"It is also the recipient of the 2013-2014 Joseph Jefferson Award for Outstanding Direction by Jason Gerace. Gerace returns to Strawdog to remount Gale Childs Daly's bold reinvention of the classic novel where a cast of six (Amanda Drinkall, Caleb Fullen, Mary Winn Heider, Cody Proctor, Paige Smith and Mike Tepeli) quick-change their way through nearly 40 characters.
