DETROIT—Matrix Theatre Company continues its 2016 – 2017 mainstage season with the professional world premiere of Abbey Fenbert’s satirical comedy, Intentions, opening February 3 and running through February 26. The production runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 3:00 pm. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors and may be purchased in advance or, if available, at the door. Group rates are also available. For further information or to purchase tickets, visit www.matrixtheatre.org or call (313) 967-0599.

The final dress rehearsal on Thursday, February 2 is a “Pay What You Can” performance. Beginning this season in order to help eliminate the barrier between audiences and live theatre, patrons can choose to pay whatever amount they want at the door to see the preview show of Intentions. Tickets will be available that evening only on a first-come-first-served basis and cannot be purchased or reserved in advance. Doors open at 7:30 pm for the 8:00 pm performance.

Fenbert’s comedy centers around the people of Tillerman House, an intentional community located on the outskirts of Chicago. If something’s not sustainable, local, shade-grown, fair-trade, and cruelty-free, Nell, one of the community’s founders, is sure to right it – until Leif comes along. Can the collective’s fragile ecosystem sustain an ex-frat bro who doesn’t know a ‘zine from a Zen garden? Intentions examines the lengths to which we go, and the lies we tell, for both our principles and our desires.

Intentions stars Samer Ajluni (Farmington Hills) as Gabe, Emily Harpe (Detroit) as Lou, Siena Hassett (Grosse Pointe Park) as Nell, Artun Kircali (Ann Arbor) as Leif, and Sam Moltmaker (Hamtramck) as Maya. The production team includes Sarah Drum (Westland), Valerie Frawley (Hamtramck), Christina Killmar (Harrison Twp), Lauren Montgomery (Dearborn), Amy Schneider (Detroit), and Christa Tausney (Orion).
