1,000 years from now, dating in the city will still blow chunks. And playing doctor will be way more creepy.
The show opens July 11 and runs for 3 weekends. It's a small venue with only 5 performances, and we sold out in 2006 when the first version of MAY 39th was produced, so if you know you wanna see it, go ahead and get your tix here.
It's being produced by 11:11 Productions and directed by Christy Denny, an exciting up-and-coming director who just assistant-directed "Stunning" at Lincoln Center LTC3. The play features Lindsay Haynes (she was in my play, "Jupiter Zoom," for those of you who've been with me that long) and James Finley.
I won't be at every performance, because I'm based in NYC now, but let me know if you plan on going to the show, and please tell your friends in DC about it.
About the Plays
MAY 39th takes a voyeuristic ride through the morning after a first date in the year 3009: Sam gives Louisa everything she wants, and a few things she hadn't bargained for. In MAY 40th, Roya consents to a startling procedure when she asks Jim to heal her blindness. Both plays explore the lengths people will go to in the pursuit or avoidance of pain.
