Performances begin September 8 at at 59E59 Theaters for the Off-Broadway premiere of Catya McMullen's Agnes. Directed by Street Children director Jenna Worsham, the new play explores vulnerability, our search for human connection, and our limited understanding of Asperger’s.
Agnes is produced by Lesser America and Hugh Hayes and will officially open September 13. The limited engagement is scheduled through September 29.
In Agnes, Charlie has been missing. Trapped by a storm, his roommates attempt to solve the mystery of his absence on the night of his return.
The cast is made up of John Edgar Barker and Hiram Delgado, making their Off-Broadway premieres, along with Mykal Monroe (Wishes Don’t Die; Fly, Baby), Laura Ramadei (The Oregon Trail; In a Word, Carnival Kids; Wyoming), and Claire Siebers (LA Party; Public Theater's Under the Radar).
McMullen's other full-length plays are The Collective, Rubber Ducks and Sunsets, Everything is Probably Going to be Okay, We Pray to Elephants, A**holes in Gas Stations, Locked Up B*tches, and Georgia Mertching is Dead, which will premiere at Ensemble Studio Theatre next season.
