The Argyros Presents, in association with The Community Library and Sawtooth Productions, a reading with playwright David Cale.
For this one-time-only presentation, Cale will read a work-in-progress preview of his newest solo play, Sandra. Sandra is a one-woman thriller about a café owner in Brooklyn whose closest friend goes missing in Mexico. After flying to Puerto Vallarta to try to track down his whereabouts, Sandra’s search for clues leads her into both a highly charged love affair, and increasingly dangerous territory. Sandra will have its World Premiere at The Vineyard Theatre in New York City in Spring 2022.
Acclaimed as “an enthralling writer-monologist” by The New York Times, David Cale’s recent shows include the solo play Harry Clarke, starring Billy Crudup, for which he received the 2018 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show, and his solo musical memoir We’re Only Alive for A Short Amount of Time, for which he wrote the book, lyrics, co-composed the music with Matthew Dean Marsh, and starred. For We’re Only Alive for A Short Amount of Time, Cale was the recipient of the 2019 Jeff Award for Best New Musical, a 2020 Outer Critics Circle Award, 2020 Lucille Lortel Award nomination, 2020 Drama Desk Award nomination and a 2020 Obie Award.
