Amber (Alexandra Socha) and Tom (Joshua Boone) are freshmen at Princeton University, where their experiences so far have only two things in common: drunken parties and a desire to fit in. But when they meet, their common experience becomes anything but, and their moral mettle is put to the test. Lileana Blain-Cruz directs Anna Ziegler’s deeply felt and relevant world premiere play about intimacy and responsibility, power and provocation, privilege and protocol.
Actually is produced in association with Manhattan Theatre Club, Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director, Barry Grove, Executive Producer. Actually will run at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Studio at Stage II, with previews beginning October 31, and opening night scheduled for November 14.
Actually runs from Wednesday, August 9 to Sunday, August 20. A post-show Talkback is scheduled for Tuesday, August 15, as well as a Lawn Talk prior to the matinee on Sunday, August 13.
