Firehouse Theatre Opens ANY GIVEN MONDAY Tonight

Firehouse Theatre Project has announced the third play of its American Inferno season, Any Given Monday by Bruce Graham, "the dean of Philadelphia dramatists" (Philadelphia Inquirer). Directed by Shanea N. Taylor and a proud part of the Acts of Faith festival, Any Given Monday runs February 14th through March 9th at Firehouse Theatre, opening tonight, February 15th. Any Given Monday is recommended for mature audiences.

David Zimmerman plays Lenny, a middle-aged public school teacher, good father and loving husband. But when his wife, leaves him for a smooth-talking jerk who builds Walmarts and his daughter Sarah has a crisis of faith, Lenny's life turns upside down. While Lenny tries to console himself with pizza and Monday Night Football, his best friend Mickey thinks he has the perfect solution to his marital problems. This biting comedy discusses morality and religion, Old Testament vs. New, the relevancy of Jewish law and the consequences of infidelity. Praised as "wickedly smart" by Nytheatre.com, Graham's work twists and turns, leading the audience through this poignant, funny and emotionally intense play.

Both an acclaimed playwright (Coyote on a Fence, The Philly Fan) and a Hollywood screenwriter (Dunston Checks In, Anastasia), Bruce Graham is considered to be Philadelphia's "people-pleasing David Mamet, builder of stories that suck you in and make you want to stay" (Philadelphia Inquirer). Graham is also known for his award-winning play Something Intangible (Outstanding New Play - Barrymore Awards). Firehouse was one of the first theaters to produce Something Intangible during the 2010-11 season, and as a result were included in the published Dramatist's script.
