Playwrights Horizons announces 2010-11 season

Bock, Greenspan plays premiere at Off Broadway theater

The 2010-11 season at Off Broadway’s Playwrights Horizons includes world preems by Adam Bock and David Greenspan.

The latest from Bock, whose play “The Receptionist” had a successful Off Broadway bow in 2007 and has since been seen at a number of regional theaters around the country, centers on a contractor whose loses her senses one at a time. Titled “A Small Fire,” the show is helmed by Trip Cullman.

“Go Back to Where You Are,” the new work from Greenspan — the writer-performer who starred in and wrote the book for last year’s tuner version of “Coraline” — follows a chorus boy from ancient Greece who is sent to modern-day Earth on a mission from God. Leigh Silverman (“The Wake,” “Coraline”) directs a cast that will include Greenspan as the chorus boy.

Sam Gold, the director who staged Playwrights Horizons’ hit “Circle Mirror Transformation” this season, returns to the company to direct “Kin,” a world preem by Bathsheba Doran about the new family formed when a Texan poetry scholar and an Irish personal trainer get together.

Also on the slate is Amy Herzog’s “After the Revolution,” about a young Marxist, and the previously announced Gotham preem of Edward Albee’s “Me, Myself and I,” which will star Elizabeth Ashley and Brian Murray.

A final 2010-11 offering, as well as dates for all these shows, remain to be announced.
