* World Premiere

Temporary Help (1999)
Curiosity can kill more than just cats. When the virile Vincent arrives at the Strebers' Nebraska farm-house, the stakes radically rise in Karl and Faye's cunning cat-and-mouse game. Spice this up with the local sheriff— suspicious of Karl and sweet on Faye — and see what brews. In this steamy psychological thriller, "payday" gets a whole new meaning as each player in this perilous game gets what he has earned. ACT's Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein will direct the world premiere in the Falls Theatre.
