The play takes place in Main Line Philadelphia, where "in-laws and bi-racialism make for an especially spicy holiday season." The play was commissioned by The Cape Cod Theatre Project.
Set to run prior to the Hortua is Port Authority Throw Down by Mike Batistick, and directed by Gia Forakis. It will star Johanna Day (Proof), Chris Mckinney, Alladdin Ullah and Debargo Sanyal. Running July 21-23, the work is a "highly topical and riotous new play [that] examines Muslim-American relations, religion and those on the losing end of the Patriot Act."
The 11-year-old summer theatre festival briefly rehearses and offers polished readings of new works each July. The company is stationed in Falmouth in the southwest corner of Cape Cod, and performs out of The Falmouth Academy, a private school. Though the company never stages full productions and makes no bones about its plays being in a state of development, the season has become quite popular with the local populace.
CCTP was founded by artistic director Andrew Polk and Jim Bracchiatta. CCTP workshops which went on to full productions include Paula Vogel's The Mineola Twins (at the Roundabout Theatre Company), Ben Bettenbender's Vick's Boy (at Off-Broadway's Rattlestick Theatre Company), Joe Hortua's Between Us (Manhattan Theatre Club), David Schulner's The Infinite Ache (at Long Wharf Theatre), BFE by Julia Cho (Long Wharf Theatre; Playwrights Horizons), Paul Grellong's Manuscript (now Off-Broadway) and John Cariani's Almost, Maine, due Off-Broadway next season.
