Stephen Belber
'The Muscles in Our Toes' by Stephen Belber will be produced in late Spring 2014 at the Bank Street Theater.

The Labyrinth Theater Company has announced the New York premiere of The Muscles in Our Toes written by company member Stephen Belber. Directed by Anne Kauffman, the play will be produced in late Spring 2014 at the Bank Street Theater.

"The Muscles in Our Toes is a hysterical, laugh out loud addition to our 2013-14 season,” said Labyrinth’s Artistic Director Mimi O’Donnell in a statement. “Belber creates a world of colorfully confused, opinionated, rambunctious characters tackling the perils of middle age and everything that goes along with it.”

In this dark comedy, four friends meet at their high school reunion, and ponder a plan to free their old friend who’s been kidnapped by a radical political group. Absurdity, intensity and plain old weirdness ensue when this inebriated, stoned, adolescently arrested, religiously confused group of friends attempts to tackle the task at hand and at the same time, debate the forces of international terrorism. 

Belber’s plays include The Power Of Duff, Match, Tape, Don’t Go Gentle, Dusk Rings a Bell, McReeleGeometry of Fire, Fault LinesOne Million ButterfliesFinallyThe Transparency Of Val, and Carol Mulroney. Film and TV credits include Rescue Me, Law & Order SVU, Tape and Drifting Elegant. He directed and wrote Management and Match, starring Jennifer Aniston and Patrick Stewart, respectively. Belber is currently preparing to direct The Kindness of Strangers, starring Josh Duhamel.

Kauffman’s credits include Cherokee100 DaysYour Mother's Copy of the Kama SutraSmokefallSomewhere FunBellevilleGod's Ear, This Wide Night, Body Awareness, The Flea and The Professor and The Thugs.
