Photo Flash: First Look at YOUR MOTHER'S COPY OF THE KAMA SUTRA at Playwrights Horizons
Playwrights Horizons presents the World Premiere production of YOUR MOTHER'S COPY OF THE KAMA SUTRA, a new play by Kirk Lynn (Co-Artistic Director, Austin's Rude Mechanicals), directed by Obie Award winner Anne Kauffman (Detroit, Maple and Vine at PH; Belleville; This Wide Night; The Thugs), which began previews last weekend and opens Monday, April 21 for a limited engagement through May 11, 2014 at Playwrights Horizons' Peter Jay Sharp Theater (416 West 42nd Street). BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
The cast includes: Ismenia Mendes (A.R. Gurney's Family Furniture at The Flea), Maxx Brawer (Don't Go Gentle), Zoë Sophia Garcia (La Ruta), Rebecca Henderson (The Whale, The Retributionists at PH; Too Much, Too Much, Too Many), Will Pullen (Marie Antoinette) and Chris Stack (Marie Antoinette, Killers & Other Family).
Carla (Ms. Garcia) agrees to marry Reggie (Mr. Stack) on one condition: to break down any walls between them, they'll reenact their individual sexual histories with one another, good and bad, for better or worse. Years later, these stories bring unexpected hope to their household, now forced to confront those barriers a second time. Kirk Lynn's tough-love comedy navigates the boundaries of intimacy, finding startling empathy in the story of a father hell-bent on saving his family.
The production features scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by Tony Award winner Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Ben Stanton and original music and sound design by Daniel Kluger. Production Stage Manager is Vanessa Coakley.
