The New York Premiere of Carla Ching’s Nomad Motel is set to begin performances Off-Broadway May 22 with Atlantic Theater Company.
Lead by Hello, Dolly!’s Molly Griggs and Fast Company’s Christopher Larkin, Nomad Motel tells the story kids raising themselves and trying to make something out of nothing in the not-so-sunny side of California; lix (Griggs) bounces between motel rooms trying to care for her brothers in her mother's absence; meanwhile her classmate Mason (Larkin), is a budding songwriter trying to keep off the radar of his absent father in Hong Kong.
Nomad Motel also stars Samantha Mathis (Billions), Andrew Pang (After the Quake), and Ian Duff (If Pretty Hurts Ugly Must Be a Muhfucka). The production, directed by Ed Sylvanus Iskandar, is scheduled to play a limited engagement though June 23.
