Page 73 Productions to Present Susan Soon He Stanton's Today Is My Birthday
The world premiere will be directed by Kip Fagan.
Page 73 Productions has announced that its fall production will be the world premiere of Susan Soon He Stanton's new play, Today Is My Birthday, directed by Kip Fagan. Performances begin on November 28 at the New Ohio Theatre for a limited run through December 23. Opening night is set for December 7.
Today Is My Birthday is a comedy following Emily, a would-be writer, who retreats home to O'ahu after Manhattan finally gets the best of her. When she stumbles into a gig as an actor on a shock-jock radio dating show, she finds herself strangely determined to turn fantasy into reality. The story is told through phone calls, voicemails, and live radio spots.
In addition, the P73 Playwriting Fellow John J. Caswell Jr. will receive a workshop of his play Cream!, directed by Dustin Wills. The workshop will culminate in two readings of the play, October 19 and 20, which are free and open to the public with a reservation. The play follows the owners of a bakery who once refused to cater gay weddings as they attempt to rehabilitate their reputation on an over-the-top reality show.
