The world premiere of Meghan Kennedy's Too Much, Too Much, Too Many, directed by Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall), will kick off the seventh season of Roundabout Theatre Company's Underground series. Performances will begin October 25 at the Black Box Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. Opening night is set for November 20.
Too Much, Too Much, Too Many is a drama about the walls we build to protect our hearts—and deciding when it’s time to break them down. Following the death of her husband, Rose locks herself in her bedroom for the better part of a year, leaving her daughter Emma to care for her through the closed door. When the church sends a pastor to help coax Rose out of her room, he soon finds that Rose is not the only one using barriers to hide her true feelings.
Kennedy won the 2012 David Calicchio Emerging American Playwright Prize for her play Light. Too Much, Too Much, Too Many was developed at the 2012 PlayPenn Conference and earned her Writer-In-Residence at the 2012 Cape Cod Theatre Project. Kennedy's other plays include Yours and The Greenest Month. She was a nominee for the 2013 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and a finalist for the 2013 Page 73 Playwriting Fellowship, 2011 PlayPenn Conference, 2011 Seven Devils Conference and 2011 Bay Area Playwrights Festival.
Too Much, Too Much, Too Many will play a limited engagement through January 5, 2014. The cast and creative team will be announced soon.
