TURING TEST Plays Final FringeNYC Performance On Saturday

Dominick DeGaetano's new play, TURING TEST, opened to an enthusiastic house on Saturday night at The New York International Fringe Festival. The production, which is directed by Taylor Edelle Stuart and produced by No Future LLC, has a final performances on Saturday, October 20 at 5:00 pm.

TURING TEST is a riveting sci-fi thriller about life, death, and creation. A poet, on the wagon and soon to be a father, makes a deal to wipe away his debts. All he has to do is teach a young man, locked away as part of a secret government experiment, how to write a poem. But what happens when that secret no longer wants to be kept? TURING TEST is a millennial allegory for the trials of both parenting and coming of age, while also evoking the grace of making art in a fallen world.

The play was a semifinalist for the National Playwright's Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center, and was workshopped at the Guild Hall of Easthampton.

The cast features Rick Busser (The Tempest/Classical Theater of Harlem), Elizabeth Chappel (Uncle Vanya/Columbia University), Finn Kilgore (MA from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art), and Julie Hays (Motherless Brooklyn directed be Ed Norton).

The creative team includes lighting design by Ted Charles Brown, sound design by Dominick DeGaetano, projection design by Taylor Edelle Stuart, graphic design by Ron Hester, and stage management by Gina Hays.

Tickets are $22 and are available at www.turingtestfringe.com/tickets.

A dollar from every TURING TEST ticket sold will go to the Turing Trust. Each dollar raised enables the trust to put a PC keyboard into a Malawian classroom. For every one hundred dollars raised, the trust is able to provide 6 PCs to African classrooms.

In keeping with the festival spirit, this year, all audience members will meet at The FringeHUB - blue flag, 685 Washington Street (Between Charles & Perry), and will be walked to the theatre by a Fringe Ambassador. All theatres are within 3 blocks of the FringeHUB.
