Theater Voices will present a staged reading of "The Treasurer" by Max Posner, directed by Tony Pallone, on Friday, Oct. 18 at 8pm; Saturday, Oct. 19 at 3pm and 8pm; and Sunday, Oct. 20 at 3 pm. All performances are at Steamer No. 10 Theatre, 500 Western Avenue, Albany. Admission is free.
At times charming, at times chilling, the play tells the story of a son (Tom Templeton) who struggles to do right by his aging mother (Carole Edie Smith) that abandoned the family when he was a boy. As he works through his long-simmering resentment and she begins to lose her grip on reality, we are introduced to a series of minor characters (Diaka Kaba Hill, Scott Wasser) whose influence shapes both their journeys. The piece, based on the family experience of playwright Max Posner, is set largely in our own backyard: the neighborhoods of Albany, New York.
