DUMPSTER FIRE Announces Official Cast List For 2018 She NYC Summer Theater Festival
Emily Comisar's New Play Dumpster Fire has an official final cast for the 2018 She NYC Summer Theater Festival.
On January first, Emily wakes up finally ready to admit that, despite her best efforts, there is still something missing and she doesn't know where to begin. With the help of her mother, her friends, her local librarian, and a slew of historical figures who magically appear and then disappear just as quickly, Emily discovers that she's not alone-in fact, she's far from it.
Dumpster Fire is Emily Comisar's first play in She NYC, but Comisar's work have appeared in Lone Star Theatre Company, Caps Lock Theatre, New York Madness, and Shiyr Productions. Ines Braun, a stage and film director from Argentina, is directing this summer's production of Dumpster Fire. The fierce cast of this quirky self discovery play includes Jackie Maruschak (La Mama, The Signature Theatre, The Barrow Group), Cassandra Nwokah, Patryce Williams (Freedom Train National Tour, The Barrow Group, Joe's Pub), Ashley Grombol, Laura Ann Peterson, Jacqueline Nwabueze, and Erin Capistrano.
