“What’s Wrong With You” Opens HCLAB Season

New York, NY— August 16, 2018 (updated October 2, 2018): The Stella Adler Studio of Acting’s Harold Clurman Laboratory Theater will present What’s Wrong With You, a new play by Jan Rosenberg. What’s Wrong With You runs from September 20-October 8, 2018.

Said Artistic Director Tom Oppenheim, “Jan Rosenberg is a uniquely gifted writer. Hearing her plays is like watching an accident as it happens. Her work is spontaneous, raw, real and you cannot look away. Her additional focus on young people, rarely represented in theater, gives insight and voice to the rising generation. Jan is a compelling writer and I could not be more proud to be part of What’s Wrong With You.”

Jan Rosenberg is the 2018 Harold Clurman Playwrights Division Writer-in Residence. The Division aims to find the best emerging playwrights and support them holistically in their process. Rosenberg rose to the top of the division’s search for a female playwright that received nearly 200 submissions. Six additional playwrights – Nayna Agrawal, Emma Carter, Kati Frazier, Stacy Osei-Kuffour, Jordan Ramirez Puckett and Julie Richardson – also received development opportunities as a result of the search.

What’s Wrong With You tells the story of teenagers Caden and Mae who have a lot of pain, but no bruises to show for it. So they play a dangerous game to teach those that hurt them a lesson. But in a world where everyone’s glued to their phones and social media, how far will they go to demand attention before someone truly gets hurt?

Shira-Lee Shalit (LAByrinth’s Devil of Choice) will direct. The cast features John DiMino, Alondra Perez, Alexander Bartner, Gabi Urquia, Petra Brusiloff, and Amy Lee Pearsall*.

What’s Wrong With You will run from Thursday, September 20, to Saturday, October 8, 2018 with a 7:30pm curtain. Tickets are $20 general admission, $5 for students; a limited number of “pay what you can” tickets will be available at the door for every performance.
