Invisible Theatre Presents Final Performance of FAULT LINES at The Dorothy Strelsin Theatre, 12/19
The Invisible City Theatre Company presents the World Premiere of FAULT LINES - a new play by Invisible City company member Rebecca Louise Miller inspired by the infamous Polly Klaas kidnapping that rocked the United States in the 1990's. Previews begin December 9 prior to an official press opening of December 10 at the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre in the Abingdon Theatre Complex (312 West 36th Street - between 8th and 9th Avenues) in Manhattan.
Inspired by the infamous Polly Klaas kidnapping that rocked the United States in the 1990's, Rebecca Louise Miller's new play FAULT LINES - which was a semi-finalist at the 2009 O'Neill Playwrights Conference and a finalist for the Lark's Playwrights Week - concerns Jessica Cohn, a victims' rights activist returning to her roots to memorialize her childhood friend, Nina, who was kidnapped from a birthday party and murdered more than twenty years ago. Hounded by the press, Jessica finds herself holed up inside the home of Bethany, another friend of the victim who has, over the years, become devoutly religious. The triangle is complete with the arrival of Kat, a pill-popping alcoholic. Once together, these three women toil with the past and their ruined friendships; each haunted by uncertainty over what they could have and should have done differently.
Directed by Invisible City Artistic Director David Epstein, FAULT LINES design team is Joe W. Novak (Lighting Design) and Ira Haskell (Set Design).
