This Is My Office to open in November with The Play Company

playcographic I’m thrilled to be collaborating with The Play Company on This Is My Office, am particularly excited to be part of a season that includes new plays by Jonas Hassen Khemiri and Toshiki Okada, writers whose works I greatly admire. This production will be site-specific, in a non-theatre space in midtown. David Barlow is playing “Andy”, and Davis McCallum is directing.

You can read more about the production on The Play Company’s website. I recommend getting tickets early; due to the nature of the piece, audiences will be kept small.
