STAGE TUBE: Wild Root Company Previews ROOM AT THE END OF THE HALL Workshop

The highly-anticipated March 2014 Manhattan workshop performances of Rocco Natale's "powerful" new drama ROOM AT THE END OF THE HALL gets just a bit more exciting with the release of this haunting new teaser from the workshop's presenter. Tickets for the workshop presentations are now available at www.WildRoot.org. Check out a trailer for the project below!

The Wild Root Company, a non-profit New York City-based production endeavor committed to cultivating and presenting bold news works of theatre and film from emerging playwrights and screenwriters, will present a series of fully staged workshop performances of ROOM AT THE END OF THE HALL March 6-8, 2014 at the Fourth Street Theatre in Manhattan.

Drama Desk nominee Claybourne Elder (Broadway's Bonnie and Clyde, Tennessee Williams' One Arm) who currently stars as Pete on the CW's "The Carrie Diaries" and Sean Hudock (Titan Theatre's A Midsummer Night's Dream, "Private Romeo") will play estranged brothers Malky and Doug respectively in the March workshop presentations of the two-hander. Ross Evans (Broadway's Beautiful, Venus in Fur) will direct with scenic design by Edward T. Morris (Yale Rep's Stones In His Pockets). Katie Chew will Stage Manage. The ROOM AT THE END OF THE HALL creative team also includes Kaitlin Paul, Chris Vongsawat and Stephanie Cowan.

Tickets for the March workshop presentations are now available through The Wild Root Company's website at www.WildRoot.org.

ROOM AT THE END OF THE HALL transports audiences to the late night shore of a weathered lake home on Cape Cod where estranged brothers Doug and Malky have returned for the first time in years to bury the ashes of their recently deceased caretaker. But tonight, a simple act of closure unearths the haunting remains of a troubled past and an unsettling force that must be reckoned with before daybreak.

Hailed as a "gripping and moving, powerful family drama" by the Connecticut Post, ROOM AT THE END OF THE HALL played to strong response in invited industry readings of the work in early 2013 at the Creative Center at Manhattan Theatre Club. The play was previously named a semi-finalist at the Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference and at the Premiere Stages Festival.

The Wild Root Company is a New York City-based production endeavor committed to cultivating and presenting bold and challenging new works of theatre and film from emerging playwrights and screenwriters. The company launched in January 2014 with a reading of Daniel Mitura's screenplay adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Beautiful and Damned to benefit the Ali Forney Center for Homeless LGBTQ Youth. The evening was directed by two-time Drama Desk nominee Ed Sylvanus Iskandar and featured a cast of 17 including Tony and Drama Desk Award winner Dick Latessa, Tony Award nominee Zach Grenier, Genevieve Angelson and Zachary Spicer. The Wild Root Company is a fiscally sponsored project of Fractured Atlas. More information about the company's previous work and upcoming projects can be found at www.WildRoot.org.
