Performances begin May 4 in Roundabout Theatre Company's black box theatre for the world premiere of Something Clean by Selina Fillinger. The new play, directed by Margot Bordelon, is part of the 12th season of RTC's Underground programming dedicated to new writers and their work.
The production features a cast made upf Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Oz), Daniel Jenkins (Oslo, Billy Elliot), and Christopher Livingston (Wilder Gone, Party People).
Through the eyes of a wife and mother (Erbe), Something Clean examines the aftermath of a sex crime—guilt, the grief, and the ways we grapple with the unthinkable.
The world premiere officially opens May 29 and is scheduled through June 30.
The creative team is made up of Reid Thompson (sets), Valérie Thérèse Bart (costumes), Jiyoun Chang (lighting), and Palmer Hefferan (original compositions and sound).
Something Clean was originally commissioned and developed through the Sideshow Theatre Company Freshness Initiative and was presented as part of the 2018 Roundabout Underground Reading Series.
Fillinger is an actor and writer. Other work includes Faceless (Northlight Theatre premiere, Joseph Jeff Award-nominated, regional productions at Zeitgeist Theatre, St. Louis Repertory Theatre, and Park Theatre in London) and The Armor Plays: Cinched/Strapped).
