Manbites Dog Theater: Dana Marks Has Taken Her Role in An Oak Tree to Heart, and Pours Herself into It
Manbites Dog has given us some truly astonishing plays, both stunners and sleepers, in the 20 years they have been performing in Durham. But this one is unique. Imagine trying to steel yourself to perform a role you have never seen or heard and that, after tonight, you can never play it again. This is fascinating stuff, even outside the very tense and numbing subject matter. Manbites Dog artistic director Jeff Storer stages this show with exceptional skill and has already employed a dozen actors just to bring this play through rehearsal.
