15 Jul 2014
Potomac Theatre Project, the Off-Broadway company dedicated to presenting thought-provoking work of contemporary social and cultural relevance, kicks off its 28th season July 15 following previews that began July 8.
Performances will continue through Aug. 10 in a limited engagement at The Atlantic Stage 2.
The season opens with the U.S. premiere of Howard Barker's Gertrude - The Cry. The "startling and revealing response to Hamlet" is directed by Richard Romagnoli.
The season will continue with David Edgar’s Pentecost. The play, which "explores conflicting attitudes towards art in post-Communist Eastern Europe," will be directed by Cheryl Faraone and will star Alex Draper (Serious Money, Scenes From An Execution).
The Atlantic Stage 2 is located at 330 West 16 St. Visit PTPNYC.org for more information.
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.
