Vineyard cultivates Silver, Barrie plays

Off B'way nonprofit announces 25th season

The 2006-07 slate at the Vineyard Theater, the Off Broadway nonprofit where “Avenue Q” originated, features works by Nicky Silver (“Pterodactyls,” “Raised in Captivity”), Anne Washburn (“Apparition”) and a revival of a little-known 1920 play by “Peter Pan” author J.M. Barrie.

Silver will star in his own play, “The Agony and the Agony,” set for a run in spring 2007 as part of the theater’s Lab Production Series. Comedy, about the revenge of a writer, will be helmed by Terry Kinney, who also directed Silver’s “Beautiful Child” at the Vineyard.

Before that, though, the theater’s 25th-anni season will kick off Oct. 24 with Washburn’s “The Internationalist,” about a businessman’s life in a country where he does not speak the language. The play was first staged in New York in 2004 in an Off Off Broadway production directed by Ken Rus Schmoll, who also directs the Vineyard production.

Next, scribe-director Tina Landau takes the helm on “Mary Rose,” Barrie’s story about a girl who might be a ghost. Play, not seen in Gotham in more than 50 years, bows in early 2007.

A fourth spring production has not yet been announced.

Final offering of the Vineyard’s current season, Mary Pat Gleason’s “Stopping Traffic,” starts perfs May 24. It will be followed July 14 by an eight-week commercial run of “[title of show],” the meta-tuner that proved a hit for the Vineyard earlier this spring.
