After the Revolution extends by two week
Playwrights Horizons has announced a two-week extension for its New York premiere production of After The Revolution, a new play by Amy Herzog. Originally set to play a limited engagement through to 28 Nov 2010, the production will now play through to 12 Dec 2010.
After The Revolution opened at Playwright Horizons on 9 Nov 2010, following previews from 21 Oct 2010.
In After The Revolution, the brilliant, promising Emma Joseph (Ms. Powell) proudly carries the torch of her family's Marxist tradition, devoting her life to the memory of her blacklisted grandfather. But when history reveals a shocking truth about the man himself, the entire family is forced to confront questions of honesty and allegiance they thought had been resolved. After The Revolution is a portrait of an American family, thrown into an intergenerational tailspin, forced to reconcile a thorny and delicate legacy.
Directed by Carolyn Cantor, After The Revolution features Mark Blum (Leo), Peter Friedman (Ben), Meredith Holzman (Jess), David Margulies (Morty), Katharine Powell (Emma), Lois Smith (Vera), Elliot Villar (Miguel) and Mare Winningham (Mel).
The production reunites the complete, acclaimed cast from this summer's World Premiere at Williamstown Theatre Festival.
After The Revolution had its World Premiere at Williamstown Theatre Festival, opening on 22 Jul 2010 and playing a limited engagement through to 1 Aug 2010.
The play features scenic design by Clint Ramos, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Ben Stanton and sound design by Fitz Patton.
