Performances of Nice Girl are set to run May 7 through June 7 at Bank Street Theater. The production reunites Ross with director Mimmi O'Donnell, who worked together in 2011 on the acclaimed Thinner Than Water.
Ross' latest play is set in a small, middle class suburb outside of Boston in 1984. It follows Jo Rosen, a 37-year-old woman with a dead-end job who still lives at home with her mother. "When a chance flirtation with an old classmate and a new friendship at work give her hope for the possibility of change, Jo dusts off the Jane Fonda tapes and begins to take tentative steps towards a new life," say press notes. Nice Girl explores both the tragedy and joy of figuring out who you are.
Ross is a Labyrinth Theater Company member; her earlier play include You Are Here, Do Something Pretty and The Allies.
Bank Street Theater is located at 155 Bank St., New York. Tickets begin at $25 and can be purchased at labtheater.org or by calling (212) 513 1080.
