John Cariani, whose play Almost, Maine is one of the most widely produced scripts in the U.S., is revising another of his scripts, cul-de-sac, in a production running October 5-8 at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.

The production is directed by Main Stage Live Program Coordinator Adam Fitzgerald, and it stars AADA alumni Clemmie Evans, Alexander Hodge, Txai Frota, Sammi Price, Gerome Samonte and Tamara Sevunts, with costume and set design provided by AADA.

The play, which originally opened Off-Broadway to mixed reviews in 2006, has been revised and was presented at High Point University this past April.

The dark comedy “explores the bizarre secrets of three houses in one neighborhood on an ordinary spring evening” and “tells the stories of three couples on a suburban dead end street who go to extreme measures to force their dreams, revealing long-suppressed agendas that threaten their survival.”

As an actor, Cariani appeared on Broadway twice, most notably as Motel in the 2004 revival of Fiddler on the Roof (Tony nomination) and as aspiring playwright Nigel Bottom in the 2015 musical Something Rotten!
