New York Premiere of Mara Nelson-Greenberg's Do You Feel Anger? Announces Casting
The Vineyard Theatre has announced casting for the New York premiere of Mara Nelson-Greenberg's Do You Feel Anger?, directed by Margot Bordelon. Performances will begin March 13 ahead of a March 31 opening.
The cast will feature Tom Aulino (On the Town), Ugo Chukwu (What to Send Up When it Goes Down), Megan Hill (The Jazzercise Play), Greg Keller (The Amateurs), and Tiffany Villarin (The Blacklist). Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
Do You Feel Anger? is described as follows: "In Mara Nelson-Greenberg's dazzling dark comedy, Sofia (Villarin) is hired as an empathy coach at a debt collection agency — and clearly, she has her work cut out for her. These employees can barely identify what an emotion is, much less practice deep, radical compassion for others. As they painstakingly stumble towards enlightenment, someone keeps mugging Eva in the kitchen, and the unspoken dynamics of their seemingly blithe workplace culture become increasingly unsettling. This absurdly funny and potent new play, directed by Margot Bordelon, reminds us that change is not always easy, and may come with unexpected costs."
The creative team will include scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by Emilio Sosa, lighting design by Marie Yokoyama, and sound design by Palmer Hefferan.
Do You Feel Anger? received its world premiere at the 2018 Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville.
Individual tickets will go on sale January 28.
