Jenkin calls his play "a very sober-minded comedy," and "two plays in one." One story concerns a writer, a nurse, an artist and two dangerous puppeteers stuck in a decrepid hotel positioned on "the psychic edge of our world." The second story is about Coconut Joe, a salesman who has strayed terribly off-course. Jenkins is a downtown theatre favorite. His plays include Dark Ride, My Uncle Sam and Careless Love. He is a professor of dramatic writing at New York University.
Casting will be announced at a later date. The production will run until Nov. 22. Call (212) 226-2407.
