The Flea Theater presents Two Class Acts: A Festival Celebrating A.R. Gurney. The festival will include two world-premiere one-act plays by the acclaimed playwright, titled Squash and Ajax. Previews for both shows begin on October 10, with opening nights slated for October 23
In Squash, a professor of classic literature finds himself questioning his identity when a student presents an intriguing take on Plato’s Symposium. Boundaries are tested and personal lives are upended as they grapple with sexuality, love, and sport. The cast for this production features Dan Amboyer (Dan Proctor), Nicole Lowrance (Becky Proctor), and Rodney Richardson (Gerald Caskey).

In Ajax, an intrepid student adapts Sophocles’ defining war epic to the amusement of his English professor. A passionate ex-actress, the professor quickly finds herself entangled in every aspect of the play — including the playwright. This production will feature members of the Bats (the Flea’s resident company) in a rotating cast that includes Rachel Lin and Olivia Jampol (Meg), Ben Lorenz, and Chris Tabet (Adam).
