More Puppets for Vineyard's 2003-2004 Season with Vogel, Shinn, Silver Plays

News   More Puppets for Vineyard's 2003-2004 Season with Vogel, Shinn, Silver Plays The Vineyard Theatre will follow its successful 2002-2003 season— which featured the first Broadway transfer in the company's 23-year history: Avenue Q—with plays plays by Paula Vogel, Christopher Shinn and Nicky Silver.

Kicking off the new season will be Vogel's latest work The Long Christmas Ride Home under the direction of Mark Brokaw. Pulitzer Prize winner Vogel's How I Learned To Drive began at the Vineyard, with Brokaw directing.

The New York premiere of the drama, about a family whose car spins out of control on an icy road following a Christmas dinner gone awry, begins Oct. 9. The work, which debuted at Trinity Repertory Company, features puppets designed by Basil Twist.

Next at the Vineyard will be the American premiere of Shinn's Where Do We Live in January. The playwright of Four and What Didn't Happen pens a tale of two young men who are neighbors in a Manhattan apartment building, but live in two different worlds.

The world premiere of Silver's Beautiful Child — about a troubled teacher who returns home to his family — will play in March. A Vineyard vet, Silver's previous works Pterodactyls, Raised In Captivity and Eros Trilogy have all been seen at the Off-Broadway space.

Directors and exact dates for the latter two play are yet to be announced. For information about the Vineyard's upcoming season, call the box office at (212) 353-0303 or visit www.vineyardtheatre.org.
