Comedy ‘Faded Glory’ to open at North Coast Rep in Solana Beach

fadedgloryFollowing its highly successful world premiere of Mandate Memories, North Coast Rep is mounting a second world premiere, Faded Glory. Written by Tim Burns, this comedic romp tells the improbable, but true, story of Daniel Sickels, a 19th-century congressman, friend to presidents, Civil War general, lover of Queen Isabella II of Spain, notorious philanderer, embezzler, murderer, and the officer who almost cost the Union victory in perhaps the most pivotal battle of the Civil War, only to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor. Based on this real figure from American history, funny, poignant and filled with astonishing little-known historical information, Faded Glory promises to be a highlight of the season. Audiences will enjoy a rollicking comedic romp through this amazing life.

Faded Glory previews begin Wednesday, May 28. Opening night, Saturday, May 31, 8 p.m. includes a post-show reception. There will be a special talkback on Friday, June 6, with the cast and director. It will play through June 22. North Coast Repertory Theatre is located at 987 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Suite D, Solana Beach, CA 92075. Call 858-481-1055 or visit www.northcoastrep.org to purchase tickets.
