Geva offers new works in 2005-06

Preems include 'Coast,' 'Kisses'

Geva Theater Center in Rochester, N.Y., has announced its 33rd season lineup, including three world premieres.

The Nextstage hosts two of the preems, Marc Wolf’s “Coast to Coast” (Sept. 11-Oct. 2) and James Still’s “Iron Kisses” (March 15-April 2, 2006). The other preem is Jamie Pachino’s “Splitting Infinity” (April 18-May 21, 2006) on the Mainstage, a hit at Geva’s 2004-05 American Voices New Play Reading Series.

“Coast to Coast” grew out of Wolf’s experience when he found himself trapped on the West Coast on Sept. 11, 2001, with no way to get home to New York other than drive. The writer-performer (“Another American Asking and Telling”) interviewed people he met along the way to create the work.

“Iron Kisses” is an American family drama about the unique relationship between a brother and a sister, with two actors playing all the family members. Still wrote Nextstage hit “Looking Over the President’s Shoulder.”

“Splitting Infinity” is about a Nobel Prize-winning astrophysicist who decides to try to prove whether God exists through scientific experimentation, upsetting her longtime relationship with the rabbi who’s her childhood friend.

Also on the Mainstage will be Paul Osborn’s “Morning’s at Seven” (Sept. 27-Oct. 30), starring Charles Durning; long-running tuner “Shear Madness” (Nov. 8-Dec. 11), which got its start at Geva in 1976 as a wacky mystery called “Whodunnit?”; “Vigil” (Jan. 10-Feb. 12), a black comedy by Canadian writer-actor-director Morris Panych; Lawrence & Lee’s classic “Inherit the Wind” (Feb. 21-March 26); and Louis Jordan revue “Five Guys Named Moe” (June 13-July 16).
