ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ Pet Brick Productions, founded in 1999 by co-artistic directors Patrick Wang (SB 1998) and Brett Conner, begins its new season on Thursday, Sept. 7 with David Mamet's The Water Engine, followed on Friday, Sept. 15 with the world premiere of 7 affadavits on authority by award-winning local playwright Brandon Toropov. Mr. Toropov's play is presented as a joint production by Theatrics! Mr. Wang, whose degree is in economics, is now what he calls a "non-equity, professional actor, director and producer." Both plays will run in repertory through October 1 at the Tremont Theater at 276 Tremont Street in Boston.
