Columbia Stages' PRIVATE POLICY Begins 4/26
Alessandra Most's PRIVATE POLICY a circus in two acts will receive its world premiere at the Pershing Square Signature Center in the Studio Theatre April 26 - 29. The work will be presented as part of the Columbia University School of the Arts New Plays Now Festival. Jill Harrison will direct the production. This play is mentored by Marsha Norman.
PRIVATE POLICY a circus in two acts centers on Susan, a Senator's wife, who finds herself in the center of a media tailspin as she navigates the allegations of her husband's violent affair. As she tries to maintain normalcy for her family, she quickly realizes that a life in politics holds much more treachery underneath the surface than she thought. In a public life, can a marriage ever prevail over the media?
The creative team includes Jenn Haltman (producer/casting director), Tom Snyder (production manager/technical director), David Todaro (lighting design), Daniel Kontz (sound design), Summer Lee Jack (costume design), Aaron Ethan Green (scenic coordinator), Amber Emory (stage manager/assistant director) and Hilary Kissinger (assistant producer/assistant director).
