06 Aug 2014
Roadie Soadie Productions will present the world premiere of Things I Left On Long Island, a new play by 2014 Jonathan Larson Grant recipient Sara Cooper, as part of the 2014 New York International Fringe Festival, starting performances Aug. 9.
The play is written by Cooper (Transport Group’s The Memory Show) and will be directed by Noah Himmelstein.
Here's how the play is billed, "When 28-year-old Marny finds a lump in her breast, she uses it as an excuse to pretend she isn’t flunking out of adulthood and moves home to Long Island to live with her mother. As she vies with her family for the audience’s attention, Marny must either succumb to the whims of a family in crisis or take back her life—and her play"
The cast features Lindsay Goranson, Susanna Hari, Jennifer Mello, Michael S. Rehse and Elysia Segal.
Costume design is by Matthew Pachtman (Book of Mormon), scenic design by Brian Dudkiewicz (The Realistic Joneses) and lighting design by Mike Megliola (God of Carnage).
The production runs Aug. 9-24. Performances will be at The Steve & Marie Sgouros Theater, Players Loft (115 MacDougal Street).
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.
