The Harassment of Iris Malloy

Teri Lamm & Juliana Zinkel
People’s Light, located at 39 Conestoga Road Rt. 401, Malvern, Pa. is presenting a new play by Zak Berkman.  Entitled The Harassment of Iris Malloy, this world premiere will be at People’s Light through July 10, 2016. That gives you ample time to make arrangements to see this powerful drama. The four member ensemble cast is outstanding. Well known actor Scott Bryce is powerful as the influential Senator Aarons who has presidential aspirations. Pete Pryor is multi-faceted as he portrays Sticker, George, and a reporter who makes a video of Iris exiting the senator’s hotel room. It is Julianna Zinkel and Teri Lamm, however, who render truly superb performances. Julianna portrays Iris Malloy,  a young single mother who has spent some time in the senator’s hotel room and is persuaded that capitalizing on it will be a road out of her poverty. Teri portrays her  spinster sister Cydney. The staging is quite masterful as well. By the movement of a sliding screen, a whole new room is presented and when it closes the original room is back again. There are twists and turns aplenty in this 90 minute one act and several questions left open to the audience’s interpretation. For more information or tickets, call the box office at 610-644-3500.  For groups, call 610-647-1900 x111.
