THE GUARD

By Jessica Dickey
Directed by Tracy Brigden

March 11 – April 2, 2017

A new play by City Theatre favorite Jessica Dickey. When dedicated museum guard Henry dares to truly connect with the paintings he proudly protects, he sets into motion a time-bending journey where art intersects with life. Inspired by Rembrandt’s “Aristotle with a Bust of Homer,” The Guard embraces the idea of carpe diem in (and at) any age, and takes audiences on a spellbinding theatrical exploration of the power of human connection.
