Off the Main Road
The Flea presents the World Premiere of OFF THE MAIN ROAD, an unproduced play by William Inge, author of Picnic, Bus Stop, and Come Back Little Sheba.
OFF THE MAIN ROAD was recently ‘discovered’, and has never been produced. A re-working of the project called “Out on the Outskirts of Town” was done in 1964 starring Anne Bancroft and Jack Warden for Bob Hope Presents, as a one-time television presentation.
OFF THE MAIN ROAD will be presented as a staged reading, directed by Flea Artistic Director Jim Simpson. The cast includes Walter Bobbie, Rebecca Nelson, Jay O. Sanders, Rocco Sisto, Frances Sternhagen, and Sigourney Weaver plus members of The Bats: Jamie Effros, Evan Enderle, Maren Langdon and Michael Micalizzi.
One Night Only:
Monday, May 11 at 7:00 p.m.
This reading is exclusive to Flea Members at the Donor level ($250) and above.
