Performances begin January 25 for the world premiere of Ray Yamanouchi's The American Tradition. Directed by Axel Avin, Jr., the New Light Theater Project production is playing a limited run at 13th Street Repertory Company. Opening is January 30.

Set in Antebellum America with an absurd and Brechtian twist, The American Tradition follows Eleanor—played by Sydney Cole Alexander—cross-dressing as a white planter—and her husband, Bill (Martin K. Lewis)—pretending to be her loyal servant— as they attempt to escape to the free state of Pennsylvania.

Completing the cast are Hunter Canning, Alex Herrald, and Danie Steel.

The design team for the world premiere is made up of Brian Dudkiewicz (scenic design), Elaine Wong (lighting design), Samantha Rose Lind (costume design), Enrico de Trizio (sound design), and Leila Ben-Abdallah (prop design). The fight director is Leighton Samuels, and the production stage manger is Chelsea Friday.

Performances will continue through February 16.
