LCT announces 2 productions for its 2015-2016 Season


Lincoln Center Theater has announced the first two productions of its 2015-2016 season:

Peter Parnell's new comic-drama Dada Woof Papa Hot, directed by Scott Ellis, will begin previews at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater on 15 October 2015, before an official opening on 9 Novemebr 2015.

Synopsis: "Alan and Rob are an older married couple with a three-year-old daughter and a life they fought decades to be allowed to lead. But Alan has begun to feel an attraction to a younger gay dad; his closest straight friend's marriage is disintegrating before his eyes; and his daughter Nicola seems to prefer Rob, who's taken to parenting without any of Alan’s insecurities. In the course of one school year, three couples struggle with what it means to be married with children at this head-spinning cultural moment. By turns comic and serious, Dada Woof Papa Hot asks the question: are the challenges of gay dads the same as those of straight dads? Or is there something fundamentally different about being a gay father? And what about that nagging feeling that in assimilating to straight culture, something worth saving has been lost?"

Secondly, the LCT3 production of Abe Koogler's new play Kill Floor, directed by Lila Neugebauer, will begin previews at the Claire Tow Theater on 3 October 2015, before an official opening on 19 October and a limited run through to 15 November 2015.

Synopsis: "In Kill Floor, Andy returns to her hometown after three years in prison and takes a job at the local slaughterhouse, while trying to reconcile with her 15 year-old son, B, a passionate vegetarian."

The casts and creative teams for Dada Woof Papa Hot and Kill Floor will be announced at a later date.
