Vincent Sessa's BODY OF WORDS Begins 1/1 at TNCVincent Sessa's BODY OF WORDS Begins 1/1 at TNC
by BWW News Desk - Dec 11, 2014

'Body of Words' by Vincent Sessa is set in a rented bungalow on a deserted stretch of beach on a summer night into morning. Two strangers meet -- a rugged, powerful middle-aged man and a young, athletic man who might be a student. A sexual contract is established between them but suspicion and violence ensue. Yet by morning an inseparable bond has joined the men together and they are changed forever. The play is evocative of the homecoming of Odysseus. The author, Vincent Sessa, is known for profoundly nuanced plays about men and women in personal, often political struggle. Theater for the New City will present the play's premiere run January 1 to 25, 2015, directed by John Michael DiResta. (more...)
