Henri and Sonia are putting their son to bed when Hubert and Ines arrive for dinner...a day earlier than expected. Yasmina Reza's play, elegantly translated by Christopher Hampton, blends cruel observations with high comedy in a hilarious and poignant examination of our most personal intimacies and private longings. We see three versions of the same socially hapless evening in which the characters change subtly each time, providing a dramatically different outcome for each.
The cast features Dominic Comperatore (Broadway's A View from the Bridge); Leah Curney (The American Plan at MTC); Claire Curtis-Ward (The Enchantment at HERE Arts Center); James Patrick Nelson (Ivanov, Three Sisters at Classic Stage Company).
The design team includes Brian Dudkiewicz (scenic design); Paul Hudson (lighting design); Genevieve V. Beller (costume design); Janet Bentley (sound design); and Abigail Stuckey (prop design). The production stage manager is Lindsey Hurley. The technical director is TJ Craftsman. The casting is by TBD Casting (Stephanie Yankwitt and Margaret Dunn).
Yasmina Reza (playwright) Yasmina Reza is a playwright and novelist whose works have been translated into more than thirty languages and include "Art" and God of Carnage, both winners of the Tony Award for Best Play. The film adaptation of the latter, Carnage, was directed by Roman Polanski in 2011. She has written six books, including Dawn Dusk or Night: A Year with Nicolas Sarkozy (Knopf, 2008). She lives in Paris.
Jerry Heymann (director) is an award-winning director. Select credits include: Call Me Charlie with Danny DeVito (La Mama), My Daddy's Serious American Gift (Tiffany Theatre in LA), A Country For Old Men (American Stage Company), Three (Ensemble Studio Theatre), and Demeter's Lost Daughter (St. Clement's Theatre). He holds a PhD and MFA from Carnegie-Mellon University and is a proud member of SSDC. For NLTP: Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen, Arthur and Esther, and No One Loves Us Here.
Founded by Sarah Norris and Michael Aguirre, New Light Theater Project (NLTP) is an ensemble-driven theater company that strives to capture the Little Theater Movement (artistry over commerce; producing new and classic works) in the NYC indie theater community. To accomplish this, NLTP places the ensemble at the center of the process, where all members, regardless of artistic role, bear weight and voice to the stories selected to tell. NLTP devises and develops new work, brings classical texts and revivals to life, and creates a spirit of community for all theatrical collaborations. NLTP illuminates other artists and companies through a network of shared resources, such as The Darkroom Series, while cultivating theatrical partnerships around the world.
