Photos: SoHo Rep Presents ORANGE, HAT AND GRACE

Off-Broadway's eleven-time Obie Award-winning Soho Rep - which the New York Times calls the "downtown powerhouse" - will kick off its 2010-2011 season with the much anticipated world-premiere of ORANGE, HAT & GRACE by Gregory S. Moss (punkplay) and directed by Soho Rep Artistic Director Sarah Benson (BLASTED, THAT FACE) with previews beginning September 15 prior to an official press opening of September 23 at Soho Rep (46 Walker Street).

In a cabin in the woods, aging Orange finds her orderly life upended by a feral suitor and the reappearance of a figure from her past who is coming home for a final visit. Equal parts American gothic and unlikely romance, ORANGE, HAT & GRACE is a funny, fierce and provocative inquiry into our relationship with the natural world. Melding inventive language and startling theatrical imagery, ORANGE, HAT & GRACE begins the new season at Soho Rep with this premiere play.

Directed by Soho Rep Artistic Director Sarah Benson, the cast of ORANGE, HAT & GRACE features Matthew Maher (MOLLY's DREAM at Soho Rep, upcoming film IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY), Stephanie Roth Haberle (CHAIR), and Reyna de Courcy (Playwrights Realm's DREAMS OF THE WASHER KING, MONSTROSITY).

ORANGE, HAT & GRACE design team is Rachel Hauck (set design), Matt Frey (lighting design), Matt Tierney (sound design), David Hyman (costume designer), Jon Carter (hair & makeup design), and J. David Brimmer (fight director).

ORANGE, HAT & GRACE was written in Soho Rep's 2008/09 Writer/Director Lab.
