On the Haas Stage

Arden Theatre Company will kick off the 2006/2007 season with the Philadelphia premiere of A Prayer for Owen Meany, adapted from the beloved, bestselling novel by celebrated author John Irving (The World According to Garp, The Cider House Rules).

Owen Meany is an unusually small child with a striking voice who considers himself an instrument of God. When he accidentally kills his friend?s mother in 1950s New Hampshire, the two boys are forever linked as they search for truth in a provocative dark comedy of friendship, faith and destiny.

The Arden?s production features some of Philadelphia?s most distinguished actors, including Ian Merrill Peakes, Scott Greer, Mary Martello, Anthony Lawton, Paul L. Nolan, Karen Peakes, Catharine K. Slusar and Maureen Torsney-Weir. Doug Hara?seen on Broadway in ?The Boys of Winter? and ?Metamorphoses??will bring to life the indelible character of Owen Meany. The show is directed by Arden Theatre Company?s Producing Artistic Director and co-founder, Terrence J. Nolen.
