Opening on January 24, 2014 as part of the Acts of Faith Festival, The Joshua Plant
is CAT Theatre's 2014 contribution to the Richmond Acts of Faith Festival.
Josh, an autistic teen with little to no language skills, shares a rich friendship
with Sid, a houseplant. Together Sid and Josh work to save Josh’s mother from the
hands of her manipulative boyfriend, Jimmy, and prevent Jimmy's plan to place Josh
in an institution.
Written by Amy Berlin and P. Ann Bucci, The Joshua Plant was the winner of CAT's
50th Anniversary Original Play contest and was chosen from dozens of entries.
The Joshua Plant began as a ten-minute play that was a finalist in the 2005 Chicago
Dramatist Fall Ten Minute Workshop. Since then, it has had three developmental readings
with Phoenix Theatre and a staged reading at the Pandora Festival, as well as a reading
at the Richmond Public Library as part of the Richmond Writer's series. CAT Theatre
is excited to be bringing the full production of The Joshua Plant to the stage for
the first time.
The Joshua Plant will play eleven performances closing on February 8, 2014.
Congratulations to the official cast of CAT Theatre's World Premiere of THE JOSHUA
PLANT written by Amy Berlin and P. Ann Bucci and directed by Laura Follmer.
