This April, Westchester Collaborative Theater (WCT) is presenting The Legend, written by Rick Apicella and directed by Joe Albert Lima, the world-premiere of an original play ranked a 2018 ‘commended new play’ by the BBC in a multi-lingual international playwriting competition that spanned the continents. The Legend will open on Thursday, April 4 at 8 pm, and run weekends through Saturday, April 27 at WCT’s Black Box theater at 23 Water Street in Ossining, New York.
The Legend is an urban fairy tale about the journey of William Rodriguez, a young boxer who has not spoken since he was brutally bullied as a child. When his mother dies, William decides to embark on a journey into the rabbit hole of professional prizefighting with the help of his trainer and next-door neighbor, only to find that their vulnerabilities are used against them at every turn.
Following its opening, The Legend will run Fridays at 8pm on April 5, 12, 19 and 26; Saturdays at 2 pm and 8 pm, April 6, 13, 20 and 27; and Sundays at 3 pm April 7, 14 and 21. Talk-backs after Sunday performances.
Tickets are $25; $20 discount tickets are available for WCT members, students, seniors and groups of 5+. Advance online purchase is strongly recommended: https://thelegendwct.brownpapertickets.com/
