Off-Off-Broadway's Dixon Place will host the latest work by playwright Kate Moira Ryan, The Worgelt Study, May 14-29.
In The Worgelt Study, a young architect sifts through the charred ruins of a mansion -- through the 70 years of secrets that are buried in the ash -- and uncovers his remarkable and horrifying legacy.
Other plays by Ryan include: Damage and Desire, The Autobiography of Aiken Fiction, America's Strangest Home Video, Castro Convertible Girl, Free Ride On The Queen Mary, Harold's Death and Rescuing Marilyn.
The production will be part of Dixon's "Mondo Donna!" series (formerly More Time, More Money!), a series of specifically commissioned work for longer runs. The year's series focuses on the performance work and theatre of women.
On April 12, The City University of New York (CUNY) presented Dixon Place with the 1999 Edwin Booth Award "in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the theatre community in New York City." For tickets or more information, call (212) 219-3088.
