SAD INDIE LOVE SONG Comes to New York International Fringe

As part of The New York International Fridge Festival, The Dionysian is proud to present the world premiere of Steve McMahon's sad indie love song for a four-performance run at IRT, August 31 - September 9, 2017.

sad indie love song is a new short work by Scottish playwright Steve McMahon, accepted through open submission to the 2017 New York International Fridge Festival. sad indie love song is an off-beat love story about relationships, love and a fridge. Chris and Cat love each other, but then Cat goes missing. Or does she, as there is another Cat in her place, who is the same but totally different. Or is it the same Cat? And there is a fridge involved, somehow.

Director Benjamin Viertel says "What I love about Steve's play is that it asks more questions than it answers. It's been such a thrill to work on, since the actors and I have been able to be so creative in defining our world, the characters and the journey they go on. It's a very unique, mysterious, vibrant and cryptic play, but also deeply honest, as it looks at lost love in alternative dimensions".

sad indie love song is directed by Benjamin Viertel, and features Natalie Donahue McMahon, Declan Maloney Drummond, and Shawna Wigney. Paul Hudson joins as Lighting Designer, and LiAnne Kennedy as Producer.

sad indie love song will be performed as part of a double bill (Series B) with Daniel Talbott's Nick and Zoe, as part of the inaugural New York Fridge Festival, a multidisciplinary theater festival this summer. The schedule is as follows:
