Presented in association with the Royal Court Theatre, where the work made its world premiere in 2006, Drunk Enough to Say I Love You? marks the sixth of Churchill's plays to receive its U.S. premiere at the Public Theater.
Cohen (Losing Louie, "Kissing Jessica Stein") and West (Richard II, Betrayal) star in the drama, which elliptically depicts the submissive political relationship between Britain and America. James MacDonald (Shining City, A Number) directs.
The creative team features set design by Tony winner Eugene Lee, costumes by Tony Winner Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Peter Mumford, sound design by Daniel Erdberg and original music by Matthew Herbert (Top Girls).
Director James MacDonald is also slated to direct Churchill's Top Girls, which will make its Broadway bow at MTC's Biltmore Theatre in April. Currently, Churchill is adapting her stage work A Number for an HBO Films-BBC Films collaboration. She is also the author of A Mouthful of Birds, Cloud Nine, Downstairs, Fen and Owners.
Drunk Enough will officially open March 16 at the Public and continue through April 6. Tickets are available by calling (212) 539-8750 or by visiting www.publictheater.org. The Public Theater is located at 425 Lafayette Street in Manhattan.
