New York Theatre Workshop Announces Two Selections for 2012-2013 Season
In Red Dog Howls, a box of old letters and a father's dying wish leads Michael Kiriakos to dig up the buried memories of his hidden family history. After meeting Rose, his father's now-elderly, Armenian pen pal, Michael slowly learns of a past he never knew existed, one of exile, sacrifice and, ultimately, redemption.
Belleville, to be directed by Anne Kauffman, focuses on young married couple Abby and Zack who have abandoned the stability of a comfortable post-graduate life in the Midwest for Belleville, a bustling, bohemian, multicultural neighborhood in Paris. However, their relationship is put to test after an awkward afternoon discovery, a landlord's ultimatum, and a cracked toenail.
