Promising Young Actors Bring KILLERS AND OTHER FAMILY To New York Stage

by Patricia Bradford

Lucy Thurber’s KILLERS AND OTHER FAMILY comes back to New York for four nights this August in a reimagined production at the Physics Theater in Time Square. This jarring and enigmatic 90 minute drama is produced by four promising young actors fresh out of the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute, and though the words are the same, these actors bring a new and unexpected depth to this edgy play. Not willing to wait for a revival of Killers to be produced, they decided to use their own resources and energy to bring this story to life. With tenacity and determination, this group created their own production company in order to bring forth this professional quality show.

About: “Trying to escape her painful past, Elizabeth (Bishon Prushankin) has dedicated herself to finishing her thesis and building a life with her partner, Claire (Denise Wolken). Their routine is disrupted by a visit from Elizabeth’s brother Jeff (Jake Laurence) and her troubled childhood lover Danny (Austin Edward Sickel), as they threaten to ruin all she’s built and pull her back into a cycle of destruction.”
