Directed by Gregory Boyd, Fool will officially open Feb. 26 for a run through March 16.
According to the Alley, "Two kings get together and place a wager on their fools – a jester competition, and the funniest one gets to keep his head. Two evil minions have a lot to say about this, but not as much as the kitchen wench. And what's the queen been up to all night? A dramatical comical farcical tragical play about power, love and laughter, set in a medieval kitchen."
Rebeck was a Pulitzer Prize finalist as the co-author of Omnium Gatherum. Her plays also include Seminar, Dead Accounts, Bad Dates, The Scene and The Understudy and more. She has also authored the feature films "Harriet the Spy" and "Gossip," and earned a Peabody Award for "NYPD Blue." She was the creator of the NBC musical series "Smash."
