Susan Pourfar will join Tatiana Maslany in Tracy Letts' Mary Page Marlowe
Second Stage Theater announces additional casting for the NY premiere of Tracy Letts' Mary Page Marlowe.
Second Stage Theater has announced that Obie Award winner Susan Pourfar will join Emmy Award winner and "Orphan Black" star Tatiana Maslany in the upcoming New York premiere of Pulitzer Prize & Tony Award winner Tracy Letts' Mary Page Marlowe, directed by Obie & Drama Desk Award winner Lila Neugebauer, which will begin previews at 2ST's Tony Kiser Theater on June 19, 2018, before an official opening on July 12. Both actresses are among the five who will play the title character in various stages of her life, with additional casting to be announced at a later date.
Ms. Pourfar has appeared regularly off-Broadway, winning an Obie Award for her performance in Tribes in 2012. Her other off-Broadway credits include the Public Theater productions of In the Wake and The Singing Forest, the Lincoln Center Theater production of When the Rain Stops Falling, the Manhattan Theatre Club productions of Iron and Blur, and, most recently, the New York Theatre Workshop production of Mary Jane. She has also appeared in the Second Stage Uptown productions of The Dear Boy and Swimming in the Shallows.
Synopsis: "If you looked back on eleven moments from your life, would you recognize yourself, or would you see a stranger? Mary Page Marlowe is a seemingly ordinary accountant from Ohio who has experienced pain and joy, success and failure. In this sweeping but intimate play, Tracy Letts gives us a haunting portrait of a complex woman, demonstrating how a series of forgotten moments can add up to one memorable life."
Additional creative team members will be announced shortly.
Second Stage Theater's 2017-2018 season also includes its inaugural Broadway productions at The Hayes Theater: Kenneth Lonergan's Lobby Hero, starring Chris Evans and Michael Cera (from March 1 through to May 13, 2018) and Young Jean Lee's Straight White Men, starring Armie Hammer and Tom Skerritt (from June 29 through to September 9, 2018).
