Less Than Rent Theatre will present invitation-only readings of James Presson's Fuck Marry Kill (FMK), which is billed as "a Jacobean revenge comedy set in suburban Connecticut," May 22–23 in Manhattan.
Directed by Sash Bischoff, the cast of the readings will be headed by Samantha Hill (The Phantom of the Opera) as an angst-ridden prom queen; Sarah Mezzanotte (The Wolves) as a self-harming wild child dead set on revenge; and Drama Desk Award nominee Jeremy Morse (Waitress) as a lovable pothead whose dreams of escape go horribly awry.
The readings will also feature Josh Salt (Les Liaisons Dangereuses), Daniel Kublick (HERE’s Idiot), Max Woertendyke (A View From the Bridge), Haley Bond (Irish Rep’s It’s a Wonderful Life), Lance Lemon (Loving), and Riley Suter (Wilderness), as well as LTR company members Rachel B. Joyce, Cory Asinofsky, and Jacob Presson.
In FMK, according to press notes, "the teens of Greenport, CT, face a chaotic spring semester as they grapple with loyalty, lust, narcissism, and nihilism before hitting the most important night of their lives: prom. FMK mashes up the high drama of Jacobean theater and classic high school tropes into a fast-paced and highly stylized epic where secrets are spilled, backs are stabbed, and the survivors are left to count the dead and wonder how and why they got out alive."
