Abingdon Theatre Company to Present the World Premiere of Kim Davies' Stet

Artistic director Tony Speciale directs this collaboration with the Muse Project.

Kim Davies' Stet will have its world premiere at Abingdon Theatre Company.

Abingdon Theatre Company will present the world premiere of Kim Davies' Stet in collaboration with the Muse Project, with previews beginning in June for a limited off-Broadway engagement. Tony Speciale is set to direct the play, which marks his inaugural programming as artistic director.

Conceived by Davies, Speciale, and Jocelyn Kuritsky, Stet is a new play inspired by true events. The plot follows a young reporter who is assigned to write about sexual assault on college campuses and must also find a unique angle for the story that will sell. During her investigation, an encounter with a student alerts her to what looks like the cover-up of a terrible crime — and a perfect cover story for her magazine.

Cast and creative team are to be announced.

The Muse Project is a curated salon series in which a selected female actor is invited to take on a project of her own design. The 2015-16 season is the first, experimental year of the Muse Project. Selected actors will be provided with resources, money, and time to develop, rehearse, and present. Jocelyn Kuritsky is the conceiver/founder of the Muse Project.
