Photo Coverage: Indian Blood Opening Night

bThe new A.R. Gurney play Indian Blood, presented by Primary Stages, opened at 59E59 Theaters (59 E. 59th St., between Park and Madison Avenues) on August 9th after beginning previews on July 25th; the play runs through September 2nd.

The show, billed as a "witty, warm and thoroughly delightful comedy about family and coming-of-age," concerns "Young Eddie (who) uses his Indian ancestry as a cause and an excuse for his adolescent attacks on the genteel world around him. Was it his ties to the Seneca tribe or his talent as a budding artist that caused his privileged world to turn upside down?" The play stars Matthew Arkin, Jeremy Blackman, Jack Gilpin, Rebecca Luker, Katherine McGrath, John McMartin, Charles Socarides, and Pamela Payton-Wright. Gurney is the acclaimed playwright of works such as Sylvia, The Dining Room and Love Letters.
