Barbara Farrar is no stranger to Hilton Head audiences. Between 2001 and 2014 she acted twelve major roles at the now defunct SCRC--among them Wit, Doubt, Foxfire, Yellow Dog Crossing, Rabbit Hole, and most recently, The Cocktail Hour and Skull in Connemara. Most of these were directed by her husband, Tom Evans.
Barbara has worked in theatre as an actor, director, acting coach, or administrator for fifty-odd years. In 1992, to advance her career she settled in New York City. In 1996, she was cast as a Broadway stand-in for Estelle Parsons in the two-character play, Grace and Glorie. Playing opposite Lucie Arnaz, Barbara went on for Estelle for thirty percent of the run. In the summer of 2014, Barbara turned her 11th performance of Grace at the Shuler Theatre in Raton, NM, where she also played 'Lady Bracknell' in The Importance of Being Earnest.
