Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Vineyard Theatre Artistic Directors Douglas Aibel and Sarah Stern announce casting for the New York premiere of two-time Pulitzer Prize-finalist Gina Gionfriddo’s CAN YOU FORGIVE HER?, directed by Peter DuBois (SONS OF THE PROPHET, BECKY SHAW). CAN YOU FORGIVE HER? will begin preview performances on Thursday, May 4 with an official opening night set for May 23. Amber Tamblyn (“Joan of Arcadia,” The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) will make her New York theatre debut in CAN YOU FORGIVE HER?, joining Eshan Bay (THE LONELINESS OF THE LONG DISTANCE RUNNER), Ella Dershowitz (INTIMACY), Darren Pettie (“Mad Men”), and Tony Award-winner Frank Wood (SIDE MAN). Tickets for Vineyard members are currently on sale; general tickets will be available for sale on Monday, March 27 at 10:00AM at www.vineyardtheatre.org or by calling 212-353-0303. CAN YOU FORGIVE HER?’s design team will include set design by Allen Moyer (Vineyard’s DOT, THE LYONS), costume design by Jessica Pabst (THE HEIDI CHRONICLES), lighting design by Russell Champa (IN THE NEXT ROOM), and sound design by Daniel Kluger (SIGNIFICANT OTHER). In CAN YOU FORGIVE HER?, it’s 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? Two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Gina Gionfriddo brings her unforgettable dark humor to this timely, ferociously funny story of lost souls grappling with emotional and financial dependence, and the costs of the American Dream. Amber Tamblyn (Miranda) is a writer, director and actress originally from Los Angeles. She has received Emmy, Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award nominations for her work in television and film. In television, Tamblyn starred in the cult classic drama, “Joan of Arcadia” as well as “House M.D.” Her
