The Gibson Girl in the NYC Fringe Festival

42203271_10154989338722185_6203538290033819648_n

The Gibson Girl by Mike Amato debuts in the NYC Fringe Festival October 13-27.

“Amato’s play is well written, with taut dialogue, detailed characters, and a meticulously created world. Director Debra Whitfield helms an well-paced production that flows seamlessly from one scene to the next. The ensemble is uniformly strong.”
With a funeral to plan and his father losing his wits, disgraced writer David Roach struggles to hold on to his inheritance, his family, and his sense of self. But when a strange fire performer appears, he suddenly stands to lose it all.

Directed by Debra Whitfield.
With Aurora Leonard*, Mike Amato, Jeannie Dalton*, Melissa Roth*, Jeff Paul*, and Jeremy Russial*.
