Rosendorf One Productions to Present Christopher B. Latro's ABSOLUTION


Rosendorf One Productions will present three world-premiere, commercial Off-Broadway productions by up-and-coming playwright - and New York native - Christopher B. Latro, beginning with the new dark comedy "Absolution" set to begin performances December 1 prior to an official press opening of December 10 at St. Luke's Theatre (308 West 46th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues) in Manhattan.

Latro's "The Frugal Repast" will premiere April 2, 2015 and run through May 23, 2015 and his play "Devoted Dreams" will premiere May 27, 2015 and run through July 4, 2015, both at Theatre Row's Beckett Theatre (410 West 42nd Street) in Manhattan.

All three plays ("Absolution," "The Frugal Repast," and "Devoted Dreams") will be directed by British director Anna Bamberger (Theatre Collection's "Tender is the Night," London).

Christopher B. Latro's dark comedy "Absolution," is the story of two bankers, their lovers, and the things they love the most: money, power, and satisfaction. As their fast-paced games unfold, a thrilling spiral of ambition, love and betrayal unravels.

The cast of "Absolution" features Becca Ballenger ("The Hero"), Pedro Carmo, Katrina Ferguson ("Family Running for Mr. Whippy") and Ethan Saks ("The History Boys").

Design team is: Lauren Mills (set design), Michael Alan Stein (costume design), Jamie Roderick (lighting design), and Samuel Godin (sound design).

Christopher B. Latro is a graduate of NYU having majored in History and Journalism. His plays have received staged readings at the Southwark Playhouse, Hampstead Theatre in London and the Harold Clurman Laboratory Theater Company in New York.

Originally coming from a fine arts background, Anna Bamberger trained at Stella Adler Studio in New York City. Her acting took her to acclaimed London performances of Rosendorf One's and SOT Stage's productions of "Blood Wedding" and "The Shape of Things." Her directorial work has encompassed a collaboration with distinguished Theatre Collection and Victor Sobchak in London where they worked together on such classic pieces as "The Idiot," "Tender is the Night" and "An Inspector Calls."
