The Story

Copenhagen is Porpentine’s second production, following a successful run of Robert Bolt’s A Man For All Seasons earlier this year. R.

Lacey (Norton-nominee Outstanding Actor 2012) has worked with numerous theatre companies throughout New England, including Apollinaire Theatre Company, Fort Point Theatre Channel, Fresh Ink, Happy Medium Theatre, Zeitgeist Stage Company and Bad Habit Productions.

Floyd Richardson (Norfolk in Porpentine’s A Man For All Seasons) is Niels Bohr. Richardson has acted in Boston theatre since 1983, performing with Koinonia Theatre (Krapp, Krapp’s Last Tape; Sir Thomas More, A Man For All Seasons), as well as acting at Lyric Stage, The Huntington and Stoneham Theatre.

Ann Carpenter plays Margrethe. In her 20 years’ experience in Boston theatre, Carpenter has performed with Apollinaire Theatre, Theatreonfire and Hub Theatre Company among others. She recently performed on Bloomsday in Dublin with the Here Comes Everybody Players, and she will perform in March with Actor’s Shakespeare Project in God’s Ear.
