Rebecca Rule reading as THE WOMAN
The indomitable and fun Rebecca Rule has agreed to tackle the challenging role as THE WOMAN, the female oppressor in the play, one of two oppressors written into the piece by Playwright Ariel Dorfman (the other--THE MAN--will be read by Actor Richard Backus).
Rebecca's good-natured attitude and commanding voice talents made her, if not a natural choice for the role, a gratifying fit for the formidable character. While Alec Baldwin has read both oppressor roles as the sole villain, Rebecca may be the first female actor to agree to read as THE WOMAN; we are pleased to present her in this intriguing role in the New Hampshire Premiere Reading of Speak Truth to Power.
