The New York premiere of Owen Dunne's new play POSITIONS is presented Off-Broadway this fall through October 21 at Roy Arias Studio Theatre (300 W. 43 St.) in Manhattan. POSITIONS is presented by Steve Bakunas, Linda Lavin and The Red Barn Studio Theatre, where POSITIONS received its world-premiere this spring. Check out photos from opening night below!

The cast of POSITIONS includes Mike O'Neil, Michele Gagliano and Anna Stromberg. The play is directed by Mr. Bakunas.

POSITIONS is an entertaining and provocative look at sexual dysfunction in a marriage: when Leo and Hilary's union begins to fail in the bedroom, Leo suggests they re-engage by trying "52 positions"—a different one each week of the year. What transpires is both playful and menacing as tables are turned in a clash between romance and desire.

Located in Wilmington, NC, Red Barn Studio Theatre is a 50-seat theatre—a converted garage/warehouse—renovated and opened by husband-and-wife Mr. Bakunas and Ms. Lavin in 2007. The theatre has presented 15 productions over five seasons, including DRIVING MISS DAISY, DOUBT, I AM MY OWN WIFE, BOSTON MARRIAGE, THE TALE OF THE ALLERGIST'S WIFE, LOBBY HERO, GOD OF CARNAGE, RABBIT HOLE, and COLLECTED STORIES.

POSITIONS is Mr. Dunne's first play, Red Barn's first world-premiere and its first production to transfer to New York. Mr. Bakunas has directed Red Barn's productions of GOD OF CARNAGE, LOBBY HERO, THE TALE OF THE ALLERGIST'S WIFE and COLLECTED STORIES.

POSITIONS will perform Wednesdays through Fridays at 8 pm, Saturdays at 2 and 8 pm and Sundays at 3 pm. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by calling 212 957 8358. For more information, visit www.redbarnstudiotheatre.com.
