News   Phoenix, a Post-Mortem of a One-Nighter, Begins March 5 at Humana Festival in Louisville
The impact of a one-night stand is the focus of Scott Organ's Phoenix, getting its world premiere March 5-27 in the Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville.

Drama Desk Award winner Suli Holum (Lebensraum) and Trey Lyford (machines machines machines…) star. Phoenix, directed by Aaron Posner, takes a look at the long-term effects of an unexpected one-night stand and concerns what happens over "7 weeks, 4,000 miles and 6 cups of coffee as two strangers question the calculated lives they lead and contemplate the uncertain world that might be," according to ATL notes. The play is billed as "a sly comedy about how getting off course can put you on the right track."

The creative team includes scenic designer Michael B. Raiford, costume designer Lorraine Venburg, lighting designer Jeff Nellis, sound designer Benjamin Marcum, properties designer Mark Walston and hair and make-up designer Heather Fleming.

Organ is making his Actors Theatre debut with Phoenix. Full-length plays include The Faithful, Fixed and The Remainder. Short plays include China, The Mulligan and and everybody else.

Phoenix plays ATL's Bingham Theatre. Actors Theatre of Louisville is located at 316 W. Main Street in Louisville. For tickets call (502) 584-1265 or visit
