Babel Theatre Project's (Geordie Broadwater, Artistic Director, Jeremy Blocker, Producing Director) World Premiere of A Great Place to Be From, by Norman Lasca, directed by Geordie Broadwater. A Great Place to Be From will begin performances on Thursday, September 4; opening on Monday, September 8 and will run through September 27 at The Kraine Theatre (85 East 4th Street).

In heat like this, the world gets louder and rules don't apply. You can't trust anyone and sometimes, suddenly, everything becomes clear. The Midwest is struck by a monstrous heat wave -- the kind that makes cows keel over and chickens explode. In A Great Place to Be From, four people tell the stories of how their lives change forever in ways so absurd, tragic and transporting that they only make sense through a haze of scorching sun bouncing off the asphalt.

The cast includes: Kim Martin Cotton (Mermaid, States of Undress), Matthew Johnson (American Buffalo, Oleanna, Camino Real - Edinburgh Fringe), Jacques Roy (NY: Julius Caesar, The Dumb Waiter), Andrew Zimmerman (Babel's Stomp and Shout, Medea on the Argo/Medea in Iolcos).
