A few years ago, I attended a scene day at the acting school Playhouse West. Scene days are when students in the class take scenes from plays and perform them for a live audience (some for the first time) as they learn their craft. On this particular day, the afternoon started with the opening scene from a play I wasn’t aware of – Dead Accounts by Theresa Rebeck. The students were excellent, the material captivating and I sought out the script to see what happened next. I wasn’t disappointed. Dead Accounts became a play I hoped to someday stage – and today has become that day. This wonderful cast brings Dead Accounts to life. I couldn’t be more proud of them. 

Very special thanks to my producer/assistant director and my wife Alice who knows a thing or two about theater who was essential to the success of this show. 

Enjoy this tale of ice cream, $27 million, the Midwest vs the big city, Wall Street ethics and so much more – Dead Accounts.

Meet the Company

Rachel loved being a part of "Dead Accounts." She recently played Echo in the Bridge Players' production of "Eleemosynary," directed by the wonderful Alice Weber. Some favorite roles over the years include Miss Adelaide in "Guys and Dolls," Eurydice and Aphrodite in "Metamorphoses," and Mark's Mom in "RENT." She performs once a month on Twitch in a virtual improv show called "Smoke Break." Special thanks to her husband Harrison and cat Marigold who don't mind having one of the rooms of the house turned into a rehearsal and performance space many nights a week. Sending lots of love to family and friends! Enjoy the show!
Catherine Mayher (Barbara)
A perpetual student of theater, Cathy’s been on stage since being cast in her 4th grade operetta. She and theater haven’t spent much time apart; after playing various roles through high school and college, she settled on one role for over 40 years. She played The English Teacher doing 5 acts a day at (first) BCIT- Medford, then 35 years at Cherokee H.S. in Marlton. Cathy is on the board at Bridge Players, serving as a member-at-large. She’d like to thank all the folks at Bridge, John and Alice Weber, and this fun, funny, talented cast for the opportunity to be a part of "Dead Accounts."
