News   Trip Cullman and Blair Brown To Direct Upcoming The Play Company Season
 
Trip Cullman and actress Blair Brown will direct two works in the coming season for New York City's The Play Company.

The troupe which currently co-presents Terrorism Off-Broadway with The New Group plan to produce the New York premieres of Lovely Day and Arabian Night.

Brown — the Tony Award-winning actress of Copenhagen — will stage Leslie Ayvazian's Lovely Day which makes both its New York and American debut this fall, according to the Terrorism program.

Brown is also known for her television title role in "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd." Her most recent New York stage appearance was in Humble Boy at Manhattan Theatre Club. Other credits also include James Joyce's The Dead, Arcadia, The Threepenny Opera and The Secret Rapture. She will appear in the upcoming Huntington Theatre Company staging of Sisters Rosensweig.

Cullman — who will stage the upcoming Second Stage Uptown presentation of Adam Bock's Swimming in the Shallows — will direct German playwright Roland Schimmelpfenning's Arabian Night. The work which played the 2004 Edinburgh Fringe Festival will reach New York in the spring of 2006.

Cullman is also set to direct a reading of Sarah Schulman's Manic Flight Reaction and recently helmed a private reading of Bert V. Royal's "Peanuts" spoof Dog Sees God — featuring original music by Tom Kitt — in preparation for an Off-Broadway berth this fall. The assistant director to Joe Mantello on Take Me Out also staged Off-Broadway's Last Sunday in June and Roulette. The Play Company previously produced Indian playwright Vijay Tendulkar's Sakharam Binder earlier this season as well as Brooke Berman's Smashing (directed by Cullman) and Northern Ireland scribe Gary Mitchell's Trust the previous season.
