Roundabout Theatre Company will continue its 12th season of Roundabout Underground with the world premiere of Something Clean by Selina Fillinger. The new play will begin performances in April 2019 in Roundabout’s 62-seat Black Box Theatre with a full creative team and cast to be announced.
Something Clean will be directed by Margot Bordelon, who recently helmed Angela Hanks' Wilder Gone as part of Clubbed Thumb's SummerWorks, and will soon direct Plot Points in Our Sexual Development by Miranda Rose Hall at LCT3.
Through the eyes of a wife and mother, Something Clean examines the aftermath of a sex crime—guilt, the grief, and the ways we grapple with the unthinkable.
The play was originally commissioned and developed through the Sideshow Theatre Company Freshness Initiative and was presented as part of the 2018 Roundabout Underground Reading Series.
Now in its 12th season, Roundabout Underground showcases new plays in the company's Black Box Theatre. The initiative is dedicated to introducing and cultivating emerging writers by giving them their first Off-Broadway production or a reading of a new work.
Fillinger is an actor and writer. Other work includes Faceless (Northlight Theatre premiere, Joseph Jeff Award-nominated, regional productions at Zeitgeist Theatre, St. Louis Repertory Theatre, and Park Theatre in London) and The Armor Plays: Cinched/Strapped.
Prior to Something Clean, the 2018–2019 season will kick off this fall with the world premiere of Ming Peiffer’s Usual Girls.
Other Underground alumni include Jireh Breon Holder (Too Heavy For Your Pocket), Stephen Karam (The Humans on Broadway), Joshua Harmon (Significant Other on Broadway), Meghan Kennedy (Napoli, Brooklyn), and Lindsey Ferrentino (Ugly Lies the Bone).
