This summer, FOGLIGHT will present the World Premiere of NOTICE ME, the new play by acclaimed playwright Blair Singer (Matthew Modine Saves the Alpacas, Meg's New Friend, Placement, TV's "Weeds" "Monk" & "Book of Daniel") Off-Broadway July 19th through August 1st.

Directed by Sofia Alvarez, NOTICE ME tells the tale of four San Fernando Valley teenagers desperate to be noticed in the morass of our contemporary 24/7 media culture. Like sound in a vacuum, their voices cry out unheard in the barren landscape of suburbia.

The production will star Jason Shelton, Annabel LaLonde , Jake Green, and Susan Spratt. The design team includes James Bolenbaugh (scenic design) Eric Southern (lighting design), Daniel Tierney (original music and sound design) and Justine Siwula (costume design).

NOTICE ME will begin previews at The Wild Project ( 195 East 3rd St - between Ave A and Ave B) on Monday, July 19th in preparation for a Wednesday, July 21st opening. Its strictly limited engagement will perform through Sunday, August 1st.

Notice Me will perform evenings at 8pm (*note: Sunday, July 25th is dark)
