The 2nd Stage at Burlington County Footlighters presents "The Shadow Box," a compelling dramatic triptych written by Michael Cristofer.

Performances are scheduled for the Burlington County Footlighters, 808 Pomona Road in Cinnaminson on June 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28. All performances begin at 8 p.m.

In "The Shadow Box," three terminal cancer patients dwell in separate cottages on a hospital's grounds.

The three are attended and visited by family and close friends: Agnes and her mother Felicity, estranged further by the latter's dementia; Brian and Beverly, whose marital complications are exacerbated by Brian's new lover, Mark; and Joe and Maggie, unready for the strain of Joe's impending death and its effect on their teenage son.

Director Lou DiPilla of Delran chose “The Shadow Box” because of how close it hits to home.

“I chose it as a tribute to the too many people I’ve known that have suffered and succumbed to, and continue to fight, cancer,” DiPilla said. 

“The Shadow Box” features a cast from throughout the area, including Burlington County residents Tyler Riley and Cassie DePinto Greenberg of Burlington; Jeanne Wayman and Brian Wayman of Delran; Eric Baker of Riverside; and Carla Ezell of Mt. Holly. Rounding out the cast are Kevin Doyle of Audubon, and Bob Beaucheane and Regina Beaucheane of Philadelphia.

Tickets for all performances are $10 and must be reserved by 7:45 p.m. the night of the show. To reserve tickets, call 856-829-7144. Use box office prompt #1, then 2nd Stage prompt #2. At this time, 2nd Stage is not handicapped accessible.
