The Ensemble Theatre
The Ensemble Theatre Opens New Season With the Timely Production of "A Lesson Before Dying"
HOUSTON, Sept. 2, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- The Ensemble Theatre will launch its new 2005-2006 Mainstage Season with "A Lesson Before Dying" by playwright Romulus Linney, based on the award winning novel by Ernest J. Gaines. The play premieres on Thursday, September 15th with a media reception at 6 p.m. with honored guest, Ernest J. Gaines, and Opening Night reception at 6:30 p.m. followed by the performance at 7:30 p.m. at The Ensemble Theatre located at 3535 Main St. Set in the segregated society of Louisiana in 1948, it is the powerful story of a young Black man wrongly accused and placed on Death Row. With the increase of state moratoriums on death penalty executions and protests over the impending Texas execution of Francis Newton, who is scheduled to be executed on September 14th, it is also a timely production. Like the novel, the play engages an audience in what Mr. Gaines describes as the test of "grace under pressure." The novel is required reading for many school districts across the country including Houston.
