Laurence Lau & Barbara Garrick will star in Keen Company's Later Life by A.R. Gurney
Keen Company announces the cast of its 25th Anniversary production of A.R. Gurney's Later Life at Theatre Row.
Liam Craig, Barbara Garrick, Laurence Lau, and Jodie Markell will star in Keen Company's upcoming 25th Anniversary production of A.R. Gurney's Later Life, which begins previews on February 27, 2018 at Theatre Row's Clurman Theatre. An official opening night is set for March 14, with the limited engagement concluding on April 14, 2018.
Keen Artistic Director Jonathan Silverstein released the following statement: “While we still mourn the passing of our friend and collaborator Pete Gurney, it will be a joy to be back again in his world. After directing The Dining Room in 2008 and The Old Boy in 2013 (both at Keen), it is my absolute pleasure to be working on a third play of Pete’s. With his astute human observations, unique comic sensibility and singular theatrical flair, Pete’s plays have continually stretched me as an artist and human. I look forward to re-introducing one of his best plays to the New York stage.”
Synopsis: "In Later Life, a middle-aged man and woman meet at a cocktail party and ponder beginning the relationship that eluded them 30 years ago. While the pair rediscover each other and themselves, a bevy of delightful guests rally behind them. With poignancy and laughs, this classic Gurney play reminds us of the infinite possibilities in life just waiting to be pursued. A romantic tale of missed connections and hope for new beginnings."
Under the direction of Mr. Silverstein, the creative team features scenic design by Steven Kemp, costume design by Jennifer Paar, lighting design by David Lander, and sound design by Obadiah Eaves.
