The complete cast is now set for the world premiere of Abe Koogler’s Fulfillment Center. As previously announced, Deirdre O’Connell (By The Water at MTC, The Affair, Circle Mirror Transformation) is set to star in the new Off-Broadway work as a down-on-her-luck folk singer living in the New Mexico desert.
Joining her will be Eboni Booth (Sundown, Yellow Moon), Bobby Moreno (The Year of the Rooster), and Frederick Weller (Mothers and Sons).
The new play by the Kill Floor playwright will be directed by Daniel Aukin (Fool for Love), with performances set to begin June 6 ahead of a June 20 opening night.
Performances will take place at The Studio at Stage II - Harold and Mimi Steinberg New Play Series at New York City Center.
In Fulfillment Center, four lonely lives come together in the search for fulfillment. The play, which was commissioned by MTC, is billed as “raw, surprising and funny.” Here’s how the theatre describes the show: “In the New Mexico desert, a down-on-her-luck folk singer takes a job at a giant online retailer's shipping center. Her young manager struggles to connect with his girlfriend newly relocated from New York. And a drifter living at a local campground dangerously links them all.”
The creative team is made up of Andrew Lieberman (scenic design), Ásta Bennie Hostetter (costume design), Pat Collins (lighting design), and Ryan Rumery (sound design).
