HAMILTON's Nik Walker to Headline Staged Reading of SNAKE EYES

An admirer of the "In-Yer-Face" theatre sensibilities, Alex Rafala brutally depicts the desperation inherent to impending failure in his disturbing new play Snake Eyes.

Snake Eyes follows a duo of down-and-outers who, by the end of the play, are forced to weigh their morals against their dreams, deciding how far they are willing to descend in order to succeed. Stew and Edmonia, the protagonists, are both stricken with poverty and hopelessly addicted to huffing paint thinner. Stew, the more delusional of the two, confuses his obsessive ambition to be a filmmaker with the talent necessary to achieve that goal - talent he undoubtedly lacks. Despite her protests, Edmonia is unable to sway Stew toward a more realistic job that could propel them out of financial strife. Upward mobility seems to be a grim impossibility... Until the phone rings.

There will be two, invitation only, presentations on Monday, June 5th at The Physics Theater at the Times Square Arts Center (300 W. 43rd St.).

Snake Eyes is directed by Joe Ricci and features the talents of Nik Walker (Hamilton, Motown the Musical), Madeleine James (Indigo), Robert Turano (A View from the Bridge, Law & Order), Darcie Siciliano (He's with Me) and Matthew Van Gessel. Snake Eyes will prove to be a darkly hilarious and bloody affair.

The readings will take place on Monday, June 5th, 2017 at 3pm and 7pm at The Physics Theater, 300, W. 43rd St. For more information, email snakeeyesnewplay@gmail.com or visit www.facebook.com/SnakeEyesPlay.
