Due to an abundance of caution for health and safety reasons, Atlantic Theater Company has canceled the first two previews of its upcoming production of Claire Barron's Shhhh on January 12 and 13.
The limited engagement will now begin performances January 14 prior to an official opening January 31 and continue through February 13 at Atlantic Stage 2.
Also directed by and featuring playwright Barron (Pulitzer Prize finalist Dance Nation), the cast also includes Janice Amaya (Cartography), Annie Fang, Nina Grollman (To Kill a Mockingbird), Greg Keller (Halfway Bitches Go Straight to Heaven), and Constance Shulman (The Rose Tattoo).
In the play, described as a study of "kink, trauma, pleasure, and revenge," Penny flirts at a morbid anatomy museum, Kyle tells stories of dismemberment, Sally turns you on with tea and biscuits, and Shareen prepares a mysterious potion.
The production also has scenic design by Arnulfo Maldonado, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Jen Schriever, sound design by Sinan Zafar, and intimacy and fight direction by Unkle Dave’s Fight House. Laura Smith serves as production stage manager.
