JAILBAIT Runs At The Cherry Pit Through 4/25

The Cherry Pit (155 Bank Street), Cherry Lane Theatre's third and newest Off-Broadway venue presents the world-premiere production of Deirdre O'Connor's JAILBAIT--a new play about two teenaged girls and the men they meet when they pose as college students during a night out at a club in Boston. Suzanne Agins directs.

Running time approx. 90 minutes (no intermission). Performances of JAILBAIT run through April 25.

In JAILBAIT, two fifteen-year-old girls spend a night at a Boston club posing as college students. When the girls cross paths with two thirty-something men, they must decide how far they are willing to go while playing at adulthood.

The cast of JAILBAIT includes Kelly AuCoin (SOME MEN), Peter O'Connor (THE SEXUAL NEUROSES OF OUR PARENTS), Natalia Payne (ALIENS WITH EXTRAORDINARY SKILLS), and Wrenn Schmidt (CRAZY FOR THE DOG).

The production has scenic design by Kina Park, costume design by Rebecca Bernstein, lighting design by Pat Dignan and sound design by Daniel Kluger and Brandon Wolcott.

Playwright Deirdre O'Connor's other plays include HERO (Naked Angels), THE DEATH OF MAY McALLISTER, PENICILLIN, WHITE JESUS, THE ATTIC (St. Ann's Warehouse), and WEDNESDAY.

Director Suzanne Agins served as Artistic Associate at Williamstown Theatre Festival from 2005 to 2007. Recent projects include Charles Mee's BIG LOVE at Fordham University, Gordon Cox's WING IT and THE SECRET NARRATIVE OF THE PHONE BOOK, MADDY MANN'S CHURCH CAMP JAMBOREE at Dixon Place, and Ken Weitzman's SPIN MOVES.

JAILBAIT which was developed and presented as part of the Cherry Lane's Obie Award-winning Mentor Project 2008, mentored by celebrated playwright Michael Weller, proved a popular and durable success, breaking box office records for the program, and selling out nightly.
