Amber Tamblyn to Make Off-Broadway Debut in Can You Forgive Her?
The Vineyard Theatre presents the New York premiere of Gina Gionfriddo's new play.
The Vineyard Theatre has announced that Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Amber Tamblyn will make her off-Broadway debut in the New York premiere of Can You Forgive Her?, written by two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Gina Gionfriddo (Rapture, Blister, Burn). Peter DuBois directs.
Tamblyn joins Ella Dershowitz (Intimacy), Darren Pettie (Mad Men), and Tony Award winner Frank Wood (Side Man) in the ensemble, with further casting to be announced.
Onstage, Tamblyn starred in Neil LaBute's Reasons to Be Pretty at the Geffen Playhouse and played Daisy Domergue in Quentin Tarantino's live reading of The Hateful Eight at the Ace Theater, which Tarantino directed. Her feature film work includes The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, 127 Hours, Django Unchained, and Stephanie Daley, opposite Tilda Swinton. Tamblyn is also the author of three books of poetry and prose: Free Stallion, Bang Ditto, and most recently Dark Sparkler.
In Can You Forgive Her?, it's Halloween night, and Miranda is desperate for a way out. She's drowning in debt, may be falling for the man who pays her bills, and is on the run from her date who has threatened to kill her. When Graham and his fiancé Tanya offer her a safe haven, a door opens, for all of them…but is the promise of a better life a treat or a trick?
The design team will feature set design by Allen Moyer, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Russell Champa, and sound design by Daniel Kluger.
Can You Forgive Her? had its world premiere at Boston's Huntington Theatre Company in spring 2016.
