Announcement - 7 Stories (The Strain Theatre Company)


Written By Morris Panych
Directed By Greg T. Parente

August 7-24, 2008
The Gene Frankel Theater

A man teeters on the ledge of an apartment building, seven floors up, contemplating suicide. Before he can take the final leap he is confronted by the stories of the manically eccentric residents inside. The two lovers who constantly threaten to murder one another, the actor on his wedding day who plans to stay in character for the rest of his life, and the lady who keeps her own faith by answering the prayers of residents on the sixth floor. After hearing these "seven stories" it looks like all the insanity is inside, and that the suicidal man is the least likely to jump . . .

7 STORIES features Connor Paolo* ("Gossip Girl", Snow Angels, World Trade Center, Alexander, Mystic River), Toni-Ann Gardiner, Alice Kremelberg (Baby Mama, "30 Rock", "Guiding Light", "Law & Order"), Thomas James Lombardo ("Law & Order"), Thomas Patel, Erica Terpening-Romeo, and Rachel Troy.

The production, produced by The Strain Theatre Company, will play at The Gene Frankel Theater (24 Bond Street between Lafayette and Bowery) August 7-24, Thursday through Saturday at 7pm. Sundays at 2pm.
