Play Reading- Below The Belt, by Richard Dresser
Back by popular demand, the original Recovery Lounge cast of this absurd comedy will revisit the roles that had us all in stitches.
BELOW THE BELT
Three American men work as Checkers for a mysterious multi-national company in a distant land. Merkin is the power-obsessed boss, Hanrahan the tortured middle manager and Dobbitt, the disturbingly eager newcomer. Away from their families and isolated from the other workers on the industrial compound, they are completely dependent on each other. However, their need to compete is as strong as their need to connect, and they guard their territory with baroque, subterranean strategies. The play is about loneliness and the deep existential pettiness of men attempting to work together.
Cast- Brad Hurlbert as Dobbit, Terry Young as Hanrahan, and Bob Andrews as Merkin.
