Performances began October 10 at the Flea Theater for Two Class Acts, an evening made up of two world-premiere one-act plays by A.R. Gurney. The new works, Ajax and Squash, will officially open October 23, and among the cast is Younger star Dan Amboyer.

Amboyer stars in Squash, a play that, according to Flea artistic director Niegel Smith, “evokes the burgeoning queer sexuality that emerged in the early 1980’s.” The story follows a professor of classic literature who finds himself questioning his identity and pushing boundaries with a student. The cast also features Nicole Lowrance and Rodney Richardson.

In Ajax, a student adapts Sophocles’ war tragedy to the intrigue of his female English professor. The play features a rotating cast made up of The Bats—The Flea’s resident acting company.

Directed by Stafford Arima, performances of Two Class Acts are scheduled to run through November 14; both plays are presented each evening at alternating times. The creative team features Jason Sherwood (set design); Jake DeGroot (lighting design); Sky Switser (costume design); and Miles Polaski (sound design).

The Flea Theater is located at 41 White Street, Manhattan. Purchase tickets by calling (212) 352-3101 or online at
