Zach Braff makes his UK debut in his self written play All New People, the four-person comedy that debuted Off-Broadway at Second Stage Theatre New York last year.
Peter DuBois, who directed the Off-Broadway production, will return for the U.K. engagement that will play the Manchester Opera House (Feb. 8-11, 2012), the King’s Theatre in Glasgow (Feb. 14-18, 2012), followed by a ten-week London run at the Duke of York Theatre beginning Feb. 22, 2012.
Cast: Zach Braff as Charlie. Rest of UK cast to be announced.
It's the dead of winter and the summer vacation getaway of Long Beach Island, New Jersey is desolate and blanketed in snow. Charlie is 35, heartbroken and just wants some time away from the rest of the world.
The island ghost town seems to be the perfect escape until his solitude is interrupted by a motley parade of misfits who show up and change his plans. A hired beauty, the townie fireman, and an eccentric British real estate agent desperately trying to stay in the country suddenly find themselves tangled together in a beach house where the mood is anything but sunny.
“Zach Braff scores with All New People, a morbidly funny play about the trendy new existential condition of being young, adorable and miserable.” – Marilyn Stasio, Variety.
“Sensationally funny! The jokes are delivered with the precision of ace dart throwers in this slick and lively comedy.” – Charles Isherwood, NY Times.
“All New People is a hipper, edgier take on the bantering comedies that were once the domain of playwrights like Neil Simon.” – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter.
