Second Stage Theatre has announced the two world premiere plays which will be presented as part of the company's tenth annual Second Stage Theatre Uptown Series at the McGinn/Cazale.

In Alena Smtih's The Bad Guys (May 21-June 17, opening June 4), five childhood buddies reunite on a late summer afternoon for some beer, grilling and weed, but deep within their friendship lurk ghosts that rock the patio beneath them.

In Kenneth Lin's Warrior Class (July 11-August 11, opening July 23), when Assemblyman Julius Lee makes a bid for Congress, the ghosts of his college days come back to haunt him. Evan Cabnet will direct.

The Uptown Series seeks to develop the skills of emerging playwrights, to provide early-career artists with the support of a major artistic institution, and to create new plays for the American Theatre.
