Still Lives to Play Workshop Theater in April

News   Still Lives to Play Workshop Theater in April Still Lives, a new drama by Paul Hancock, will play a limited engagement at the Workshop Theatre in Manhattan in April.

Directed by Jocelyn Sawyer, the production will run April 4-19. Casting will be announced at a later date.

Still Lives, according to press notes, is a "sexually charged story exploring the, sometimes desperate, longing of individuals trying to connect. Patrick is a visual artist haunted by his past. Sondra, looking for some cash and a new place to live, has convinced him to use her as his model. But Sondra soon realizes Patrick is not as interested in her amorous advances as he is the lines and curves of her body. While he obsessively draws her, Sondra slowly chips away at the carefully constructed walls Patrick is struggling to protect. Throughout, next-door neighbor Monica tries to salvage her marriage to a husband whose life is fading into a haze of drugs and fantasy while the seductive, symbiotic twins help Sondra to further insert herself into Patrick's life. But by the time Sondra realizes she wants more from her relationship with Patrick, it's the twins who have become the object of his affection, and only one certainty is left — everyone must face the unintended consequences of their encounters."

Playwright Hancock has also penned Theories, The Insanity of Sherlock Holmes and Grace Notes. His one-acts include The Perfect Affair, Rope Tricks and Cat & Mouse.

Show times are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM.

The Workshop Theater is located in Manhattan at 312 West 36th Street on the Fourth floor. Tickets, priced $18 (general admission) or $12 (with student ID), are available by calling (212) 352-3101.
