Meet Kepler! Trey Deason

June 16, 2018

Trey Deason stars as Johannes Kepler in the world premiere of Reina Hardy's THE AFTERPARTY for Shrewd Productions


A message from Trey

I'm very excited to be returning to the funny, weird, and fascinating world of Reina Hardy. This is my second play of hers to be in, the first was Stars and Barmen (now titled Stargazers) which also played at the Vortex and was one of my favorite theatrical experiences ever. It's very special to be continuing the exploration of the world of Claire with this great cast and crew and Liz Fisher guiding us director. One quick note, since I've been asked this before: I'm not playing the same character here as I did in Stars and Barmen, even though the two plays are related. I am, however, still playing an obnoxious, nerdy scientist.
