The Directors Company, in association with Pascal Productions, is pleased to announce that A Better Place, a new work by playwright Wendy Beckett (Anaïs Nin: One Of Her Lives, A Charity Case) and directed byEvan Bergman (Love Therapy), will play a limited six-week engagement this spring at The Duke on 42ndStreet, a NEW 42ND STREET® project (229 West 42nd Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues).
A Better Place will begin performances Wednesday, May 4 and open Tuesday, May 17, running through Sunday, June 12 only.
A Better Place is a hilarious new play about Manhattanites’ lust for real estate. A male couple is transfixed by their neighbors; they can’t tear themselves away from the window. The lifestyle over there is sumptuous, and they have a quirky daughter whose tastes run to exhibitionism. Speculation begins…where did they get all that wealth? And what about the kooky brokers who regularly visit them? Who are these funny people in the glorious glass box? We all want what they have! Could it be they have attained- A Better Place?
The creative team includes David Arsenault (scenic design), Russell H. Champa (lighting design), and Valerie Marcus Ramshur (costume design).
A Better Place marks Wendy Beckett’s sixth of ten plays written for production in New York City over a ten-year period. The play also reunites Beckett with director Evan Bergman (Love Therapy) and scenic designer David Arsenault (A Charity Case).
