Evan Crommett, Alex Flores, and Meg Gibson will star in the world premiere of Ceremony, by award-winning playwright Mark Schultz. Rising Phoenix Repertory will present the play on the Seventh Street Small Stage, September 16-29. Brian Roff will direct.

This site-specific play was commissioned and written specifically for the moody and extremely intimate close quarters in the basement space of downtown restaurant Jimmy's No. 43. In it, two boys from different families meet on the eve of the wedding that will make them brothers. As they test the boundaries of acceptance and innocence, life after the ceremony hangs in the balance.

Schultz won the 2005 Oppenheimer Award and the 2006 Kesselring Prize for his play, Everything Will Be Different: A Brief History of Helen of Troy. Additional plays include The Gingerbread House, Polar Bear, and Gift.
