Pete McElligott's IN A LITTLE ROOM Starts Tonight at the wild project

Ten Bones Theatre Company will present the World Premiere of Pete McElligott's dark comedy In a Little Room, directed by Patrick Vassel at The Wild Project (195 East 3rd Street between Avenue A and Avenue B), tonight, September 9, through September 24 with performances Tuesday through Saturday at 7:30pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2pm.

Tickets ($15) are available online at www.artful.ly/store/events/12563. The performance will run approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission.

In a Little Room tells the story of two strangers trapped in the cold comforts of a hospital waiting room, feebly trying to restart their lives and failing fantastically as the hospital, possibly, burns down around them.

The cast will feature Jeb Kreager* (Obie Award winner for Oslo at Lincoln Center) and Luis-Daniel Morales (Tony Lindsay's Where Hearts Lie) with Lightning Design by Katy Atwell (The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui with Lyra Theater Company), Costume Design by Evan Prizant (Associate Designer on Sunday in the Park with George on Broadway), and Set & Graphics Design by Zachary Zirlin (graphic designer for Marvel on Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones on Netflix).
