The Small will be staged as part of Clubbed Thumb's Summerworks Festival, which runs June 6-26. In addition to Washburn's play, the festival will feature Kate E. Ryan's Dot and Samuel D. Hunter's Five Genocides. Dot will launch the series June 6-12. Anne Kauffman (This Wide Night, The Thugs) will direct the work that features original music by Mike Iveson (Gatz) and a cast including David Brooks, Kate Hopkins, Birgit Huppuch, Ed Jewett, Lynne McCollough and Mary Shultz.

According to Clubbed Thumb, "Old Dot and the weird kid from the neighborhood become friends. Set in that kind of Florida town that makes you wonder: Is this TV, a book, or maybe even a cabaret?"

Davis McCallum (Queens Boulevard) will direct Five Genocides, running June 13-19. The cast features Charlotte Booker, Crystal Finn, Barrett O’Brien, Carmen M. Herlihy and Edward James Hyland.

"Katie is determined to finish writing that book – even if she didn’t start it. Lucky there’s a new co-worker at the Fashion Bug to help since her in-laws are deluded, drunk and dog-obsessed," read Clubbed Thumb production notes.

Dizzia, a Tony nominee for her work in Sarah Ruhl's In the Next Room or the vibrator play, will lead the cast of The Small, which also features Gideon Banner, Matthew Maher, Dave Malloy and Susie Pourfar. Waters directs the production, with music by Dave Malloy, that will run June 20-26.

Clubbed Thumb states, "A man struggles to assemble a reality from his dreams, the dog very much wants to be taken for a walk and the Natural Food store isn’t."

For tickets, priced $18, phone (212) 352-3101 or visit ClubbedThumb. The Ohio Theatre is located at 66 Wooster Street in Soho.
