ROOF-TOP JOY Set for The New City's Dream Up Festival
by BWW News Desk - Aug 5, 2015

'Roof-Top Joy' is a one-act comedic drama written by Andrea Fulton and directed by Jared Reinmuth about the way past and present can collide to jeopardize the future. Witiswood and Jah-niece moved on up to a new luxury high rise condo in downtown Brooklyn and had no idea their demons could come to haunt them. Will this collision between past and present result in A Joyful Noise or will all hell break loose and destroy their little slice of heaven? The entire play takes place in various locations in the condo and we get to know characters like strong-willed and suspicious doorman Uncle Thomas and mysterious Allsgood Breckenridge, who is reportedly the son of the building's owner. Not everyone is what they seem and our job is to peel away the persona each has carefully constructed. When Witiswood and Allsgood become the keepers of one another's true identities, they are forced to help each other in the fear of their secret pasts being unveiled. However, the truth can only be concealed for so long. The play will have its world premiere September 13 to 20 in Theater for the New City's 2015 Dream Up Festival. (more...)
