MTC presents Dan Cody's Yacht by Anthony Giardina
Manhattan Theatre Club presents the world premiere of Dan Cody's Yacht, written by Anthony Giardina and directed by Doug Hughes, which will begin previews at New York City Center - Stage I on May 15, 2018, before an official opening on June 6.
Synopsis: "In a small Boston suburb, a single schoolteacher is struggling to get by when the wealthy father of one of her students surprises her with a financial proposal that could change her daughter's life. Suddenly, their worlds collide in ways that open up the question: what truly separates the haves and the have nots? Is it wrong to seize an incredible chance, even if the circumstances seem questionable? Loosely inspired by a passage from 'The Great Gatsby,' this timely new play probes the troubling relationship of finance to educational opportunity in American life today."
Casting and creative team information for Dan Cody's Yacht will be announced at a later date.
Anthony Giardina and Doug Hughes previously worked together on the Lincoln Center Theater production of 'The City of Conversation' in 2014, which went on to earn a Drama Desk Award nomination for "Outstanding Play." He was also represented off-Broadway by the 1978 Playwrights Horizons production of 'Living At Home.'
Manhattan Theatre Club's 2017-2018 season also includes the Broadway productions of Prince of Broadway and The Children at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, as well as the off-Broadway productions of The Portuguese Kid and In the Body of the World at New York City Center's Stage I, with Actually and Sugar in the Wounds playing at the Studio at Stage II.
