THEATER 7 PRESENTS Withdrawn by Tim Dick

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. –  Theater 7 will present the inaugural installment of their first Light Series, Withdrawn, on September 21st in The Velvet Room at the Terre Haute Brewing Company.

“Withdrawn” is a one-act play written by Tim Dick, a graduate of Indiana State University. Theater 7 was introduced to the Wabash Valley during the summer of 2016. The company is united by their focus on delivering an uplifting theater experience that showcases diversity, simplicity of set and costumes, utilizes a professional core company, includes a service component, and introduces new works to the community.

The First Light Series is the vehicle through which Theater 7 produces those new works. Maverick Schmit, director of the Series, considers original work by play writes with connections to the Wabash Valley, and works with the author and members of the Theater 7 company to ‘bring them to light.’ Some productions will be a staged one-act play, while others include a full-length reading.

“Withdrawn” introduces us to Billy (Riley Leonard), a young heroin addict, and to ID (Mac Wright), the personification of that addiction. This production is in partnership with Mental Health America Vigo County, and is supported in part by a grant from the Indiana Arts Commission. That grant will allow Theater 7 to perform Withdrawn at residential facilities serving those affected by addiction and substance abuse. A spring production, Hooked by Bryant Clayton, Jr., will complete that project.

Tickets will be available for $7 at the Terre Haute Brewing Company starting at 5:00 pm. on September 21st . The half-hour show will begin at six with some discussion following. To honor its service mission, Theater 7 will be accepting donations to support those affected by the recent hurricanes and wildfires.
