After recently gracing the screen with Meryl Streep as super-fan “Augustus Corbin” in Stephen Frears’ Florence Foster Jenkins, and a sold-out run at London’s Soho Theatre and the Edinburgh Fringe, London-based American comic David Mills returns to NYC with his razor sharp rants delivered with his signature cocktail swagger, biting, acerbic wit and a clutch of apocalyptic tunes. Mills' distinctive style combines scathing comedy commentary with music in contemporary update of Tom Lehrer mixed with left-field Sandra Bernhard. Expect a smart hour of spiky comedy, songs and irreverent commentary for grown-ups. Featuring Jody Shelton on piano.

Don’t You F**king Say a Word is a play about love and hate, about friendly and not so friendly competition. Tennis is just tennis...until it isn't.

In this structurally innovative comic drama, which takes place simultaneous over the course of a single tennis match, and over the course of two years, Kate and Leslie explore the complexities of their boyfriends’ competitive spirits. Russ has a temper. Brian has been known to cheat. As their weekly tennis sets play out aggressively on stage, Kate and Leslie dissect their friendship and rivalry in a volley of sharp observation and wry wit. An explosive comedy about love, relationships, and the consequences of a lousy backhand.

The cast will feature Michael Braun (The Crucible on Broadway; War Horse at Lincoln Center; Much Ado About Nothing at The
