Atlantic Theater Company will present the world premiere of Leslie Ayvazian’s Make Me Off-Broadway at Atlantic Stage 2, May 19-June 14, with an opening set for May 31. Christian Parker will direct, with casting to be announced at a later date.

The play centers on six pent-up Americans in three different relationships, exploring what happens when the rules are changed just at the moment when people think they are perfectly comfortable and the lengths to which some will go to be seen, heard and obeyed.

The design team will include Anna Louizos (set), Josh Bradford (lighting), and Jill BC DuBoff (sound).

Ayvazian’s Nine Armenians won the John Gassner Outer Critics Award, The Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and the Kennedy Center’s Roger L. Stevens Award.
