Daniel Hubbard Makes Directorial Debut with Thomas Ward's New Comedy INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Now thru 3/9
Actor Daniel Hubbard is set to make his directorial debut with the New York premiere of INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Thomas Ward's new dark comedy about a stand-up comedian and a hotel desk clerk. Greyman Theatre Company's inaugural New York production begins performances today, Feb. 27 at The Tank and continues its limited run through March 9.
According to Greyman, "INTERNATIONAL FALLS explores what happens when a man who makes jokes about his own life meets someone who forces him to examine the truth behind them. Unhappy with his life and his marriage, yet touring the country trying to make people laugh, Tim meets Dee, an equally unhappy wife and mother working as a front desk receptionist at a hotel in International Falls, Minn. When they end up in bed together after his show, what begins as an unassuming one-night stand turns into an unexpected connection as two comedians, one burned out and one aspiring, discuss their insecurities, relationships, and comedy acts."
A fundraising campaign to mount the production was announced Nov. 14 and will be live through Jan. 7 at http://igg.me/at/internationalfalls/x/4780354.
Ward's other plays include KEEPING WATCH, GOING WITH JENNY (co-written with Sherry Jo Ward), and BINGE. He co-wrote the screenplay of the independent feature film SIRONIA starring Jeremy Sisto, Carrie Preston, and Tony Hale. As an actor, Ward was last seen in New York in THE UNSEEN Off-Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theatre.
