Mystery drama play ‘The Other Place’ presented in Anaheim

Anaheim’s Chance Theater presents Sharr White’s “The Other Place” now through Oct. 28 at Bette Aitken Theater Arts Center on the Fyda-Mar Stage.

The play tells the story of Dr. Juliana Smithton, a trailblazing neurologist, who is about to deliver the most important seminar of her medical career – but things are getting weird.

The burden of her estranged daughter, the fallout from her troubled marriage, and the pressure of launching a tempestuous wonder drug are causing her to see and hear things, including a mysterious woman in a yellow bikini sitting in the front row of this very audience. Is Dr. Smithton losing her brilliant mind to a world of lies – or is she actually seeing the whole truth for the very first time?

“The Other Place” is a family drama wrapped in a mystery that delves into the dark underbelly of “having it all.”

Since it started previews, The Other Place has been a hit with Chance Theater audiences, and recent previews are just piling on the accolades, especially for Jacqueline Wright, who stars as brilliant neurologist, Juliana Smithton.
