Catya McMullen's play Agnes is set to receive its Off-Broadway premiere at 59E59 Theaters this fall in a production from Lesser America and Hugh Hayes. Directed by Street Children director Jenna Worsham, the new play explores vulnerability, our search for human connection, and our limited understanding of Asperger’s.
Performances of Agnes will begin September 8 ahead of a September 13 opening.
The cast features 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).
In Agnes, Charlie has been missing. Trapped by a storm, his roomates attempt to solve the mystery of his absence on the night of his return. The production will play a limited engagement through September 29.
The design team is made up of Angelica Barrero (set design), Cheyenne Sykes (lighting design), Daniel Melnick (sound design), and Nicole Slaven (costume design). The production stage manager is Seth Betzler.
McMullen is the playwright of eight full-length plays (The Collective, Rubber Ducks and Sunsets, Everything is Probably Going to be Okay, Agnes, We Pray to Elephants, A**holes in Gas Stations, Locked Up B*tches, and Georgia Mertching is Dead) along with numerous shorts. Her short play Missed Connections was directed by Leslye Headland at the 37th annual Samuel French OOB Short Play Festival, and is published by Samuel French.
