Jordan Harrison’s newest play, The Amateurs, has found its cast Off-Broadway. The world-premiere production from The Vineyard Theatre, directed by Oliver Butler, will begin performances February 8.
The cast of the new comedy will feature Kyle Beltran (Gloria, Head Of Passes), Quincy Tyler Bernstine (Ruined, Manchester By The Sea), Michael Cyril Creighton (Stage Kiss, Spotlight), Greg Keller (Somewhere Fun, Our Mother’s Brief Affair), Jennifer Kim (Gloria, Spider-Man: Homecoming), and Thomas Jay Ryan (The Crucible, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind).
In The Amateurs, a scrappy troupe of pageant players attempts to outrun the Black Death across 14th century Europe. When a new actor joins the group, leading lady Hollis is sent in search of answers. The new play examines the intersection of creativity, art, and crisis.
The production will officially open February 27.
Harrison is a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his play Marjorie Prime. His other works include Maple and Vine, The Grown-Up, Doris to Darlene, and Amazons and Their Men.
The Amateurs was originally commissioned by South Coast Repertory and received a staged reading as part of the Goodman Theatre’s New Stages Festival.
