Mint Theater Company presents the American premiere of Elizabeth Baker's Partnership Off-Broadway at Theatre Row beginning October 1; the September 30 first preview was canceled due to the rain storm. Jackson Grace Gay directs the play, the final installment in Baker's "Meet Miss Baker" series. The production will run through November 12.
Partnership follows Kate Rolling, who, working in a small shop, yearns for more: not romance or adventure, but capitalistic expansion. But when the owner of the biggest shop in Brighton proposes a merger package that involves marrying Kate, she doesn't hesitate on the opportunity, reassuring her friends that she "never expected anything great in the way of love."
Mint Theater Company's production of Partnership is part of the company's ongoing effort to create new life for neglected and overlooked women playwrights, most recently exemplified by the world premiere of Betty Smith's Becomes a Woman.
Partnership features scenic design by Alexander Woodward, costume design by Fabian Aguilar, lighting design by M.L. Geiger, sound design by Daniel Baker, dialect and dramaturgy by Amy Stoller, and casting by Stephanie Klapper.
