Edie Falco and Alison Pill to Star in Off-Broadway's Wide Night

News   Edie Falco and Alison Pill to Star in Off-Broadway's Wide Night Emmy Award winner Edie Falco and recent The Miracle Worker star Alison Pill will be seen Off-Broadway next month in the Naked Angels production of Chloë Moss' This Wide Night, according to Variety.

Anne Kauffman will direct the production, which begins previews at Playwrights Horizons' Peter Jay Sharp Theater May 8 with an official opening scheduled for May 16.

This Wide Night, according to the industry paper, "follows a female ex-con (Pill) who is unexpectedly visited by her former cellmate (Falco)."

The play won the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.

This Wide Night, according to playwright Moss, "explores the importance and uniqueness of relationships formed in prison: how they can, or perhaps cannot, exist in another context; and also resettlement – when 'freedom' can actually feel like a very bleak and frightening prospect."
The play was commissioned and produced by Clean Break and premiered at The Soho Theatre, London.

Falco, best known for her work on TV's "The Sopranos" and "Nurse Jackie," has been seen on Broadway in 'night, Mother and Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune. Pill has been seen on Broadway in The Lieutenant of Inishmore, Mauritius and The Miracle Worker.

Chloë Moss' plays include A Day in Dull Armour, How Love Is Spelt (Special Commendation from the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize in 2004), Christmas Is Miles Away, The Way Home and Catch. She is currently under commission to Paines Plough, the Royal Court and Liverpool Everyman.

Naked Angels is currently represented on Broadway with the acclaimed drama-comedy Next Fall.
