News   World Premiere Comedies Getting Home and All This Intimacy Debut at Second Stage's Uptown The world premieres of two comedies — Anton Dudley's Getting Home and Rajiv Joseph's All This Intimacy — will make their debuts as part of this summer's Second Stage Theatre Uptown series.

David Schweizer (Wintertime, Songs From an Unmade Bed) directs Getting Home, an urban fairy tale set in Manhattan where "Tristan found himself a free ride home from a prince in a yellow chariot, Jan found herself the object of two rival princes' affections and Nilesh realized that heartache and self-torment have a shelf life of about six years."

Dudley has previously penned Slag Heap, The Lake's End, This Ball of Mud & Fire, Honor and the River, edWARd2, Davy & Stu, Bleeding the Leech, Spamlet and Soul Perversions.

Directed by Giovanna Sardelli (Taking Flight, Earth Girls Are Easy), Joseph's All This Intimacy centers on "a lusty 30-year-old poet who finds himself embroiled in several simultaneous relationships [with] his sweet girlfriend, his God fearing 40-year-old neighbor and his 18-year-old student."

Joseph's previous work includes Huck and Holden, which recently played at the Cherry Lane Theatre as Theresa Rebeck's 2005 Mentor Project selection, and Scenes From Childhood. Previous Uptown plays include Joe Calarco's ...in the absence of spring..., Wendy Kesselman's The Notebook, Hunt Holman's Spanish Girl, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's The Mystery Plays, Brooke Berman's The Triple Happiness, Adam Bock's Swimming in the Shallows and Dan O'Brien's The Dear Boy.
