Greg Pierce’s world premiere production of Slowgirl begins performances off-Broadway at Lincoln Center Theater’s new Claire Tow Theater on June 4. Directed by Anne Kauffman, the two-person play stars Emmy winner Željko Ivanek and Sarah Steele. The LCT3 production will run through July 15 and officially open on June 18.
Slowgirl is the story of Becky (Steele), a teenager who flees to the Costa Rican retreat of her reclusive uncle (Ivanek) 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 play marks the first LCT3 play staged at Lincoln Center’s new Claire Tow Theater. The 131-seat theater is located in the new rooftop complex at Lincoln Center and will be home to all future LCT3 productions. LCT3 is a programming initiative devoted to producing the work of new artists as well as developing new audiences.
Slowgirl includes set design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Japhy Weideman and sound design by Leah Gelpe.
