The world premiere of Something Clean, a new play by Selina Fillinger, officially opens May 29 in Roundabout Theatre's Black Box space as part of the company's Underground programming. Margot Bordelon directs a cast led by Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Oz), along with 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 production began May 4 and is scheduled to play 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).
