PINK! Opens September 10th at the WorkShop Theater
Summer may be winding down, but camp is still in session at Down Payment Productions! PINK!, a new play by Stacy Davidowitz, directed by BrIan Smith, opens tonight, September 10 at the WorkShop Theater and runs through September 20. This risky new play offers a voyeuristic glimpse into Bunk 14, where five 12-year-old girls, left to their own devices, navigate a strict social caste system with hilarious and increasingly terrifying results.
For the girls of Camp Sacagawea, camp isn't an eight week vacation; it's a dog-eat-dog microcosm of the adult world they're so desperate to inhabit. Join Ashley, Zoe, Tracy, Samantha, and Abby on a 90-minute thrill ride deep into the unexpectedly dark and dangerous world of 12 year-old girls. Everyone wants to climb the social ladder, but maybe it's better to stay put on the bottom rung. After all, you never know when you'll be the victim of an accidental shove to the depths of social homicide, or worse.
Following the success of their hit FringeNYC '08 show, THE REDHEADED MAN (and its extended run at the Barrow Street Theater), DOWN PAYMENT PRODUCTIONS is producing this dark and twisted comedy about the perils of adolescence. Playwright Stacy Davidowitz has previously had work produced in Chicago and California as well as at the Tank Theater, Manhattan Repertory Theater and The Players Loft in New York.
PINK! boasts a cast including Kaela Crawford (Zoe), Julia Giolzetti (Samantha), Caitlin Mehner (Ashley), Alison Scaramella (Tracy), and Stephanie Strohm (Abby) with designs by Amanda Stephens (Sets), Stephanie Alexander (Costumes), Joel E. Silver (Lights) and stage management by Johanna Thelin. Jessica Fisch and BrIan Smith produce with Alec Strum for Down Payment Productions.
