Susan Pourfar to Join Tatiana Maslany in Mary Page Marlowe
Lila Neugebauer will direct the New York premiere of Tracy Letts's play for Second Stage Theater.
Second Stage Theater has announced that Susan Pourfar will join the previously announced Tatiana Maslany in the New York premiere of Tracy Letts's Mary Page Marlowe, directed by Lila Neugebauer. The off-Broadway production will begin previews June 19 and open on July 12 at the Tony Kiser Theater.
The play is described as follows: "If you looked back on eleven moments from your life, would you recognize yourself, or would you see a stranger? Mary Page Marlowe is a seemingly ordinary accountant from Ohio who has experienced pain and joy, success and failure. In this sweeping but intimate play, Tracy Letts gives us a haunting portrait of a complex woman, demonstrating how a series of forgotten moments can add up to one memorable life."
Maslany and Pourfar will be two of five actors who play the title character at different points in her life. Additional casting and information will be announced in the coming months.
