem that has a pretty satisfying mystery at its center…you get to absorb Lanford Wilson’s terrific dialogue, and appreciate how and when he reveals precisely what we need to know in the natural flow of the narrative.” – MichiganLive

Ft. Lauderdale, FL , October 21, 2014:

Primal Forces Productions has chosen two entertaining and thought provoking pieces for its second season. The young company’s successful production of David Mamet’s The Anarchist in March of 2014 has encouraged producer Keith Garsson to continue its mission to “explore the impact of the tumultuous 1960s on today’s generation.” Both plays will be presented at Andrews Living Arts in Ft. Lauderdale.

SunsetWebSiteDominique Morisseau’s Sunset Baby, which premiered Off-Broadway in November 2013 will begin previews on November 29th, open on December 5th, and run through December 21st. John Archie will star as a former revolutionary looking to connect with his daughter (Makeba Pace) in present-day Brooklyn. “He finds that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” explains Garsson.

Redwood_WebsiteLanford Wilson’s Redwood Curtain stunned Broadway audiences in 1992 with its unique spin on a Vietnam veteran (Ethan Henry) and the mysterious young Asian woman (Amarie Lee) who tracks him down in the forests of Northern California exasperating her guardian (Jacqueline Laggy.) Redwood Curtain will begin previews on April 4th, 2015, open on April 10th, and runs through April 26th.

“The turbulent 60s provides a wealth of nostalgia and entertainment value to audiences looking for drama with a lot of meat. However, even if you weren’t there, you will be fascinated and enthralled by how different a country we were less than 50 years ago,” says Garsson.
