Photo Coverage: Meet the Company of Vineyard Theatre's TOO MUCH SUN

TOO MUCH SUN - the newest play by Nicky Silver - will be given its world-premiere production this spring at the Vineyard Theatre (108 E. 15 St.) starring the Tony Award-winning actress Linda Lavin, joined by Ken Barnett, Richard Bekins, Matt Dellapina, Matt Dickson andJennifer Westfeldt, it has been announced by Douglas Aibel, The Vineyard's Artistic Director, and Sarah Stern, Co-Artistic Director.Mark Brokaw directs the production, scheduled to begin previews May 1 prior to an official opening night on May 18. The cast just met the press and you can check out full photo coverage below!

TOO MUCH SUN reunites Ms. Lavin, Messrs. Silver and Brokaw along with The Vineyard, where Mr. Silver's acclaimed play THE LYONS debuted in 2012 prior to its transfer to Broadway, earning Ms. Lavin her 6th Tony nomination. Simultaneous with her starring role in Too Much Sun, Ms. Lavin appears this spring in the film A SHORT HISTORY OF DECAY - written and directed by Michael Maren and co-starring Harris Yulin - opening in theaters May 16.

In Too Much Sun, Ms. Lavin portrays Audrey Langham, a celebrated actress who unravels completely while preparing for a new production of MEDEA. With nowhere else to go, she descends upon her married daughter for a summer by the sea. She is not, however, greeted with confetti and champagne. Her arrival sets off a chain of events alternately hilarious, harrowing and unforgettable.
