Cast Announced for ONE WAY TO PLUTO! at 13th Street Playhouse
Seanie Sugrue, called by Patrick Hickey of ReviewFix as "one of the most intriguing and witty playwrights in New York City today" has gathered an impressive team of arts journeymen for ONE WAY TO PLUTO!, the next in his riveting Punk Theater journey.
Each is a familiar face on stage and screen - large and small. Each understanding the energy needed to present a new work in a new art form.

ONE WAY TO PLUTO! premiering at the legendary 13th Street Playhouse is an existential journey through the life of Peter Cooper, a hostile persona struggling to make sense of his transgender dysphoria (the misery of feeling you are in the wrong body).
Comfort comes through a drug-fueled psychedelic journey to "Pluto" and back with Dwight, a chronic vagabond, and from an act of criminal desperateness, he befriends one of Pluto's "moons." This story is a restless exploration of one man's search to find meaning and delves into the fight against personal delusion, addiction, and the trepidation of inferiority.
