Merciful Delusions at Theatre Row

Merciful Delusions Productions is announcing the November 2022 presentation of four one-act plays by Tennessee Williams this fall at Theatre Row in Manhattan. The rarely produced works are Moony’s Kid Don’t Cry, The Lady of Larkspur Lotion, The Case of the Crushed Petunias and Hello from Bertha. All shows are directed by Tony® Award Nominee, Lorraine Serabian, and produced by Nicole Gut who will play Bertha in Hello From Bertha. Gut is the founder of Merciful Delusions; this is the fifth production delving into the fantasy world of Tennessee Williams produced by the company.

The shows will take place at Theatre Row, 410 West 42nd Street in Manhattan, in Theatre 1. The show schedule is: Nov. 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 12 at 7:30 and Nov. 5th at 2:00 and 7:30. There will be a Q&A with the director, producer and actors on November 5th after the 2:00 matinee.

Tickets are $28.50 ($24.50 for Students and Seniors) including online fees and may be purchased here: https://bfany.org/theatre-row/shows/merciful-delusions-4-one-act-plays-by-tennesee-williams/

“Delusions of grandeur” is a common theme throughout these four one-act plays, which include a stargazing would-be lumberjack trapped in a life with a sickly woman and child; a surreal look at the world through the eyes of a dreamer; a delusional romantic writer falling in-love with the precursor of Streetcar’s Blanche; and finally, a dying prostitute with a fantasy love interest.

“Tennessee Williams gives an actor and director so much juicy stuff to work with between character, dialogue and emotion. He just understood what it was like to be down and out. The theme of delusions runs through all his works and many of his characters. He writes so empathetically, so mercifully.” – Nicole Gut, Founder of Merciful Delusions, LLC., and the character “Bertha” in Hello From Bertha

The cast includes JR Carter, Elena Clark, Letty Ferrer*, Josh Freed, Marie-Claire Giraud, Jimmy Grant, Nicole Gut*, Emily Hooper*, Natalie Neckyfarow*, Michelle Oppedisano, Martin Riofrio, & Joey Welsh. Additional casting to be announced.
