Paul Grellong's MANUSCRIPT Begins at Theatre Row Next Month

Cameron Clarke, Matthew Hansen and Kimberly Nordstrom will lead the cast of MANUSCRIPT, a dark comedy written by Paul Grellong and directed by Paige Fridell. Performances begin May 8, 2015 at Theatre Row.

Three college freshmen are partying in Brooklyn Heights before a fancy holiday ball. One of them runs to score drugs and returns with shocking news: their dealer has overdosed. Armed with a stack of papers that will change their lives forever, three friends will stop at nothing in a quest for revenge where deception rules, little is what it seems and no one can be trusted. The play hurtles towards a surprise ending that leaves everyone breathless.

Clarke has previously been seen in suburbia, Dead Man's Cell Phone, Boeing Boeing, Romeo & Juliet and The Servant of Two Masters. Hansen's New York credits include Living Dead in Denmark and Crimes of the Heart. Nordstrom's theatrical credits include Dog Sees God, Our House, Cactus Flower and Murder on the Nile and the films No Address, The Adventures of Pinocchio the Sperm, Infection and Hawkins Hill.

Fridell has previously directed Light At The End of Water Street and The Last Five Years. Scenic design is by Joseph Napolitano, a designer, creative director, and scenographer whose architectural collaboration have been seen in New York, Philadelphia, D.C., New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Las Vegas and abroad. Lighting design is by Cindy Shumsey, whose work has been seen at Joe's Pub, PS122, Madison Square Garden Theatre and the Westbury Music Fair and Symphony.

MANUSCRIPT is produced by Just Kidding Theatre Company, a non-profit organization whose mission is to create intimate theatrical productions that empower, educate and entertain. Previous productions include the critically-acclaimed Living Dead in Denmark by Qui Nguyen and Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead. They also host a new works reading series.
