Hanging Cow Productions to Stage New Play AN ARRANGEMENT OF EUPHORIC ILLUSIONS
Hanging Cow Productions will present AN ARRANGEMENT OF EUPHORIC ILLUSIONS, a new play by Elise Maurine Milner, May 9th-15th, 2016 (Mon-Fri 8pm curtain and Sat/Sun 2p and 7pm) at The American Theatre for Actors, 314 West 54th Street, 4th Fl Sargent Theatre, NYC.
Between truth and fantasy lies the safety of illusions...
AN ARRANGEMENT OF EUPHORIC ILLUSIONS is told from two perspectives and distinct narratives from each point of view, (presented at times through scenes of their fantasies and other scenes as their reality) newly engaged couple Nathaniel and Gemini who though have an intense love for each other, also have an underlying, stirring nervousness for nuptials in their own unique ways. On the eve of Nate's 30th birthday, an especially contemplative time for him, a dinner party with friends ensues, and a complicated secret is eventually revealed. Not only must Gemini and Nate navigate through their hopes, fears, and insecurities throughout the play, but also must their beloved friends who are closest to them. Everyone is forced to take an honest and raw look at what they really want and who they really are, ultimately revealing that perception is completely subjective, ever changing, and unique for each individual. They learn that the complicated journey of ALL relationships, not just the one between them, can cause dire consequences for everyone else in their lives if expectations precede personal truth, and the illusion of it. Will, what they already HAVE in front of them withstand newly revealed discoveries, or will their desire for their "alleged" need for rigorous honesty get the best of them, their relationship, and their friendships? Both comedic at times as much as it is provocative and heart wrenching, sensual, and dramatic, this play takes a solid look at the gamut of human relationships and tackles the many facets of life and its challenges and rewards.
"This play is impeccably balanced with drama, hilarity, sexuality, and provocation. Layered with rich characters and meaningful dialogue, this is another sure fire HIT for Elise Milner, playwright, who truly understands human emotion and condition." - Nicole Willett, professor and novelist
The stellar cast features Kristin Pilgreen, Alex Dabertin, Denzel Lloyd Williams, Denis Ooi, Chelsea Blaney, and Danielle Barrett.

This show will prove to be no different, an emotional roller coaster ride complete with plot twists and plenty of post-show instigation for discussion!
