Three New Plays Debut This June at Provincetown Playhouse

Eggs by Y York, based on the novel by Jerry Spinelli, directed by Rob Goodman (First Stage Children’s Theatre, Milwaukee), will be performed on June 7 and 8. David, a desperate nine-year old, conspires with the universe to bring his mother back from the dead in this sad comedy.

What Can’t Be Seen by R.N. Sandberg, directed by Joe Salvatore (NYU), will be performed on June 14 and 15. Nan, a molecular biologist, and Natalia, her 16 year old violinist daughter, have just lost the man they love most in the world. How they cope with his death is explored in this sometimes funny, sometimes dream-like adult drama. Close friends, potential lovers, and an array of eccentric strangers flow in and out as Nan and Natalia try to maintain their equilibrium, vent their grief, and understand what lies beyond the surface of their lives. Love, mystery, inspiring mea 500
