Greg Pierce’s new drama Slowgirl will be the inaugural production at Lincoln Center’s Claire Tow Theater. Slowgirl, directed by Anne Kauffman, will begin previews June 4 and run through July 15, with an official opening on June 18. No casting has been announced.
Slowgirl is the story of a young woman who flees to her reclusive uncle’s retreat in the Costa Rican jungle to escape the aftermath of a horrific accident. The week they spend together forces them both to confront who they are as well as what it is they are running from.
The creative team for Slowgirl includes set design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Japhy Weideman and sound design by Leah Gelpe.
The Claire Tow Theater is the newest stage at Lincoln Center and will house all future LCT3 productions beginning in June. The 131-seat theater will be located in the new rooftop complex at Lincoln Center. LCT3 is a programming initiative devoted to producing the work of new artists as well as developing new audiences. Last year's LCT3 production of Amy Herzog's 4000 Miles will transfer to Lincoln Center's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater beginning March 15.
