Announcing the world premiere Equity showcase production of ACROSS THE PARK, this weekend, October 27-29 at the American Theatre of Actors.

Kate Tucker Fahlsing, a recent graduate of Northwestern University's MFA in Writing for the Screen + Stage program, makes her NYC playwriting debut with the new play ACROSS THE PARK, directed by NYC-based director, Maureen Monterubio. Inspired by the many tales of people who connect online and stay online, ACROSS THE PARK explores an unlikely cyber relationship between two New Yorkers who suffer from mental illness and the general state of being human.

ACROSS THE PARK is co-produced by Kathryn Coughlin Maggiotto, Kate Tucker Fahlsing, and The Araca Project. The Araca Project is an initiative of The Araca Group (producers of Urinetown, Wicked, A View From the Bridge) to foster young entrepreneurs from Syracuse University, University of Michigan, Florida State University, Yale University, and Northwestern University.

Stuck on an island with 8 million people, Caroline and Denny are lonely and over-medicated. Separated by Central Park and almost two decades in age, this dysfunctional pair is brought together online by lust and their inability to cope. ACROSS THE PARK, a new play by Kate Tucker Fahlsing, follows Denny and Caroline's non-traditional relationship for ten years and about ten thousand text messages. This dark comedy takes a candid look at mental illness, the search for human connection, and what happens when the only person who truly understands you is as damaged as you are.

Recommended for ages 18 and up.

Tickets: $18 at
