Performances play March 13-April 20, 2008, at Playwrights Horizons' intimate Peter Jay Sharp Theater. The staging will also feature Maria Dizzia, who played the vulnerable and questioning title character in Second Stage's recent production of Sarah Ruhl's Eurydice.
The new play by Obie Award winner Bock, to be directed by Trip Cullman, is described this way by Off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons: "Off on the bar crawl to end all crawls, three twentysomething brides-to-be find their lives going topsy-turvy when one of them begins to question her future after a chance encounter with a recently jilted handsome stranger. A wildly theatrical take on the mystique of marriage and the ever-shifting nature of love and identity in a city that never sleeps."
Foa will play Eddie, a tap-dancing dentist and best friend to Frank, that handsome stranger in question. Dizzia will play one of the brides, Melissa.

The Drunken City had its world premiere at the Kitchen Theatre in Ithaca, NY, in 2005.
