The Labyrinth Theater Company’s 2012-2013 season will feature three world premiere productions, including one directed by Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman. The three plays, by Cusi Cram, Bob Glaudini and Tony nominee Stephen Adly Guirgis, will be presented at the Bank Street Theater, Labyrinth Theater Company’s new home in New York City’s West Village.
Radiance, by Cusi Cram, will kick off the season in fall 2012, directed by Suzanne Agins. In 1955, at El Gato Negro, a seedy bar just off Hollywood Boulevard, a mysterious stranger arrives and quickly turns the quiet universe of the local watering hole upside down. Radiance spans ten years and thousands of miles, delving into a single moment that irrevocably changed the world.
Next up, Hoffman will direct Bob Glaudini’s A Family for All Occcasions in the spring of 2013. The play tells the story of Howard, who just wants to express himself, but his wife is way past listening, and his teenage kids prefer that Dad be rarely seen and never heard. So when his promiscuous daughter’s latest suitor drops by with an odd devotion to family, Howard’s prayers seem to be answered, until his home life is thrown dangerously and irrevocable off-course.
The season will conclude in the summer of 2013 with a new play by Labyrinth’s co-artistic director, Stephen Adly Guirgis, the Tony-nominated author of The Motherf**ker With The Hat, Our Lady of 121st Street and Jesus Hopped the A Train.
