Cygnet Productions announces the premier of its original adaptation of J.M. March’s rhyming epic The Set-Up, at Shaking-the-Tree Theater. Written by the author of The Wild Party (previously produced by Cygnet), The Set-Up, a Jazz Age melodrama, tells a tale of savagery in the boxing ring with nervous, rapidly moving, rhyming couplets. In performance, the piece takes on an ambience and quality unlike anything most have ever seen onstage. Imagine the world of Damon Runyon presented by Homer, in the format of an epic poem, yet, like Moliere, in rhyming couplets. The play takes place in Hell's Kitchen during the late 1920s. It focuses on a black boxer, an imminent champion, whose return to the ring is secretly set up for defeat. Atmospheric, colorful, humorous, and tragic, The Set-Up draws you into a time when boxing, like baseball, was a number one spectator sport. With its unforgiving authenticity and rich detail of character, The Set-Up is a work whose violent action has both root and logic in the characters themselves. Original adaptation by Louanne Moldovan, David Meyers, and Shelly Lipkin Directed by Louanne Moldovan Produced by Louanne Moldovan and David Meyers When:February 12 – March 5,2016 Where:Shaking-the-Tree Theater, 823 SE Grant Street, Portland, OR Tickets:$25 General Admission $20 Seniors and Students Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2484134 https://www.facebook.com/Cygnet-Productions-The-Setup-an-original-adaptation-545200388961640/?fref=ts Principal Cast: ActorsMusician Don AlderAdrian P.
