Following a successful showcase this spring, David Goldyn Productions will present the Off-Broadway premiere of Marshall Goldberg's Daddy Issues this fall. In the new comedy, a gay man tries to appease his parents by hiring his ten-year old neighbor to play his son.
Directed by David Goldyn, the limited Off-Broadway engagement begins previews September 29 at Theatre at St. Clement's with opening night slated for October 6. Performances are scheduled to run through November 7. Casting and a production team will be announced shortly.
“It is 1982 and Donald Moscowitz has overbearing parents,” state press notes. “They disapprove of his choice of profession (actor), his flair for decorating (pastels) and his lifestyle (homosexual). The one thing that would make them happy is a grandchild. His solution: hire the ten-year old kid downstairs to play his son. What could possibly go wrong?”
Goldberg's full-length plays include The Manufacturer's Daughter and The Feuding Paleontologists.
