Afraid of the Dark at the Little Shubert Theatre




A new thriller, Afraid of the Dark, written by an anonymous playwright and with direction by Will Frears, will have its world premiere at Off-Broadway's Little Shubert Theatre, beginning previews on 8 Sep 2011.

Cast, opening date and schedule for the drama is still to be announced.

Conceived and developed by Jim Steinmeyer, Devlin Elliott, Tom Kirdahy and its anonymous author, Afraid of the Dark depicts the nightmare that ensues when four people, all acquaintances, are visited by a mysterious, cryptic stranger.

Press notes for the show describe it as "At once a play and a singular theatrical experience, depicting as it does the ghoulish and fantastical things that happen when four people, all acquaintances, are visited by a mysterious, cryptic stranger. Afraid of the Dark both raises the hair on one's neck and raises the questions, "where does a nightmare end and reality begin?" and "what makes you afraid of the dark?"

The creative team features scenic design by Neil Patel, costume design by Jenny Mannis, lighting design by Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer, and sound design by Fitz Patton.

Afraid of the Dark is being produced Off-Broadway by Maberry Theatricals, James Nederlander, Jr. and Craig Haffner.
