Barrington Stage Co. Brings Back “Kunstler” [Berkshire on Stage]
Barrington Stage Company, the award-winning theater in downtown Pittsfield, is bringing back the Creative Place International/And Theatre Company production of Kunstler by Jeffrey Sweet, from September 13-24 at the St. Germain Stage.
Directed by Meagan Fay, Kunstler stars BSC veteran Jeff McCarthy (BSC’s Broadway Bounty Hunter, All My Sons, Sweeney Todd) as the self-described “radical lawyer” and civil rights activist William Kunstler and Erin Roché as the whip-smart student who opposes him. The colorful, perpetually rumpled defense lawyer whose best-known clients include the Chicago Seven, inmates involved in the Attica prison riots and members of the American Indian Movement, makes a case for his often unconventional style, in this wise and revealing play.
