INTAR is set to present the world premiere of Scissoring, a new play by Playwrights Realm fellow Christina Quintana with direction by Estefanía Fadul. The play, which tells the story of New Orleans resident Abigail Bauer, a lesbian working in a repressive Catholic school, was a finalist for the 2014 Alliance/Kendeda, and an honorable mention for the Kilroys List.

Performances will begin May 31 for a limited Off-Broadway engagement through June 30. Scissoring will play at INTAR's Theatre, 500 West 52nd Street; opening night is set for June 11

In Scissoring, Abigail Bauer, a New Orleans native and resident, must confront the clash between the life she has created with her long-term girlfriend and her career as a devoted teacher in a backwards school. As she struggles to reconcile the two, Abigail receives pressure from the school's shape-shifting, personified public address system and guidance from the figures of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and Roosevelt's devoted friend and lover, Lorena Hickok.

The world premiere will star Ryan Vincent Anderson (We Live Here), Kim Brockington (Guiding Light, School of Rock), Vanessa Butler (Queens for a Year), Ally Carey (Macbeth), Marie Louise Guinier (What Would You Do?, Most Dangerous Man in America), Ashley Marie Ortiz (INTAR Unit 52), and Elise Santora (Orange Is The New Black, In The Heights).

Scissoring will have set design by Raul Abrego, costume design by Heather McDevitt Barton, lighting design by Christina Watanabe, and sound design by Fan Zhang.

Quintana is also the recipient of fellowships from Van Lier New Voices at The Lark, Queer/Art, CubaOne, and Lambda Literary, and is a member of Ensemble Studio Theatre's Youngblood.
