Bowne announced the world-premiere online production of Hammaad Chaudry's Security, as part of the company's new Multiplatform Commission.
Security, directed by Executive Producer Ansley Valentine, premieres online April 10-May 2, with plans for an in-person production when it is safe to do so.
The cast includes Academy Award and three-time Golden Globe nominee Eric Roberts (as Brian) and Harsh J. Gagoomal (as Riaz).
The plot is as follows: A 17-year-old Riaz arrives from Britain to the United States for the first time and is stopped and interrogated at the airport by a Homeland Security officer named Brian. The experience will change Riaz's life forever. Thirteen years later, a grown-up Riaz returns to the United States, hunts down Brian at his homeand reverses roles.
The online production will be a blend of film and theater. Green screens and professional film set-ups will be sent to the cast in their individual locations, and with the with the work of a video editor, the final production will look and feel as if both actors are sharing the same space.
Tickets for the online production are $25 per household or $10 per adult, $8 per senior and $5 per student. Tickets are on sale at www.kanerepertorytheatre.com/box-office .
