Asuncion, the new play written by and starring Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg, has extended three weeks at off-Broadway's Cherry Lane Theatre. The Rattlestick Playwrights Theater production will now close on December 18 instead of November 27 as previously announced.
Directed by Kip Fagan, the play also stars The Hangover's Justin Bartha, Remy Auberjonois and Camille Mana. Asuncion opened opened on October 27.
Eisenberg stars as Edgar, a socially awkward former college student living with his former T.A (Bartha). Edgar's brother (Auberjonois) shows up unannounced at their dump of an apartment with his new wife, Asuncion (Mana), asking if the pair can harbor his bride for a few days with no questions asked. When Edgar forms a theory that his new sister-in-law might be a sex worker, he begins a hilariously neurotic search to uncover the truth.
