News   PHOTO CALL: Bryggman, Emery, McGrath Rehearse Pinter Double Bill for Atlantic
 
Atlantic Theater Company's double bill branded as The Collection & A Kind of Alaska: Two Plays by Harold Pinter, begins Off-Broadway Nov. 3.

The troupe includes ATC members Larry Bryggman (Broadway's Proof and Picnic) and Matt McGrath and guest artists Lisa Emery, Rebecca Henderson and Darren Pettie.

Here's how the not-for-profit company characterizes the experience: "Atlantic returns to the work of Tony Award and Nobel Prize winning playwright Harold Pinter following its critically hailed 2005 production of his first and last plays The Room and Celebration. Here again, the plays are separated chronologically by many years; both, however, are steeped in the author's signature humor, mystery and psychological tension. In The Collection (1961), a 4 AM phone call and a surprise visitor set off a series of conversations about potential infidelities among two couples. And a middle-aged woman who has been asleep in a hospital room awakens after 30 years and must reorient herself to a greatly changed world in A Kind of Alaska (1982), which was inspired by the work of Oliver Sacks in his seminal book, 'Awakenings.'"

Here is the cast in rehearsal:


 

 

Atlantic founding member Karen Kohlhaas directs both plays. Official opening is Nov. 22 for a limited run to Dec. 12.

All tickets are $65 and available by calling Ticket Central at (212) 279-4200 or at ticketcentral.com, in person at the Ticket Central box office or in person at the Atlantic Stage 2 box office located at 330 West 16th Street (between Eighth and Ninth Avenues).
