The Vineyard season opener is scheduled to begin its run Oct. 14 under the direction of Mark Brokaw. The show reunites the director and playwright of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize-winning play How I Learned To Drive, which debuted at the Vineyard.
This will be the New York premiere of the drama which centers on a family whose car spins out of control on an icy road following a Christmas dinner gone awry. The work, which debuted at Trinity Repertory Company, features puppets designed by Basil Twist.
The Long Christmas Ride Home made its world premiere at Rhode Island's Trinity Repertory Theatre earlier this year. The production was directed by Oskar Eustis and starred Contact's Sean Martin Hingston.
Vogel's other works include The Baltimore Waltz, Desdemona and The Mineola Twins.
