Second Stage sets schedule

Alexander, Kaplan plays featured

Off Broadway’s Second Stage Theater has skedded plays by Zakiyyah Alexander and Lila Rose Kaplan for the 2009 summer season of its annual Uptown Series.

Alexander’s “Ten Things to Do Before I Die” centers on two sisters, a Gotham high school teacher and a writer, who receive a shipment of boxes from their recently deceased father. Play was commissioned by Time Warner Commissioning Program at Second Stage, the program that also yielded last summer’s uptown outing “Animals Out of Paper.”

“Ten Things,” which runs May 12-June 14, is helmed by Jackson Gay, director of last’s season’s uptown play “Len, Asleep in Vinyl.”

Kaplan’s “Wildflower” follows a woman and her son who move to a small town to get away from their past. Giovanna Sardelli, who also directed “Animals Out of Paper” last year, helms the play, which runs July 13-Aug. 8.

The uptown series, which bowed in 2002, showcases new work by up-and-coming scribes. Offerings play the McGinn/Cazale Theater on Gotham’s Upper West Side.
