After its stunning debut at Hoboken’s Mile Square Theatre, Erin Mallon‘s The Net Will Appear lept across the Hudson to entertain NYC audiences. Now the play is going online for a limited run with original cast members Matilda Lawler (The Ferryman) and Richard Masur (Risky Business, Orange Is The New Black) to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association and Needham Goes Purple.
The Net Will Appear is set on two rooftops in suburban Ohio. A 75-year-old man and a 9-year-old girl sit on houses full of secrets. Literally. Bernard, dealing with the declining cognition of his beloved wife, wants nothing more than to enjoy his beer (and perhaps kill a few sparrows), but Rory next door has different plans for him. With six decades between them and only four chance encounters to connect, these unlikely new friends unearth what’s buried in each other and find new ground.
Emmy-nominated Masur and rising star (Hoboken native) Lawler virtually reprise their roles to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. The performance will be available online July 19-24, 2020.
Presented in partnership with Needham Goes Purple, this limited-time engagement seeks to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s and underscores the importance of connection during these isolating times.
Donations are welcome and will directly support the national Alzheimer’s Association as well as the local chapter associated with each donor.
