My favorite folks at Impact Theatre just announced their 2011/12 season, which includes my PlayGround commissioned piece Crevice, directed by the insanely talented Desdemona Chiang.
Here’s the write-up from Stark Insider:
Berkeley’s Impact Theatre today announced its 2011–12 “not-so-sweet” sixteenth season, featuring a piquant slate of two Bay Area premieres, an action-packed classic, and a world premiere play by Bay Area rising star Lauren Yee, who penned Impact’s monster hitChing Chong Chinaman.
“I wanted a season of new plays that were truly unique, in addition to a challenging classic,” says Artistic Director Melissa Hillman. “Each play breaks new ground in its own way.” Each premiere is by a playwright under 35.
Impact closes the season with the world premiere of local rising star Lauren Yee’s Crevice, directed by Impact Associate Artistic Director Desdemona Chiang (who also directed Yee’s Ching Chong Chinaman in 2008). Unemployed, overambitious, and verging on 30, siblings Liz and Rob vow to build themselves brighter futures. Now if they only knew what that meant. But late one night, they discover something that may just give them the direction they need to finally grow up. “We were proud to be the company to give Lauren her full-length professional debut with Ching Chong Chinaman, and we’re ecstatic to have her back,” says Hillman. “Des and Lauren are a powerhouse together.” Crevice—which features longtime Impact favorite Marissa Keltie and which is partially funded by a grant from PlayGround, where the play originated as a short—opens in May 2012.
