The world premiere opens June 14 and features "Third Watch" actors Jason Wiles (who plays Maurice "Bosco" Boscarelli on the series) and Coby Bell (who plays Ty Davis, Jr. on the show). Their TV castmate is Ruivivar, who penned the suspenseful new play with Glazer.
The respected, Tony Award-winning actress Carlin Glynn (The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas), Yvonne Jung and Henry Afro-Bradley complete the cast.
Ruivivar (known as Carlos Nieto on "Third Watch") directs his play, billed this way: "Set in a bank safe after a botched robbery, Safe revolves around the forced camaraderie and conflicts which develop between give complete strangers with nothing in common but their survival instinct. Paranoia fear and guilt begin to set in and uncover the core of each of these characters' true selves, leading to some startling discoveries. The unlikely group traverses a myriad of dilemmas in their quest to escape — forever changing their lives."
Co-writer Glazer is the co-founder, director and lead writer of the sketch comedy groups Tune In and Stoma.
