Jan. 19, 2018 – [Milwaukee, WI] Milwaukee Repertory Theater is pleased to announce the cast of the World Premiere production One House Over, written by Catherine Trieschmann. One House Over features Zoë  Sophia Garcia (Goodman, Playwrights Horizon, Actors Theatre of Louisville) as Camila,

Justin Huen (Mark Taper, Geffen, Theaterworks) as Rafael, Mark Jacoby (Broadway: Ragtime, The Phantom of the Opera, Show Boat, The Rep’s Five Presidents) as Milos, Jeanne Paulsen (Broadway: The Kentucky Cycle (Tony Nomination), The Crucible, Oregon Shakespeare Festival Resident Company member,  numerous regional theatre appearances) as Patty and Elaine Rivkin (Writers Theatre, Northlight Theater, Steppenwolf, Victory Gardens Theatre) as Joanne.

One House Over is directed by Artistic Director Mark Clements, which marks his third World Premiere on the Powerhouse stage following American Song (2015/16) and Five Presidents (2014/15). The creative team features scenic design by Kevin Depinet (Chicago based with work at numerous regional theatres, The Rep’s Good People), costume design by Rachel Laritz (APT, Kansas City Rep, Utah Shakespeare, Florentine Opera, most recently for The Rep The Glass Menagerie), lighting design by Jesse Klug (Chicago based with work at numerous regional theatres and Off-Broadway, Jeff Award-winner, most recently for The Rep Of Mice and Men), sound design/original composition by Joe Cerqua (over 250 productions nationally and internationally, numerous regional theatres, most recently for The Rep The Foreigner). Dramaturgs Brent Hazleton (Rep Associate Artistic Director) and Abigail Gonda (Development Producer for BBC Writersroom).

One House Over is a brilliantly funny and provocative new piece by one of today’s hottest playwrights. Joanne, who lives with her elderly father in their suburban Chicago home, is relieved to have help and support when Rafael and Camila Hernandez move in downstairs to tend to her father. But, she can’t anticipate the complications that arise when “the help” starts to feel like family…and act like it. It’s an empathetic but searing examination of boundaries, power, privilege, and fear in a single backyard.

One House Over begins performances February 27 and runs through March 25 in the Quadracci Powerhouse.   Opening night is Friday, March 2 at 8:00 pm. Tickets to this powerful new play are now on sale and can be purchased online at, by phone at 414-224-9490 or in person at the Ticket Office (108 E. Wells Street).

Executive Producer for One House Over is Judy Hansen. Associate Producers are Catherine and Buddy Robinson and the Four-Four Foundation, Inc.  This production is supported in part by an Edgerton Foundation for New Plays Award. One House Over is a co-production with Geva Theatre Center. The Rep is sponsored in part by The United Performing Arts Fund.
