JOKING APART

Genre: Comedy
Written by Alan Ayckbourn, Directed by Peter Jensen

T. Schreiber Studio, recipient of five New York Innovative Theatre Awards, presents JOKING APART, Alan Ayckbourn’s 1979 play.

Richard and Anthea seem to have it all: a lovely country house, two wonderful children, and a natural social charm that captivates the friends surrounding them. Or do they? Cleverly crafted with vintage Ayckbourn wit, JOKING APART simmers with triumphs on and off the tennis court, ongoing rivalries, petty jealousies, unrequited love and lust, and the tantalizing question, "What is happiness?"

JOKING APART stars Michael W. Murray (Richard), Aleksandra Stattin (Anthea), Michael J. Connolly (Hugh), Alison Blair (Louise), James Liebman (Sven), Stephanie Seward (Olive), Sebastian Montoya (Brian) and Anisa Dema (Melody/Mandy/Mo and Debbie).

 Directed by Peter Jensen, whose production of FIFTH OF JULY was hailed “a sparkling revival” by Back Stage last summer, the JOKING APART production team includes Matt Brogan (Set Design), Anne Wingate (Costume Design), Eric Cope (Lighting Design), Andy Cohen (Sound Design), Page Clements (Dialect Coach), Liz Elise Richards* (Stage Manager), Barbara Kielhofer (Producing Coordinator) and Julia Kelly (Assistant Director).
