Phoenix Theatre Ensemble to Stage Glyn Maxwell's Wolfpit April 7-May 6

News   Phoenix Theatre Ensemble to Stage Glyn Maxwell's Wolfpit April 7-May 6 The Phoenix Theatre Company, the new troupe made up of former members of the Jean Cocteau Rep, will on April 7 present its latest productions, the American premiere of Glyn Maxwell's Wolfpit and Complete Works of William Shakespeare [abridged], playing in repertory.

The shows will be staged at Theatre Three on 311 West 43rd Street on the third floor.

Maxwell is a favorite of the Phoenix. Last fall, the company produced the American premiere of the playwright's Broken Journey. Wolfpit, according to press notes, "begins on one summer's day when the peaceful life of a Suffolk village is disturbed forever by a strange visitation by two children who seem to have come from nowhere, speak no English, eat no food and, most terrible of all, are green from head to toe."

Directed by Arkansas Rep artistic director Robert Hupp, who once worked with Jean Cocteau Rep, the play will star Phoenix founders Craig Smith, Elise Stone, Angela Madden and Jason Crowl, along with Jason O'Connell, Joe Menino, John Lenartz, Margo Passalaqua, Nicole Raphael and Jonathan Tindle.

The popular and oft-produced The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [abridged], takes a comic spin through Shakespeare's canon in just 90 minutes. Directed by Michael Surabian, it will star Brian A. Costello, Matt Neely and Scott D. Phillips.

Tickets are available through www.WOLFPIT.com or by calling (212) 352.3101.
