The Flea Theater presented the World Premiere of THE VANDAL, a new play by Hamish Linklater, who is probably best known for his role opposite Julia Louis Dreyfus on television in "The New Adventures of Old Christine." The engaging dark comedy is smartly directed by Jim Simpson and features outstanding performances by Zach Grenier, Deirdre O’Connell and Noah Robbins.
The Vandal is set in Kingston, New York on a freezing night at a bus stop midway between the cemetery and the hospital where a woman meets a teenage boy. She has been to the hospital, and he is coming from the cemetery. Waiting for the next bus together they break down the walls between them with stories to keep them warm. The startling, and funny tale delves into how we live, and the stories we tell ourselves when we’re haunted by the people we have loved and lost.
The Flea Theater, under Artistic Director Jim Simpson and Producing Director Carol Ostrow, is one of New York’s leading off-off-Broadway companies and is a winner of a Special Drama Desk Award for outstanding achievement, an Obie Award and an Otto for political theater.
Performances run January 18 – February 17 at The Flea, 41 White Street between Church and Broadway in Tribeca. For tickets call 212-352-3101 or visit www.theflea.org
