THEATER NEWS: MARG JOINS THE CAST OF WHAT WE’RE UP AGAINST
Marg arrived in New York this week to begin work on What We’re Up Against, a play written by Theresa Rebeck, which will have its Off Broadway premiere at the WP Theater at the end of this month. Joining Marg on this project are Skylar Astin, Jim Parrack, Krysta Rodriguez, and Damian Young. The cast met the press yesterday for a photocall to begin promoting the play.
For those unfamiliar with the play, here’s the synopsis from the WP Theater website:
“Why is it still like this?” Janice sighs to Eliza. It’s 1992, and Eliza is the brainy new recruit at a small-shop architecture firm. But she’s struggling to get a foothold on even the lowest rung of the company ladder, and starts making moves to blow the lid off their pandora’s box of office politics and social maneuvering, in this sharply hilarious black comedy. Rebeck brings her trademark blistering wit to the workplace in this darkly funny and all-too-relevant comedy of gender politics.
The play has also already received some high praise from various media outlets:
“A juicy black comedy!” – Variety
“A swift and merrily vicious kick in the pants!” – Washington Post
“Theresa Rebeck totally and completely nails it in her latest play! A biting, brilliant comedy!” – Houston Chronicle
What We’re Up Against will have a limited four-week run, from October 28 – November 26. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit wp.theater.org.
