The production opens Aug. 19 and runs through Sept. 7. According to press notes, "In Things We Do for Love, fastidious Barbara’s orderly, but solitary world is thrown into chaos when the arrival of her longtime friend Nikki and her fiancé ignites unexpected and violent passions. Replete with trademark Ayckbourn touches, this wickedly funny play will have the audience questioning just how sane anyone really is when it comes to love."
Director Tillinger is a veteran to staging Ayckbourn's works - having staged several on Broadway and at Wesport - including How the Other Half Loves and Relatively Speaking at the playhouse and Absurd Person Singular on The Great White Way.
The design team includes James Noone as scenic designer, Laurie Churba as costume designer, Paul Miller as lighting designer and Scott Killian as sound designer.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
