Russian Play Terrorism will Premiere at the Clurman Theatre on May 23rd

The Presnyakov Brothers' Terrorism will open Off-Broadway at the Clurman Theatre on May 23rd.

The New Group and The Play Company will present the American premiere of the politicall- relevant Russian work by the Siberian playwrights, Vladimir and Oleg. Directed by Will Frears and translated by Sasha Dugdale, it will run through June 26th after it begins previews on May 9th.

Terrorism concerns the consequences of a bomb threat in an airport over the course of six seemingly unconnected scenes. The play was written pre-9/11, but it was first produced at London's Court Theatre in 2003.

Elizabeth Marvel is prominent among a cast that includes Adam Alexi-Malle (Titanic), Alex Draper (Golden Boy), Laura Esterman (The Show Off), Anna George (Sakharam Binder), Darren Goldstein (Intimate Apparel), Daniel Oreskes (Aida, Roar), Lola Pashalinski (Fortune's Fool) and R.E. Rodgers (Dedication, "Oz"). David Korins (set), Sarah Beers (costumes), Marcus Doshi (lighting) and Bart Fasbender (sound) are on the design team of the production.

Marvel is the critically-acclaimed actress whose off-Broadway credits include the New York Theatre Workshop revival of Hedda Gabler, Woody Allen's A Second-Hand Memory at the Atlantic Theatre, An American Daughter, Alice in Bed, Therese Raquin, Misalliance, A Streetcar Named Desire, Lydie Breeze, Parts I & II, Henry V, King Lear. She has appeared on television's The District, and recently portrayed the eponymous role in Antigone at Los Angeles Theatre Works.

Frears is perhaps best known for directing 2003's Omnium Gatherum at the Variety Arts Theatre. Other credits include God Hates the Irish or the Ballad of Armless Johnny at the Rattlestick Theatre, the world premiere of Lucy Thurber's Where We're Born, Jessica Goldberg's Get What You Need at the Atlantic Theater Company, Rebeck's The Water's Edge at Williamstown Theatre Festival and the Chicago premiere of Stephen Adly Guirgis' drama Our Lady of 121st Street at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company,

The Clurman Theatre is located at 410 West 42 Street,
