Former Lab Member, Mainstage playwright and, most recently, WRITE WITH US teacher Jackie Sibblies Drury, will be having a production of her new play Really produced by New York City Players. The production will be directed by Richard Maxwell, another Soho Rep. affiliated artist, and presented at Abrons Arts Center.
We are particularly enthused as Jackie wrote the play Really in the Writer/Director Lab.
Here is how New York City Players describes the piece:
“New York City Players’ American Playwrights Division presents Really, a new play by Jackie Sibblies Drury, directed by Richard Maxwell, designed by photographer Michael Schmelling. In REALLY, a black woman takes pictures of her artist boyfriend’s mom. As they jockey for a claim to him, they try to redefine themselves in the wake of his legacy. REALLY is a play about grief, intimacy, and the difference between goodness and greatness seen through the lens of photography.”
Congratulations to Jackie and Rich and New York City Players on this terrific achievement.
