We are Proud to Present a Presentation… will run Nov. 7-Dec. 2 at Soho Rep in a new environmental staging under the direction of Eric Ting. Drury is a member of Soho Rep's 2011-12 Writer/Director Lab. The work had its world premiere at Chicago's Victory Gardens Theater earlier this year. Casting will be announced shortly.
In the play, according to Soho Rep, "a troupe of American actors stumble over questions of authenticity and appropriation as they attempt to reconstruct the little-known first genocide of the 20th Century—and land in an exploration that hits closer to home."
The production will have set design by Mimi Lien, costume design by Toni-Leslie James, lighting design by Lenore Doxsee, sound design by Chris Giarmo and projection design by Jeff Larson.
Life and Times: Episodes 1-4, a co-production of Nature Theater of Oklahoma and Burgtheater Wien, will run Jan. 16-Feb. 2, 2013, as part of the Public Theater's annual Under the Radar Festival. The 11-hour production is based on a conversation with actress Kristin Worrall, and can be seen in episodes or on weekend marathon presentations.
The cast includes Ilan Bachrach, Elisabeth Conner, Gabel Eiben, Anne Gridley, Matthew Korahais, Julie LaMendola, Alison Weisgall, and Kristin Worrall.
Life and Times has dramaturgy by Florian Malzacher, design by Peter Nigrini and original music by Robert M. Johanson, Julie LaMendola and Daniel Gower.
