From White Plains, a new play conceived and directed by Michael Perlman, will transfer to the Pershing Square Signature Center beginning February 8. The production, which originally premiered at La Tea Theatre at CSV Cultural Center, will open off-Broadway on February 14, and is scheduled to play a limited engagement through March 9. The Fault Line Theatre production will star original cast members Craig Wesley Divino, Aaron Rossini, Jimmy King and Karl Gregory.
The play is the story of 30-year-old Ethan Rice (Aaron Rossini), who must finally face the decisions of his teenage years. From White Plains follows four men, both straight and gay, as they attempt to take responsibility for past actions, aided and complicated by social media and viral video. The production examines how male relationships change as boys grow into men.
Divino’s theater credits include A Christmas Carol, Frogs, Amadeus, In the Next Room and The Winter’s Tale. Rossini has appeared in Love Me, Romeo and Juliet and The Dreams of Antigone. King’s regional theater credits include Crime and Punishment, Long Day’s Journey Into Night and The Laramie Project. Gregory has appeared onstage in Frogs, Ever So Humble, The 39 Steps and The Importance of Being Earnest.
The From White Plains creative team includes set designer Tristan Jeffers, lighting designer John Eckert, costume designer Jessica Wegener Shay and sound designer Chad Raines.
