Eastwind Theatre Company is pleased to announce the world premiere of Monkey Trick, written and directed by Brad Saville. Monkey Trick, a terse tale of love, loss, and desperation runs Thursday through Saturday at 8pm, from February 28th through March 29th at the Producer's Club's Sonnet Theater. Tickets are $30.00 and available through Smarttix.com or by Calling 212-868-4444. Check out eastwindtheatrecompany.com for more information.

Saville's hard-boiled Monkey Trick tells the story of two successful New York City drug dealers and the woman they both love. Garrett and Wilson are in trouble: the police have raided Wilson's house on the very night that Garrett has broken up with his girlfriend, Wendy. When Wilson seeks refuge in their apartment, the three old friends feel the world closing in on them, as they close in on each other. Unsure who to trust or how to proceed, all three look for a way out and are forced to deal with the choices they've made and ultimately the people they've become.

The ensemble cast features Eastwind Company Members: Penny Bittone (Two Rooms in Davis, 365 plays, 365 Days) Anne Fidler (Two Rooms in Davis; The Sustainable Future), and David Marcus (Artfuckers; The Sustainable Future; Margo Veil: An Entertainment). All three are veterans of Blue Box Productions' "Sticky" series for which Saville has written several short plays. Saville penned and directed Eastwind's maiden production of Two Rooms in Davis, which enjoyed a succesful run last season. He is also the director of the award winning feature-film, Williamsburg. Williamsburg will be released Summer, 2008.

Eastwind Theater Company was founded in 2007 by Artistic Director, Penny Bittone and Managing Director, Brad Saville, in order to engage and serve our employers, the audience, while celebrating and exploring the aesthetic of the New American Theatre. Eastwind's first production, Two Rooms in Davis, enjoyed a 24-show run at the Richmond Sheppard Theatre, in September of 2007.
