59E59 Summer Shorts 2019

From the press release:

Applauded by The New York Times as “shamelessly clever and deeply satisfying!” this acclaimed festival of short plays returns to 59E59 Theaters for a thirteenth consecutive season allowing audiences to get reacquainted with some of their favorite American playwrights and discover new talent.

Featuring two separate series (A & B) of three plays each, running in rotating repertory, Summer Shorts offers a diverse range of voices, styles, and subject matter.

Series B seems to have possible male nudity

PROVIDENCE
By NANCY BLEEMER
Directed by IVEY LOWE
With BLAIR LEWIN, JAKE ROBINSON, and NATHAN WALLACE

On the eve of her sister-in-law’s wedding, a woman returns to her husband’s boyhood home. Tossing and turning next to him in his too-small single bed, they question love, marriage and why there are no all-night drug stores in Providence.

APPOMATTOX
By NEIL LABUTE
Directed by DUANE BOUTTÉ
With RO BODDIE and JACK MIKESELL

It’s a perfect day in a big park near a big city and two friends get together for lunch and to play catch. Instead, they begin a discussion about life and history and soon find themselves in a conversational minefield from which they may never return.

LUCKY
By SHARR WHITE
Directed by J.J. KANDEL
With BLAKE DELONG and CHRISTINE SPANG

What’s the first thing you say after six years? Just on the outskirts of town, in room 11B of The Royale Motor Lodge, Phil Granger is stripping off his wet shirt as Meredith, his wife, is rushing through the rain towards him. Lucky is the moment they meet.

    1. No nudity but cutie Jake Robinson was in his boxers the whole 30 minutes and for foot lovers he was barefoot the whole act.

  1. Yes… The Great Tamer is definitely worth seeing. I saw it last January in Los Angeles. It is FULL of male nudity and a terrific performance/dance piece.
