The curtain is going up on the second week of the New Ideas Festival, at the Alumnae Theatre. My play, THE RED LACQUERED BOX, will receive its premiere. The psychological thriller stars Aleksandra Maslennikova. As “Madame Giles”, she explains the incredible events that have led to a public scandal, one that has sent shock waves through polite society. Directed by Lynn Weintraub. Stage managed by Ksenia Sabouloua. Book early, as the festival usually sells out.
