“What I am hoping to do is, in the spring, write a new play,” Vogel told Playbill On-Line. “I’m not even sure what it is yet. In many ways, I think that’ll be the lynch pin [for the season].” Vogel added that, if she succeeded in creating a new work, it would probably play in spring 2005. The Signature season will consist of three productions. As for the other two slots, Vogel commented, “We’re doing readings. I think we’ll probably do plays that have never been done in New York before. I’ve written 24, so a lot of plays have not been seen in New York, but have been seen elsewhere. We’re talking about the possibility of doing The Oldest Profession, which is currently playing in Mexico, and has hit Bulgaria, has hit Poland, has hit Russia—but has not hit New York City. It would be nice to bring those ladies home.”
The Oldest Profession was recently given a reading at the Provincetown Theatre Company. Vogel teaches at nearby Brown University.
Vogel won the Pulitzer Prize for her play How I Learned to Drive. Her latest play, The Long Christmas Ride Home, is currently in previews at the Vineyard Theatre. Other Vogel texts which have been produced in New York City include The Mineola Twins, Desdemona, And Baby Makes Seven and Hot and Throbbing.
