New York's Rattlestick Playwrights Theater announces the Los Angeles premiere of the critically acclaimed play SLIPPING, written and directed by Daniel Talbott. A coming-of-age story, SLIPPING features Seth Numrich (Broadway's War Horse, Golden Boy), in the lead role of Eli, a gay high school senior.
Alone, numb, and friendless after the death of his father, Eli moves with his English professor mom from San Francisco for a fresh start in Iowa. A new relationship with a boy at school exposes him again to the possibility of closeness and the danger of being swallowed by it.
Daniel Talbott's SLIPPING, published by Dramatists Play Service, was named one of the top ten NYC plays of 2009 by The Advocate, and a 2011 Lambda Literary Award finalist for drama. Considered one of off-Broadway's most respected companies, the OBIE Award-winning Rattlestick Playwrights Theater is proud to be presenting its first Los Angeles production.
SLIPPING contains adult themes, language, and nudity.
