The first read through for Daniel Landon's play TWO DETECTIVES is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 2nd. The entire production team will be present at the reading as well, so I'll have a chance to meet everyone who is working on the show.
I read through the entire script and I am very excited.
The character of Jacob Lasky is an important one since the main focus of the story is about his sudden disappearance.
Jacob is a man battling some inner demons; the demons of the Holocaust and life after his experience in the camps. He's worked in the Garment District for 40 years, most recently as an employee of his own daughter Rachel, who inherited control of the Company after her mother's death. He battles crippling depression almost daily and while he wants to retire from the business to try and find some joy in his life before it's too late, Rachel won't let him.
Jacob suddenly disappears and that's where our story begins.
Lots of twists and turns...Like I said. I'm excited.
Jacob is another one of those nice, little supporting roles that you know I love doing so much.
Here is the poster for the show, which is a part of the Manhattan Repertory Theatre's WINTERFEST 2008.
