Broken Angels

The Playgroup, LLC is proud to present the first production of its third season at the Willow Theatre at Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton, BROKEN ANGELS, written by Todd Caster and directed by Brian Reeves.

This courtroom drama, set in 1920’s Virginia, is an original play based on the true Supreme Court case of Buck v. Bell. Carrie Buck is sent to the Lynchburg Colony for the Feebleminded, and is the first candidate in Virginia’s new law to have the feebleminded sterilized. Saddled with a court appointed attorney, she faces a roomful of hostile witnesses who are eager to see this new law put into place. This play looks frankly at the slippery slope of marginalizing and dehumanizing certain groups of people. A powerful play with a powerful message.

Playwright Todd Caster, playwright, is co-founder of Theatre Arts Group in New York’s Hudson Valley and The Palm Beach PlayMakers in Delray Beach, Florida. His most notable works produced by The Playgroup LLC include Little Piggies and Surfing the Rubicon. He has had over 30 short plays produced by a myriad of regional and national theaters and has had two monologues published by Meriwether Publishing and are included in Audition Monologues for Young Women and The Theatre Audition Book 2. Todd lives in West Palm Beach, Florida with his wife, Mary Ellen.
