The world premiere of The New Group's Intimacy begins performances on January 14. Written by Thomas Bradshaw, the play stars Daniel Gerroll and is set to open January 29. Intimacy will play a limited engagement at Theatre Row's Acorn Theatre through March 8.
Directed by Scott Elliot, Intimacy takes an eye-opening journey with three families in a well-manicured, multi-racial American town. When secrets and sexual desires suddenly explode, pleasant neighborly relations take same shocking and transformative turns. Intimacy explicitly explores what goes on behind closed doors, between the sheets and sometimes even in front of the camera.
Joining Gerroll, the rest of the cast includes Laura Esterman, Keith Randolph Smith, David Anzuelo, Austin Cauldwell, Ella Dershowitz and Dea Julien.
The production includes set design by Derek McLane, costume design by Scott Elliott, lighting design by Russell H. Champa, sound design by Shane Rettig and video design by Olivia Sebesky. The associate costume designer is Kristine Koury.
