The Forum Players Open New Season with 'Mindgame'

Suspense Thriller Takes the Stage at Genesee Community College
The Forum Players at Genesee Community College, the college’s student-based acting group, will be opening their 2008-2009 theatrical season with MINDGAME. Premiering Thursday, October 16, 2008 at 7:30PM in the Stuart Steiner Theatre, subsequent performances include Friday, October 17, 2008 at 7:30PM, Saturday, October 18, 2008 at 7:30PM, and Sunday, October 19, 2008 at 2:00PM.

A thrilling psychodrama by Anthony Horowitz, MINDGAME is the story of a prominent novelist and author of “true crime” stories as he enters a secluded mental asylum to interview a notorious serial killer. Between a hostile doctor, an intruding nurse and missing staff members, the author stumbles into a nightmarish world of murder and deception, and soon discovers that nothing is quite what it seems. A play full of twists and turns, one question remains… dare you play?

As the London Evening Standard stated, “MINDGAME probes the terror of madness while exhibiting roguish love of the macabre.”MINDGAME features Johnny Dow (Rochester, NY) as Styler, Anjelica Sistrunk (Syracuse, NY) as Plimpton, and Edward Wolfe (Arcade, NY) as Farquhar. MINDGAME is being directed by Maryanne Arena, Director of the Fine and Performing Arts department at Genesee Community College, with Technical Direction by Edward Hallborg, the new Technical Director and Technical Theatre faculty member at the Center for the Arts.
