The Manhattan Theatre Club production of Abbie Spallen's Pumpgirl officially opened Tuesday December 4 at MTC at New York City Center – Stage II (131 West 55th Street).
"In this gripping play from one of Ireland's brightest new talents, playwright Abbie Spallen shapes a startling tale of three lives colliding in rural Ireland. The play unfolds with the story of a homely, tomboyish pump girl (Cabell) at a rundown gas station. When a local racetrack star (Sparks) becomes the focus of her obsession, the affair threatens more than the feelings of his disenchanted wife (Hughes). A blazing success last season in Edinburgh and at London's renowned Bush Theatre, the play is in the best tradition of richly detailed and unforgettable Irish storytelling," explain press notes.Tickets for Pumpgirl are $50. Group and student ($25) rates are available. Call (212) 581-1212 for further information. For information visit www.ManhattanTheatreClub.com.
Now – December 9 Tuesday – Sunday at 7:30pm, Saturday & Sunday at 2:30pm.
