Jonathan Larson Grant Recipient Sara Cooper'S THINGS I LEFT ON LONG ISLAND Set to Play New York International Fringe Festival
Roadie Soadie Productions will present the world premiere of Things I Left On Long Island, a new play by 2014 Jonathan Larson Grant recipient Sara Cooper in the 2014 New York International Fringe Festival.
The play is written by Cooper (Transport Group's The Memory Show) and will be directed by Noah Himmelstein (Andrew Lippa's I Am Harvey Milk). It is the fourth collaboration between Cooper and Himmelstein, having most recently worked together on Loving Leo at the Weston Playhouse (music by Zach Redler).
The cast includes Lindsay Goranson, Susanna Hari, Jennifer Mello, Michael S. Rehse, and Elysia Segal.
When 28-year-old Marny finds a lump in her breast, she uses it as an excuse to pretend she isn't flunking out of adulthood and moves home to Long Island to live with her mother. As she vies with her family for the audience's attention, Marny must either succumb to the whims of a family in crisis or take back her life-and her play.
Things I Left On Long Island has been developed with a grant from the Queens Arts Council as well as developmental readings at Dixon Place and Theater for the New City.
Costume design by Matthew Pachtman (Book of Mormon), scenic design by Brian Dudkiewicz (The Realistic Joneses), lighting design by Mike Megliola (God of Carnage), graphic and web design by Jim Yang. The production stage manager is Arysbells Figueredo (The Memory Show), and the executive producer is Gregory Jacobs-Roseman (Save The Date).
Performances will be at FringeNYC's venue #18: The Steve & Marie Sgouros Theater (Players Loft) at 115 MacDougal Street, 3rd floor. Performance dates are scheduled for Aug. 9 at 6pm; Aug. 12 at 9pm; Aug. 14 at 4:30pm; Aug 17 at 1:45pm; Aug. 21 at 9pm; Aug. 24 at 1:45pm.
