Recently nominated for five awards by the Midtown International Theater Festival in New York City, Gray Matters, by Connecticut native Jacques Lamarre will be presented in Hartford Sept. 9-12 by Emerson Theatre Collaborative (ETC).

The New York City cast will be joined by Hartford-area native Debi Freund in performances at the Charter Oak Cultural Center in Hartford, directed by ETC's Joshua Lee Ramos.

Gray Matters, produced by ETC’s Camilla Ross, is a comedy that focuses on what happens to an uninsured, unemployed actor when she loses her memory. Jen Anaya, Kathryn Kates and Steve Sherman star. Performance information and tickets for Gray Matters be can be obtained by visiting http://www.emersontheatercollaborative.org/. Tickets are $25 ($23 for students and seniors).

In the play, acclaimed actress Sarah Gray finds herself with no insurance, no job and no prospects. Worse, she has a faulty memory. Surrounded by a well-meaning but tough agent and two self-centered young upstarts, Sarah must discover if it is possible for an actor with an Etch-a-Sketch for a brain to get back to what matters.

Gray Matters was selected as one of the 30 plays for inclusion in the 11th Annual Midtown International Theatre Festival. Lamarre is the director of communications for The Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford. read more about this Manchester, CT native here.
