Cherry Lane Theatre's 12th annual Mentor Project.
Mentored by David Henry Hwang - winner of the 1988 Tony Award for Best Play for M BUTTERFLY, and a Tony nominee in 1998 for GOLDEN CHILD - Ruth McKee's racially charged play STRAY concerns James and Rachel, who seem like the perfect parents: well-educated, successful, middle-class...white. But when their adopted son from Uganda is threatened with expulsion from school, they are confronted with the real challenges of parenting a traumatized child in suburban America. Directed by Giovanna Sardelli, STRAY has a cast which includes Emily Ackerman (ReENTRY, THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY), Brianne Bergson, Antony Hagopian (FROST/NIXON), Petronia Paley (ON THE WAY TO TIMBUKTU, "Guiding Light"), and Lisa Ramirez (EXIT CUCKOO).
About the Company: Cherry Lane Theatre
Cherry Lane provides a nurturing community for playwrights and theater artists, both seasoned and emerging, to work together in revealing the social consciousness of a changed world. In this way, we serve the cultural needs of our larger community of New York City while developing a dedicated, returning audience.
Cherry Lane consists of three distinct theater spaces: The 179-seat Mainstage; the 60-seat Studio Theatre; and the 90-seat Cherry Pit (formerly the Bank Street Theater), which Cherry Lane has recently begun leasing. The three spaces provide unique performance experiences for audience and artist alike - they also allow for myriad programs and plays to occur simultaneously, both from within Cherry Lane's own producing or from its busy rental calendar made up of numerous small to midsize nonprofit companies around New York City.
