Next-In-Line Productions to Produce SOMEONE WHO'LL WATCH OVER ME at Gene Frankel Theatre, 8/29 - 9/6

Someone Who'll Watch Over Me focuses on the trials and tribulations of an Irishman, an Englishman and an American who are kidnapped and held hostage in a nondescript location in Lebanon. As the three men strive for survival, they also find themselves trying to overcome both their personal grudges towards one another, and their nationalistic differences, all under the watchful eyes and ears of their captors.

Someone Who'll Watch Over Me first opened at Hampstead Theatre in London in 1992, then on to the West End. It was produced in New York City at the Booth Theatre, with the cast of Stephen Rea, James McDaniel, and Alec McCowen (later Michael York). The play was nominated for Best Play by multiple organizations including The Writer's Guild Award, Oliver Award, Tony Award, and went on to win the New York Drama Critics' Award for Best Foreign Play.
