It is my great pleasure to announce that the eighth season of Roundabout Underground will launch with Little Children Dream of God, written by Jeff Augustin and directed by Giovanna Sardelli. The world premiere production will open in February of 2015 at the Black Box Theatre. I am also pleased to announce that Jeff is Roundabout’s first Playwright-in-Residence, a position generously supported by the Tow Foundation.
Jeff’s play Cry Old Kingdom received its world premiere at the 2013 Humana Festival of New American Plays. His work has been developed at the Eugene O'Neill National Playwright's Conference, The Ground Floor at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, and American Conservatory Theater, among others. He is currently an MFA Playwriting Candidate at University of California, San Diego.
Giovanna has directed at Cherry Lane, Second Stage, Barrington Stage Company, and Actor’s Theatre of Louisville, among many others. She has developed plays at institutions including the Lark, Sundance Theatre Lab, the O’Neill, and New York Stage & Film, and she has worked on world premiere productions with writers including Rajiv Joseph, Matthew Lopez, and Theresa Rebeck.
I am delighted to welcome Jeff and Giovanna to the Roundabout Family and couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Jeff’s work to a New York audience for the very first time.
Productions in our 62 seat Black Box Theatre tend to sell out quickly. I encourage you to sign up for our Email Club to be notified when tickets go on sale.
