UA Theatre continues its season with Maxim Gorky’s The Lower Depths, directed by guest artist Jimmie Woody. The Lower Depths depicts a group of impoverished individuals living in a homeless shelter. Premiered in Russia in 1902, the play explores the dichotomy between the harsh truths of the characters’ reality and the comforting lies that pervade their lives. The UA production moves the action to New York City circa 1910 and highlights the many different social classes and ethnic tensions of the era. Director Jimmie Woody is a Northeast Ohio actor/director who was recently featured in Cleveland Playhouse’s production of Sweat.
