Jill Paice, Eden Espinosa, Imran W. Sheikh Set for Reading of David Klein's Synchro

A by-invitation-only reading of David Klein's new play, Synchro, will be presented in New York Nov. 9.

Gabriel Barre will direct a cast that includes Jill Paice, Eden Espinosa, Imran W. Sheikh and Emilee Dupré with Carrie Cimma, Lindsay Teed, Natalia Volkodaeva, Tanesha Ross, Erin McGrath, Alexandra Ausman and Rita Markova.

"This funny and innovative new play tells the story of nine women who make up the fictitious Lantern Fish, an Olympic-bound synchronized swimming team who, after an injury, are forced to take on the sport's first male member, a young Indian phenom named Prandesh," according to press notes. "Faced with newfound stardom and the sport's sudden mainstream acceptance they struggle to maintain their synchronicity in and out of the water, raising questions of gender, celebrity, culture divides and the tenuous nature of friendships born out of competition."

Louis Hobson produces.
