Amish Rave Drama RUMSPRINGA Extends At Green Room Thru 5/2

"RUMSPRINGA", the Amish rave drama written and directed by Peter Zinn has just extended its limited engagement at The Green Room Theatre at 45 Bleecker Street through Saturday, May 2nd. The play, which features Jim Boerlin, C.S. Drury, Kirsty Meares and Mickey Sumner, deals with a group of people facing their own lives during a Rumspringa rave in an Indiana cornfield. The dark comedy explores the desire in all of us to experience life outside our ‘normal' lives.

"Rumspringa", which was work-shopped at Chicago's Victory Gardens Theatre, at HB Studio and the Geraldine Page Salon in New York City, began previews on January 20th and opened officially off-Broadway on February 11th, 2008 as part of a double bill with "Sailor Man". "Rumspringa", is co-produced by GSP Enterprises, LLC and 45 Bleecker Street Theatre. (Rumspringa is the coming-of-age experience for Amish teenagers when they are permitted a period of experimentation and freedom from religious rules, including going to bars, drinking, taking drugs, driving cars, and dating non-Amish people. The term rumspringa is a literal translation of the Pennsylvania German expression, "running around.")
