The season of the Obie-winning Tribeca company will begin with Peninsula, Jan. 12-Feb. 4. The work is described thusly: "The shops are closing, the priest is seduced, and the doctor has been called away to the authorities. Flora's marriage dissolves, unleashing political and intimate repercussions. Peninsula is a deeply felt response to what it means to live in a culture of contentment surrounded by raging violence." Louis Cancelmi, David Chandler, Tim Cummings, Curzon Dobell, and Marielle Heller make up the cast. The design team includes lighting designer Matt Frey, costume designer Theresa Squire, set designer Narelle Sissons and sound designer Kenta Nagai.
On March 16, the Austin-based Physical Plant Theater will arrive at Soho Rep with Not Clown. The play takes place in a world where circuses are banned. Nonetheless a renegade troupe decides to play out the story of a girl who longs to be a clown. The show will make the New York debut of the company. The run will last two weeks.
Recent Soho Rep productions include Everything Will Be Different by Mark Schultz; The Flying Machine's Frankenstein; and Melissa James Gibson's Suitcase.
