GLENDALE, Ariz. - May 31, 2017 - PRLog -- Natty and David have been married for five years. After years struggling to establish David as a Magician, their careers are finally taking off but their relationship is becoming unhinged. When David cuts Natty out of their act, she decides to get the ultimate revenge by hiring an assistant and starting her own act. But when magic is involved, nothing is as straightforward as it may appear and Natty may not be prepared for the truth about her husband, their relationship, and herself.

According to Brelby artistic director, Shelby Maticic, "The Pledge is a thrilling and fast-paced play that will leave audiences guessing right up until the final scene. It's a play about magic, quite literally. We follow a young woman, Natty, on an intense journey of personal discovery as she deals with the fading interests of her magician husband. The play is full of reveals and surprises, just like a great magic show. The layers are brilliantly executed by playwright Megan O'Connor, and this cast is executing a complicated story in a beautiful way. You'll see a complex and engaging story, along with some actual magic tricks unfolding onstage. Don't miss it," she said.

The Pledge features Jen Gantwerker (Macbeth, After Hours at Rosie's Pub) as Natty, Clayton Caufman (The Oz Chronicles, Peter and the Starcatcher) as David, Willa Eigo (poseidon's regret, She Kills Monsters) as Lindy, Jessie Tully (The Oz Chronicles, Postcards from the Apocalypse) as Bret, Alex Tuchi (Peter and the Starcatcher, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) as Tyler, James Beneze (Quest for Claus: the musical) as Andrew, and Katelyn Landaal as the Reporter in her Brelby stage debut.

The Pledge by Megan O'Connor is directed by Brian Maticic and plays June 16-17, 23-24, 30, July 1 at 7:30pm and June 18, 25 at 2pm.
