The Intentional Theatre Group and Carissa Baker present NeverCracked, two short plays directed by The It Group’s Founding Artistic Director, Emerie Snyder. The production is presented by the Midtown International Theater Festival (http://www.midtownfestival.org/) and will open at The WorkShop Theater’s Main Stage (312 West 36th Street, 4th Floor, between 8th & 9th Aves.) on Monday, July 13 at 8:30 p.m.
NeverCracked is a comedic double bill including Daniel MacIvor's award-winning NEVER SWIM ALONE in which old buddies compete in fast-paced absurdist battles of wits, one-ups, and manliness. The evening also features the world premiere of CRACKED (newly commissioned by The Intentional Theatre Group) by acclaimed DC playwright Gwydion Suilebhan, a solo play starring a woman, an audience, and an egg.
NeverCracked features Daniel Dugan, Candice Holdorf*, Grace Kiley* and Nick Lewis.
