'BFE'. Playwright Horizons announces full cast
Playwrights Horizons have announced the complete cast for the sixth and final production of its 2004/2005 Season, the New York Premiere of BFE, a new play by Julia Cho. The play opens on the 31 May 2005, follwing previews from the 19 May 2005. This is a limited engagement to the 12 Jun 2005.
Gordon Edelstein directs the cast of BFE which features Jeremy Hollingworth, Scott Hudson, Karen Kandel, Sue Jean Kim, Kel Martin, James McMenamin, Olivia Oguma, Kate Rigg and James Saito.
An Asian-American family attempts to escape its stifling Arizonan home life in BFE, which tells the story of Panny (Olivia Oguma), a spunky fourteen year-old; her socially awkward uncle (James Saito); her homebound mom (Kate Rigg), who fantasizes about General MacArthur; and the serial killer (Scott Hudson) that stalks their neighborhood in search of bubbly blondes.
A cautionary tale about the devastating effects of an image-obsessed society, BFE calls into question the nature of beauty and desirability in contemporary America.
The production features scenic design by Takeshi Kata, costume design by Jayde Chabot, lighting design by Paul Whitaker and sound design by Andre J. Pluess. Production Stage Manager is Linda Marvel.
