long history of neglect
By Noah Haidle
Oct 12, 13, 14, 16, 20, 21, 27, 28, 30
and Nov 3 and 4 at 8pm.

Houston, Tx- Andy is a young recluse who rarely leaves his closet and has a habit of soiling his pants when he's nervous. He's tortured by two neighborhood bullies, his mother works three jobs, and his sister is a slut. But things change once a visit is paid to Andy by the 19th century poetess, Emily Dickinson. This play was done once last year at Princeton University, and aside from that production, this will be its world premier! About the Playwright

Noah Haidle’s play Mr. Marmalade had its New York premiere at the Roundabout Theatre Company. His most recent play, Princess Marjorie, received its world premiere in 2005 at South Coast Repertory. Haidle’s Rag and Bone recently played at the Long Wharf Theatre. Haidle is currently working on new play commissions from Playwrights Horizons and Princeton University and a screenplay for Scott Rudin Productions. He is a graduate of Princeton University and the Julliard School. He is the recipient of the Helen Merrill Award for Emerging Playwrights, a NEA/TCG grant, and three Lincoln Center Le Compte Du Nuoy Awards.

Directed by Mildred’s Umbrella company member Alan Hall and featuring Eric Doss, Jennifer Decker, Julie Boneau, Greg Dean, David Anderson, Wayne Barnhill and Sara Gaston, “A Long History of Neglect” opens October 12 and runs through November 4, with shows on Fridays and Saturdays and two Mondays, October 16 and October 30.

I just heard about this show last night (I met a couple people who are in it at the FrenetiCore fundrasier), and it sounds damned amazing. I'm going to try and go next weekend to see it.
