The next production of the Hampton Theatre Company in Quogue is “An Act of the Imagination,” a mystery by Bernard Slade, which will open next Thursday and run through April 9. The suspenseful play’s protagonist is Arthur Putnam, the writer of 27 mystery novels, who has created his first romance.
The cast includes Matthew Conlon as Mr. Putnam, James M. Lotito Jr. as his friend Fred Burchitt, a police detective, and Rebecca Edana as the writer’s wife. Other performers are Jesse Pimpinella, Amanda Griemsmann, Meggie Doyle, and Cesa Pledger.
Performances will take place Thursdays and Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 8, and Sunday afternoons at 2:30. Tickets are $30, $25 for senior citizens (except Saturdays), $15 for those under 35, and $10 for students.
The company recently named Terry Brennan as its new general manager. Ms. Brennan, who worked for the CM Performing Arts Center in Oakdale in sales, marketing, subscriptions, and box office management, also worked in theater as a producer, director, and performer. For six years, she and her husband, Ed, ran the Airport Playhouse in Bohemia.
