World Premiere of “Conviction” at Bay Street Theatre
June 10, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - June 15, 2014 @ 7:00 pm
“Conviction” tells the story of the family of Tom Hodges, a charismatic, confident and caring teacher who is adored by students and admired by parents. He’s considered the smart, wise-cracking colleague with all the answers, the neighbor who takes care of the neighborhood, the perfect husband and father.
But when a student accuses Tom of crossing a line, everything changes. This delicately balanced, nuanced new family drama digs deep beneath the surface of a happy suburban existence to explore the damage done when seeds of mistrust are planted. It asks the question — How can we live with conviction when some questions cannot be answered?
The cast includes Garret Dillahunt (“Raising Hope,” “12 Years a Slave”) as Tom; Sarah Paulson (“American Horror Story,” “12 Years a Slave”) as his wife Leigh; Elizabeth Reaser (“Twilight” films, Second Stage’s revival of “How I Learned to Drive”) as their friend Jayne; Brian Hutchison (“Man and Boy,” “Looped”) as her husband Bruce; and Daniel Burns (“Twelfth Night”, “Shipwrecked!”) as Tom and Leigh’s son Nicholas.
