Photo Flash: First Look at NOT EVEN THE GOOD THINGS Opening July 16th At Theatre Row
NOT EVEN THE GOOD THINGS, a new play by Joseph Scott Ford opens tomorrow, Tuesday, July 16th at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street) for a limited run through Saturday, July 27th. Replete with attempted infidelity, weird religion, gimlets and a ghost (?), the play will have a limited run through July 27th. Kelsey Claire directs a cast of seven in this high-octane, heartfelt and delightfully bizarre production. Not Even the Good Things is produced by Tamra Paselk.
NOT EVEN THE GOOD THINGS is a dark comedy where a millennial getaway falls apart in the presence of the ghost of a young girl that only one character -- despite his best efforts -- is able to see.
The play deals with a group of six 20-something-year-old friends who gather in a mountain cabin to enjoy a well-deserved vacation. It's just that they can't seem to enjoy anything, really. What is supposed to be a fun and carefree evening evolves into a drunken circus of attempted infidelity, nonsense, and weird religion. This all takes place under the watchful gaze of a young girl who only shows herself to one person, while he steadily and hilariously loses his grip on reality in the company of his oblivious friends. The nature of shame, sexuality, loyalty, intoxication, privilege and faith are all explored in this achingly funny new play.
Featured in the cast are Collette Astle (Hysterical Women), Victoria Janicki (Fun Home), Sea McHale (Marvin's Room), Serena Parrish (Fun Home), Stephon Pettway (Ollie and Molly Can't Get Arrested, Mickey Roberts (debut) and Allie Trimm (Enter Laughing/"30 Rock").
Costume Design is by Oscar Noel Fitzpatrick and lighting design is by Alexander Le Vaillant Freer.
