The Flea Theater has extended the off-Broadway premiere of filmmaker Todd Solondz's debut play, Emma and Max. Performances will now continue through November 4.

Written and directed by Solondz, Emma and Max is described as follows: "Todd Solondz, known for his style of dark, thought-provoking, socially conscious satire, makes his theatrical debut at the Flea. In Emma and Max, he turns his critical eye on New Yorkers, exploring the illusions and delusions, hopes and despair of the city's well-off and worn down. Parenting and marriage, kids and vacation, devastation and survival — the quotidian stuff of life. In his typical fashion, Solondz spares no one and skewers everyone in a play about privilege, race and the intersection of black and white."

Featured in the cast are Ilana Becker (Gotham), Deborah S. Craig (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), Zonya Love (The Color Purple), Matt Servitto (The Sopranos), and Rita Wolf (An Ordinary Muslim). The creative team includes Julia Noulin-Mérat (scenic and property design), Andrea Lauer (costume design), Becky Heisler McCarthy (lighting design), Adam J. Thompson (video design), Fabian Obispo (sound design), and Cookie Jordan (wig design). Kris Bergbom is the production manager, and Gina Solebello is the production stage manager.
