Someone Else, About Ukrainian Prostitute with Sage Advice, Receives Private Reading

News   Someone Else, About Ukrainian Prostitute with Sage Advice, Receives Private Reading
A private industry reading of Someone Else by Charlotte Cohn and Jason Odell Williams is presented in New York Oct. 8 starring Cohn (La Boheme) and Joel de la Fuente (The Man in the High Castle).

Williams is an Emmy-nominated writer and producer, whose play Handle with Care debuted Off-Broadway in 2013 and enjoyed a long engagement starring Tony nominee Carol Lawrence. His wife and collaborator, Cohn, was also featured in the production.

The two reunite once more for Someone Else, a comedy about "marriage, responsibility, and Ukrainian escorts." The reading is directed by Markus Potter; Rashad V. Chambers produces.

"As his wife of 10 years ratchets up the pressure to have a baby, Dave feels the spark being sucked out of their sex life," state press notes. "He begins to fantasize about a rendezvous with a beautiful and droll Ukrainian prostitute who offers Dave surprisingly sage advice about his marriage. Meanwhile, Dave’s sexy co-worker has escalated their usual playful banter into a full-on flirtation while stressing that kids and career don't mix."

"Is he misreading her signals, or is it a ploy to steal a promotion? While Dave navigates the complex waters of family, career and fidelity, he finds himself in a motel room with a curt New York escort who may or may not be the answer to his problems. And to make matters worse, all of these women bare a striking resemblance to Dave's wife. Is it real, or is his mind trying to tell him something?"

Williams recently completed a three-season run as a writer and producer of the National Geographic Channel’s hit TV series "Brain Games." He has also produced and developed series for A&E, Oxygen, Science Channel, The Weather Channel, Smithsonian Channel, Discovery ID and Animal Planet and is the author of "Personal Statement." Someone Else is billed as "Broadway bound."
