Director: The Cutthroat Series at The Flea

The Flea is producing a series of Grand Guignol plays in the fall and I will direct Tics, or Doing the Deed by René Berton, a grotesque and sexy farce that stages marital revenge: "an eye for an eye, a hump for a hump." The show, which will include two other short pieces in the same genre, will run from September 23 to October 5. Auditions are next week and I look forward to announcing the full cast by the end of July!
