New Grellong Play Manuscript to See Off-Broadway in Future

News   New Grellong Play Manuscript to See Off-Broadway in Future Manuscript, a new play by Paul Grellong which received a workshop production in Cape Cod this past summer, will have an Off-Broadway production in its future, producer Daryl Roth told Playbill On-Line.

Roth said she had recommended the script to Andrew Polk, the artistic director of the Cape Cod Theatre Project, the nine-year-old Falmouth, MA, summer theatre festival which quickly and briefly offers three polished readings of new works each July. The piece, a three-character work described as a "story of art, sex, youth and revenge," was presented July 10-12, under the direction of Ethan McSweeny. No time frame is set for production, nor has casting been settled (the Cape Cod reading starred Anna Paquin). Roth noted that her fall agenda is occupied with the Off-Broadway production Beckett/Albee and the Broadway prospect of Nilo Cruz' Anna in the Tropics. McSweeny, who directed The Best Man on Broadway, remains attached to the project.

CCTP had luck with the other two show in its 2003 summer program as well. Bay Windows and Shades by Joe Hortua will be given a workshop production in October at The Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. And Carter Lewis' While We Were Bowling will be presented by the Studio Arena Theater in Buffalo.
