“THOUROUGHLY TRANSPORTING!” (The New York Times)
“Lawrence Dial wrote a magnificent play: REALISTIC, PHILOSOPHIC, and TRUE” (NY Theatre Wire)
Last fall, Slant Theatre Project joined forces with Kelli Giddish and Wheelhouse Theater Company to present the world premiere of Lawrence Dial’s “In The Room” at the Alchemical Theatre. Running October 20 through November 13, 2016. Artist bios and more info at www.intheroom.net.
Seymour, a struggling playwright with one forgotten hit to his name, lands a gig teaching a writers’ workshop. His students are a motley collection of dreamers and amateurs, young and old. As the weeks go by, the students’ plays begin to blur the line between truth and fiction, imperiling the workshop’s delicate balance. In The Room uncovers the hopeless and heroic that exists beyond the page.
With Matt Harrington* (Matilda the Musical), Suzy Jane Hunt* (Alice in “The Americans”), Robert Karma Robinson* (Kansas City Swing at Crossroads Theatre), Jacob Perkins* (The Few at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater), Chelsea Melone (Roadkill, FringeNYC 2016), Susan Neuffer (Lend Me a Tenor at Millbrook Playhouse), and Reuben Barsky (The Bad and the Better with The Amoralists).
