Anna Ziegler's A DELICATE SHIP Opens Tonight at The Playwrights Realm


The Playwrights Realm presents the New York Premiere of A Delicate Ship by Anna Ziegler, directed by Margot Bordelon. The production runs now through September 12, 2015, officially opening tonight, August 27, 2015, at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater (416 W. 42nd Street, NYC).

The cast features Matt Dellapina (Nicky Silver's Too Much Sun at the Vineyard Theatre) as Sam, Miriam Silverman (Sheila Callaghan's Everything You Touch at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater) as Sarah and Drama Desk Award winner Nick Westrate (Harvey Fierstein's Casa Valentina at Manhattan Theatre Club) as Nate.

It's Christmas Eve, and Sarah and Sam are celebrating like New Yorkers: flirting over wine and debating the nature of existential suffering. Then there is a knock on the door, and Sarah's childhood friend Nate stands at the threshold. And suddenly suffering becomes a whole lot less sexy. A kaleidoscopic look at one night in New York City that changes the lives of three people forever.

The design team includes Reid Thompson (Scenic Design), Sydney Maresca (Costume Design), Nicole Pearce (Lighting Design) and Palmer Hefferan (Sound Design). Alyssa K. Howard is the Production Stage Manager and Will Rucker is the Assistant Stage Manager.

A DELICATE SHIP is The Playwrights Realm's second Alumni Production, which is dedicated to mounting new works from their "Alumni Playwrights," the family of playwrights the company has previously produced. The Realm first produced Alumna Anna Ziegler's play Dov and Ali in 2009.
