Naked Angels will present a workshop production of One Day on Wall Street by Julia Dahl at the Greenwich Street Theatre, Dec. 5-21. The workshop, part of their "Angels in Progress" series will be directed by Brian Roff.
One Day on Wall Street turns the world of the Financial District into a backdrop for the modern-day fable about "miracles and money, faith and finance, love and the filthy lucre" according to a release.
The cast includes Bradley White, Cara Bouno, Bridget Flanery, Catherine Curtin, Stephen Mailer and David Walton.
Director Roff served as assistant director to Philip Seymour Hoffman on Our Lady of 121st Street by Stephen Adly Guirgis and on the Pulitzer Prize finalist The Glory of Living by Rebecca Gilman. Other directing credits include The Place Where, Train Ride and Lullaby..
The design team features Josh Epstein (lighting), Paola Ruby Weintraub (costume) and Roger Raines (sound). Scribe Dahl has written as part of the writing staff of NBC's "The West Wing," and for the films "Molly Gunn," "When I Close My Eyes" and "First Daughter." Her play Wonderland was produced by The American Place Theatre in 1999.
Naked Angels, founded in 1986, has produced more than one hundred plays in their "Angels In Progress" series, which present plays in the most basic form with very little elements of technical production. Previous works include Laura Cahill's Hysterical Blindness (made into an HBO film), Warren Leight's Side Man (2000 Tony Award winner for Best Play) and Kenneth Lonergan's The Waverly Gallery (later produced at Williamstown Theatre Festival and Second Stage Theatre in New York City.)
