OSWEGO PROFESSOR'S NEW PLAY
TO PREMIER AT COFFEE HOUSE
OSWEGO -- "The Mandorla," a new play written and directed by Mark Cole, chair of the Oswego State theatre department, will be presented at The Coffee Connection in Oswego at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3.
The one-person play features actress Lori Kee as a woman whose simple mistake of picking up the wrong coat causes a domino effect of situations that lead to a mysterious and dangerous adventure.
Kee has worked regionally the past four years in theatre and commercials throughout New York state. Recently she completed a three-month engagement playing Janet in "Wally's Cafe" for the Lake George Diner Theatre. She has appeared on "Pappyland" and taught acting at SUNY Cortland.
She also worked for four years at the Sterling Renaissance Festival.
She previously spent six years working in Los Angeles in theatre, film and television as a regular on "Days of Our Lives." She studied acting with the late Sanford Meisner.
Cole recently adapted and directed "The Picture of Dorian Gray" for the Blackfriars/Student Association production on campus.
His one-person play "Poe/Play" has been produced in Oswego, Syracuse, Binghamton and New York City. "Poe/Play" was presented in London's second annual One Person Play Contest in London in 1996.
The production is jointly produced by The Coffee Connection and Vaudeville Planet Entertainment. The Coffee Connection is located at 148 Water St. For further information, call 312-2140.
