Gina Gionfriddo’s Can You Forgive Her? comes to The Vineyard Theatre Thursday, May 4 with an official opening night set for May 23. This will be the New York premiere for two-time Pulitzer Prize-finalist Gionfriddo’s work. The show will be directed by Peter DuBois (Sons Of The Prophet).
Amber Tamblyn (“Joan of Arcadia,” The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) will make her New York theatre debut in with Darren Pettie (“Mad Men”), Eshan Bay (“House of Cards”), Ella Dershowitz (Intimacy), and Tony Award-winner Frank Wood (Side Man).
The show takes place Halloween night, and Miranda is desperate for a way out. She’s drowning in debt, may be falling for the man who pays her bills, and is on the run from her date who has threatened to kill her. When Graham and his fiancé Tanya offer her a safe haven, a door opens, for all of them… but is the promise of a better life a treat or a trick? This unforgettable play adds dark humor to a ferociously funny story of lost souls grappling with emotional and financial dependence, and the costs of the American Dream.
