American Theater Company opens ‘Dead Ringer’; Broadway at Boston Avenue prepares ‘Cinderella’ | Arts & Theater

Two quintessentially American genres – western and film noir – come together in “Dead Ringer,” which the American Theater Company will perform July 21-24 at Studio 308, 308 S. Lansing Ave.

Written by Gino Dilorio, “Dead Ringer” is a dark comedy centered on Tyrus Cole, a horse trainer, who lives on a ranch with his invalid sister, Mary. Because he can’t watch her during the day, Tyrus keeps Mary confined to the root cellar.

One day, a stranger named Dwight Foley shows up, looking for help with his horse. When Dwight discovers Mary, love soon sets in and plans are made to get rid of Travis.

In true noir style, these plans escalate, trapping all three in a complex web of greed and secrets, intrigue and mystery.

Timothy Hunter directs the play, which stars Angela McLaughlin, Obum Ukabam and Steve Barker.
