Giovanna Sardelli (Taking Flight, Earth Girls Are Easy) directs the new work which will open July 27 for a run at the series' uptown home, the McGinn/Cazale Theatre, through Aug. 12. All This Intimacy centers on "a lusty 30-year-old poet who finds himself embroiled in several simultaneous relationships [with] his sweet girlfriend, his God fearing 40-year-old neighbor and his 18-year-old student."

The Uptown series kicked off this year with Anton Dudley's Getting Home starring Marcy Harriell, Brian Henderson and Manu Narayan. David Schweizer (Wintertime, Songs From an Unmade Bed) directs.
