Cast and Creative Team Announced for Essential Theatre Group's ZURICH, NEW YORK Play Cycle
"Zurich, New York" is a cycle of three new plays by three playwrights: "Repast" by Lindsay Joy, "Rocks" by Charlotte Miller and "When You Go" by Alex Riad. Each play takes place on the same day on a dock in Zurich: a fictional lake-side town in upstate New York and will be performed at The Tank (on 151 West 46th Street) from May 16-31.
In "Repast", Celia and Frank have come back home for their father's funeral; they're not the same people that grew up here. "Rocks" introduces two members of the notably strange Emmons clan: Emmet and Emmi. They are opening a souvenir rock shop on the banks of the lake, desperately trying to escape their limbo of existence. "When You Go" ends the day when Josh, Mike, Becca and Clark get together for one last night before one of them leaves Zurich for New York City. A night of final goodbyes becomes a hotbed for expressing what's been boiling below the surface. Life is cyclical. What will you do to change it?
The cast features *Gillian Glasco and Neil Tyrone Pritchard in Repast; *Chris Bellant, *Sevrin Anne Mason and *Jelena Stupljanin in Rocks; Evan Hall, Kate Lydic, Brian Reisman and *Timothy Weinert in When You Go. (*appearing courtesy of Actors' Equity Association)
