Dan Klores, whose searing and deeply felt documentaries have become modern classics, once again weaves a New York tale in this very personal new work, infused with equal parts humor and heartbreak. Set in 1970’s Brooklyn, in the living room of a one-bedroom apartment under the “el” and above a tiny neighborhood bar, Little Doc centers on four childhood friends who find themselves in a life-threatening situation that challenges the validity of the virtues they've adopted from a sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll culture.
The cast of seven features Adam Driver, Salvatore Inzerillo, Steven Marcus, Tobias Segal, Billy Tangradi, Dave Tawil, and Joanne Tucker.
Opening the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater's 16th Season, performances of the world premiere of Little Doc will begin Friday, June 11 at Rattlestick Theatre. The official opening night is set for Thursday, June 17.
