The Hairy Dutchman
Cast of 12-13 (Seven female, five or six male)
Reading with Babel Theatre Company in January 2009. Production at the University of Rochester in April 2009.
Commissioned by the University of Rochester’s International Theatre Program, The Hairy Dutchman is a play about tennis, and the history of New York, and love, and singles, and doubles, and faults, and double faults, and courts, and courting, and hairy dutchmen. It’s the fourth in my series of Lower East Side plays.
I wrote The Hairy Dutchman as a commission for Nigel Maister’s incredible International Theatre program at the University of Rochester. It was one of my favorite experiences ever. It’s a big play, with 13 characters, imaginative and wild. It was so wonderful to work on that scale- I hope to get a chance to do it again soon!
