Actors’ Theatre, Grand Rapids’ home for off-Broadway productions, will present the critically-acclaimed dark comedy Mr. Marmalade, written by East Grand Rapids-native Noah Haidle.

Managing Director Kyle Dutkiewicz has provided a synopsis for those unfamiliar with this twisted tale: “Lucy is a 4-year-old girl with a very active imagination. Unfortunately, her imaginary friend Mr. Marmalade doesn’t have much time for her. Not to mention he beats up his personal assistant, has a cocaine addiction and a penchant for pornography. Larry, her only real friend, is the youngest suicide attempt in the history of New Jersey.”

Michelle Urbane said she is thrilled to direct his first main stage show with Actors’ Theatre.

“Children absorb: they see and hear everything around them, and those observations manifest through their imaginations,” Urbane said. “Through their ‘child’s play’ we see their translation of life. It’s lovely, frightening, funny and thought-provoking.”
