A first play by musician Suzanne Vega and one from veteran praiser Dan Klores are among the shows on tap for the 2010-11 season at Off Broadway’s Rattlestick Playwrights Theater.
Show by Klores (also director of docu “Crazy Love”), “Little Doc,” opens the season next month (previewing June 11 ahead of a June 17 opening) in a production helmed by John Gould Rubin. Set in Brooklyn in the 1970s, story centers on a quartet of childhood friends.
Vega will appear in her own play, “Carson McCullers Talks About Love,” starring as scribe McCullers in a show that combines spoken word and song. Kay Matschullat directs the season closer, starting previews April 20 for an April 28 opening night.
Also on the Rattlestick sked are a new Adam Rapp work, “Hallway Trilogy,” with one part each set respectively in 1953, 2003 and 2053, as well as the latest by thesp-writer Heidi Schreck, “There Are No More Big Secrets,” about an expat who returns to the US with his family, and “Underneath My Bed” — penned by writer-actress Florencia Lozano (“One Life to Live”) and directed by Pedro Pascal
— about Argentinian parents raising daughters in New England.
The five shows, all world preems, will play the Rattlestick’s Off Broadway space in Greenwich Village.
