The world premiere of Lucy Thurber's Bottom of the World, a play about a woman's grief over her dead novelist sister, began previews Sept. 3 prior to a forthcoming Sept. 14 opening at Atlantic Stage 2, the intimate second stage of Off-Broadway's Atlantic Theater Company.
Crystal A. Dickinson, Brandon J. Dirden, Aubrey Dollar, Brendan Griffin, Kristin Griffith, Jessica Love, Peter Maloney and K.K. Moggie populate the play. Caitriona McLaughlin directs.
The limited engagement runs to Oct. 3.
Here's how Atlantic bills the work: "Heartbroken over the sudden death of her sister Kate (Love), Abby (Dickinson) delves into the world of Kate's final novel to deal with her grief and somehow move on. As the lines blur between the fictional world and her own reality, Abby attempts to make sense of life and death in this funny and poignant play."
Here is a look at the production:
