The Pillow Book
by Anna Moench
directed by David F. Chapman
About the Play
Deb and John are married. Deb and John are strangers. Deb saves John's life on a mountain. John blinds Deb on the Serengeti. John works at an office. John works at a different office. Deb is a doctor, or an exterminator. The Pillow Book is a journey through the real, the imagined, the impossible, and the parallel—because who you were when you got married might not be who you are now.
About the Cast and Creative Team
This world premiere production by Anna Moench (EST's Youngblood and The Public's Emerging Writers Group) will feature a cast of three, including Eric Bryant (Angels in America at the Signature Theater), Julie Fitzpatrick (Firework Theater's 2010 production of Wolves at 59E59 Theaters) and Vanessa Wasche (Major Barbara at the Guthrie Theatre); direction by David F. Chapman; set and lighting design by three-time Drama Desk nominee Maruti Evans; and an original score by Michael Wall.
About the Theater
59E59 Theaters is owned and operated by Elysabeth Kleinhans Theatrical Foundation, a not-for-profit operating foundation. The Foundation was set up to create a new, state-of-the-art complex that would bring new, challenging and experimental work in an underserved location on 59th Street between Park and Madison Avenues in Manhattan.
We are excited to be back in 59E59's Theater C for a third time, mounting The Pillow Book!
