Casting Set For THE ANTELOPE PARTY, Beginning November 4 

After an acclaimed premiere in Chicago, Dutch Kills Theater (Temping, The Sister, The Providence of Neighboring Bodies) will present the New York Premiere of 2018 Weissberger Award for Playwrighting nominee THE ANTELOPE PARTY by Eric John Meyer.

It is directed by 2017 Lucille Lortel Award winner Jess Chayes (HOME/SICK, Half Moon Bay) with dramaturgy by Sarah Lunnie (What the Constitution Means to Me, Grand Horizons, Hillary and Clinton, A Doll's House Part 2). Previews were originally scheduled to begin March 19, 2020 at The Wild Project, but after a 19-month pandemic delay, previews will now begin November 4, 2021. Opening is slated for November 10.

In THE ANTELOPE PARTY, five friends gather weekly to revel in their love of the children's cartoon My Little Pony. But they soon find themselves caught between their innocent Brony role playing game and an increasingly dangerous outside world that keeps changing the rules. Eric John Meyer's comic drama wrestles with the importance of community and the dangers of our need to belong.

THE ANTELOPE PARTY will star Will Dagger (NYT Critic's Pick Among the Dead with Ma-Yi), Quinn Franzen (Threesome at 59E59), Lindsley Howard (Ed Iskander's The Mysteries at The Flea), Anna Ishida (Beowulf: A Thousand Years of Baggage), Edward Mawere (The New Group's one in two by Donja R. Love), and Caitlin Morris (Minor Character at The Public's Under the Radar). The production will feature sets by Yu-Hsuan Chen (Our Dear Dead Drug Lord, Nomad Motel), lighting by Cha See (What To Send Up When It Goes Down), sound by Asa Wember (Seagullmachine), costumes by Kate Fry (Burn This on Broadway), and props by Brian Bernhard (Leap and the Net Will Appear).

THE ANTELOPE PARTY is available from Broadway Play Publishing and selections from the play are featured in the 2019 editions of both The Best Women's Monologues and The Best Men's Monologues from Applause.

THE ANTELOPE PARTY runs November 4 - 21. Performances are Tuesday - Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm. The Wild Project is located at 195 E. 3rd Street between Aves A & B. Tickets are $35 at www.theantelope.party
