Having received its world premier production in Chicago where it received a Jefferson Award Nomination for “Best New Play in Chicago,” Shirley Lauro’s “All Through The Night” will open its limited New York engagement Monday, October 5th (8PM) at Off Broadway’s Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater (5 West 64th Street at Central Park West). The production will begin previews on October 2nd and run through October 25th. Directed by Melanie Moyer Williams, the play is produced by The Red Fern Theatre Company---a company which has made its mark not only producing socially conscious work—but partnering with philanthropies whose mission seeks to assist those affected by the issues addressed in each new project. Red Fern is proud to announce Simon Wiesenthal Center, an international Jewish human rights organization dedicated to generating change through education, will be the philanthropy partner for All Through The Night. Inspired by interviews with German Gentile women, and set during and after the Third Reich, All Through The Night speaks directly with a warning for today. Both stylistic and surrealistic, the play sweeps through the lives of four women---their teen years, young adulthood during the Holocaust and then beyond. Making overwhelmingly hard choices, they survive or succumb to Hitler's Reign and are changed forever.All Through The Night will feature Theo Allyn, Hana Kalinski, Michelle Lookadoo, Lesley McBurney and Andrea Sooch in the five-member company. The production will also feature scenery designed by Adrienne Kapalko, costumes designed by Emily DeAngelis and lighting designed by Jessica Greenberg. Award-winning playwright Shirley Lauro’s most recent credits include her anthology, “Front Lines: Political Plays by American Women,” co-edited with Alexis Greene, (New Press, 2009) and being chosen a “2009 Honoree of The Coalition of Professional Women in Arts and Media”. Her latest play, The Radiant, won a 2008 Sloan Science Commission and enjoyed its first staged reading, June 2009, at The Actors Studio. A Piece of My Heart premiered at Manhattan Theatre Club and was revived in New York by the Red Fern Theater Company in 2008, Melanie Moyer Williams, directing. With over 1000 other productions around the world, the play was recently designated by VW Veterans, Inc.: “The most enduring American play on Vietnam”. Her play Clarence Darrow’s Last Trial received a “2006 Carbonell Nominee as ‘Best New Florida Play’”, and an “NEA Access To Excellence Award.” On Broadway, Ms. Lauro’s Open Admissions received 1 Tony nomination, 2 Drama Desk nominations, and a Theatre World Award and she later adapted it for critically acclaimed CBS special starring Jane Alexander and Estelle Parsons.
