Primal Forces presents Villainous Company
All-Star Female Cast in Game of Predator and Prey in Suspenseful New Production
Primal Forces brings another powerful female-focused play to the stage with Victor L. Cahn’s Villainous Company. Part comedy, part suspense, the play is a dramatic game of cat-and-mouse starring a trio of brilliant actresses, Anna Lise Jensen, Elizabeth Price and Rita Cole, directed by the incomparable Genie Croft. The production runs December 18 to January 12 at the Sol Theatre in Boca Raton. Tickets are $40-$45 at www.primalforces.com
“We are very proud that Primal Forces has garnered a reputation for showcasing some of the best actresses in South Florida in roles that are bold, challenging and fierce,” said Genie Croft, director. “For Villainous Company, we have three dynamic characters that are smart, complicated and possibly very bad women. Prepare for a lot of laughs, unexpected twists and a dose of sexual tension!”
The story opens as Claire returns home from an afternoon at the mall. Soon after realizing a package is missing, she is visited by a mysterious stranger who seems to know all about her suspicious “shopping” habits. Larceny and trickery abound as soon three women compete in a suspenseful game of cat-and-mouse.
