David L. Kimple's MMF, a new play that explores a polyamorous relationship, premieres at the 18th Annual NY International Fringe Festival Aug. 10-23 at Venue #10: The Kraine Theater.
Directed by Kimple, MMF stars Courtney Alana Ward, Michael Mizwicki and Andrew RincÓn.
Performances are offered Aug. 10 at 6:45 PM, Aug. 12 at 3:45 PM, Aug. 17 at 4 PM, Aug. 22 at 8 PM and Aug. 23 at 3:30 PM.
Here is how it is billed: “When Dean, Jane and Michael's polyamorous relationship comes to an end, the trio is forced to deal with the consequences of love in a nontraditional relationship. MMF explores the realities of love, need, want and people who don't know the difference."
MMF, which has received readings from Gold Lame' Inc. (at The Barrow Group) and ArtEffects Theatre Company — as well as workshops directed by Giselle Ty in Cambridge, MA, and NYC — is presented by Goldfish Memory Productions, which will also present Mare in the Men's Room Off-Broadway in the fall.
The production team also includes Catie Humphreys (lead producer), Maxwell Bowman (lighting), Dan Spitaliere (sound) and Andrea Miller (stage manager).
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
