Get in the Game With Scenes From The Nap on Broadway

A snooker tournament has high stakes in Richard Bean's new comedy.

Richard Bean's The Nap is now in performances at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, opening next Thursday, September 27.

Directed by Daniel Sullivan, the play is set in the world of snooker, the British version of pool. Dylan Spokes (Ben Schnetzer), a fast-rising young star, arrives for a championship tournament only to be confronted by the authorities warning him of the repercussions of match fixing. Before he knows it, Dylan's forced into underhanded dealings with a cast of wildly colorful characters that include his ex-convict dad (John Ellison Conlee), saucy mum (Johanna Day), quick-tongued manager (Max Gordon Moore), and a renowned gangster (Alexandra Billings) to boot.

Also featured in the cast are Ahmed Aly Elsayed, Ethan Hova, Heather Lind, Bhavesh Patel, and Thomas Jay Ryan.

Get a first look at scenes from the new comedy below.
