And Backstage.com has its own words to speak about our production of DISAPPEARED:
With its story of a young woman who goes missing and the inability of the police to determine whether she left of her own volition or met with foul play, Phyllis Nagy's 1995 drama "Disappeared" joins the ranks of contemporary dramas such as Bryony Lavery's "Frozen," yet it's sui generis, meshing existential drama with black comedy. Director Dave Barton's staging is long on atmosphere yet sticks to the nitty-gritty of Nagy's text. The play's various New York City locales are boosted by Christopher Basile and Alexander Price's well-detailed scenic design. The real litmus test, though, lies with Barton's octet of actors and how well their work realizes a script in which characterization is everything.
PLEASE NOTE: post-performance discussions with playwright Phyllis Nagy will follow our matinĂ©e showings on May 1 and May 8 at 2pm. These dates are expected to sell out quickly, so buy your tickets now!
