“The Voysey Inheritance”: Madoff Circa 1905

Share Article

An Off-Broadway hit comes to Peterborough Players with three of its stars and director.

“The Voysey Inheritance” was written in 1905 by Harley Granville-Barker, however, it tells a tale that proves that there is nothing new under the sun. It is a story that we are all too painfully familiar with if we were keeping up with Bernie Madoff and his fraudulent financial dealings. But, “The Voysey Inheritance” gives us hope that there still may be some good people out there who might try to set things right. This iconic British play of morality and manners comes to the Peterborough Players this summer.

A rich and delightful cast of characters keep us on the edge of our seat. Lisa Bostnar (http://www.lisabostnar.com), George Morfogen and Kraig Swartz will reprise their roles that had sold out Off-Broadway’s The Mint Theater (http://www.minttheater.org) over two 'back by popular demand' runs in 1999 and 2000. Ms. Bostnar, who started The Mint with then husband of seventeen years, Jonathan Bank, sold out many houses in “Voysey” and numerous other productions gaining The Mint critical and artistic success. The New York Times wrote that “The Voysey Inheritance manages to be simultaneously spare and sumptuous, with a standout performance by Lisa Bostnar, and under Gus Kaikkonen's (http://www.guskaikkonen.com) direction, George Morfogen as the senior Voysey is a generous, cheerful, guiltless thief trusted by everyone and Kraig Swartz grows almost imperceptibly from a scandalized young prig into a man who finds total loss is salvation.“ This not-to-miss production runs at The Peterborough Players in Peterborough, New Hampshire from August 20th through the 31st. Tickets are available by calling the Peterborough Players box office (603) 924-7585 or by visiting their web site http://www.peterboroughplayers.org.

Ms. Bostnar will also star in two other productions this summer at the Peterborough Players: Charles Morey’s new comedy, “The Granite State” (July 23-August 3) and Somerset Maugham’s “The Circle” (August 6- August 17).

The Peterborough Players, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, has been providing professional theatre to audiences since 1933. Its rich history has included performances by Bette Davis, James Whitmore, Robert Morse, Jean Stapleton and Gordon Clapp.
