We just received an email from Kevin Spacey wishing us well as we head into tech this week. That’s a bit surreal…
HERE is the feature.

AT PLAY presents
in association with Old Vic New Voices
by Josh Koenigsberg
Directed by Lauren Keating
(The Lion Theatre, 410 West 42nd Street)

“When New Jersey Gaffing Assistant Al Gurvis accidentally gets his new business cards swapped with those of real-estate agent Eileen Lee, he’s mildly annoyed. Little does he know that this tiny mix up has sparked a chain reaction which will ultimately ruin his life. A comedy about waking up from the American Dream.”

About At Play Productions
At Play is a group of emerging artists that were brought together as part of Old Vic New Voices under the artistic direction of Kevin Spacey. In 2008, At Play put on The 24 Hour Plays at the Atlantic Theatre as their inaugural event. Our debut performance as a company featured a collaboration with such guest artists as Ethan Hawke, Peter Dinklage, and Jonathan Marc Sherman. Also last year, At Play produced Generation ME (Atlantic), (a)broadness (Center Stage NY), and WORK (Ars Nova). At Play was was named the resident company of The 24 Hour Plays Off-Broadway and was also welcomed into The Exchange, an Off-Broadway company that fosters the creative development of emerging artists.

Pinky the Pig, and a few Hallelujahs

Bryn Manion has written a brilliant new play – Pinky the Pig, and a Few Hallelujahs – which follows Penelope, our young heroine, after she is abandoned and must find a way to raise herself. I will be directing a reading for Bryn and the Peculiar Works Project on July 13th at 7pm.
Details here –

The reading is part of their Midsummer Series, so you can check other exciting work as well. Including a new play by New Georges Artistic Director Susan Bernfield!
