Premiere of FLIGHT DELAY By Peter Anderegg Will Open at The Tank Next Week

On December 1st Thisbe Theater Company opens Peter Anderegg's Flight Delay directed by Kelly Morgan at The Tank. The production runs until the 18th at 312 West 36th Street in New York City.

Snowed in at an airport, a father meets one of his estranged middle-aged twin sons but doesn't know which, and his son is not about to tell him, not while there's a chance to settle old scores. With nowhere to go and little to do, the son alternates identities as he pursues his father from one waiting area to the next. FLIGHT DELAY shows how painful letting go of ancient resentments to finally take flight can be.

The production's cast includes Stephen Bradbury (Dwyer), Ginger Grace (Charlie), and Zach Wegner (F) and the creative team features Kelly Morgan (Director), Jeff Pajer (Scenic Design), Kevin Lloyd (Sound Design), Leanna Keyes (Lighting & Projections Design), Maribelle Flint (Production Stage Manager), Angela Renzi (Marketing), Denise Alexander (Producer).

After retiring, he returned to playwriting and has seen several works produced, including Dead Mad (a play about a mother who follows her son everywhere, even after she dies), Matches (an anthology of nine 10-minute plays about obstacles to love), and Rot from Beneath (a play that corrects Shakespeare's Hamlet).

THE STRANGE AFFAIR OF HERSCHEL GRYNSZPAN Comes to The Other Palace Photo
It is 1938. A young Jewish refugee, Herschel Grynszpan, walks into the German embassy in Paris and shoots a German diplomat. He is arrested and spends the next four years in prison. When the Nazis march into Paris, they capture Herschel and send him to a camp in Berlin. Herschel has a choice: to be paraded in front of the world's press as a celebrity scapegoat; or to confess the truth - and to lift the lid on, not just his own sexuality, but the scandal that has infiltrated the Third Reich!
