Whorl Inside A Loop Will World Premiere At 2econd Stage

2econd Stage Theatre (Carole Rothman, Artistic Director, Casey Reitz, Executive Director) has announced additional casting for its upcoming world premiere production of Whorl Inside A Loop, a new play by Dick Scanlan and Sherie Rene Scott, co-directed by Michael Mayer and Mr. Scanlan, who created the Tony-nominated, critically acclaimed hit, Everyday Rapture, which had its world premiere at Second Stage Theatre in 2009.2st

Previously announced star Sherie Rene Scott will be joined by Derrick Baskin (…Spelling Bee), Nicholas Christopher (Motown), Chris Myers (An Octoroon), Ryan Quinn (King Lear), Daniel J. Watts (In the Heights), and Donald Webber, Jr. (Motown).

Performances are set to begin August 4, 2015 at 2econd Stage Theatre’s Tony Kiser Theatre (305 West 43rd street). Season subscriptions are currently available through or by calling the box office at 212-246-4422.

Here’s how 2econd Stage is billing the production:

“A well-regarded actress agrees to teach six inmates how to tell their stories behind the bars of a men’s maximum security prison. Sharing intimate and sometimes hilarious details of their former lives, this unlikely group forms a bond — even as the actress’ life outside spins out of control. And when what happens in prison doesn’t stwhorl 1ay there, no one is sure who to trust. From the team that brought you Everyday Rapture, this new play features Sherie Rene Scott and six men playing two dozen characters in a constant shifting of scenes, ages, genders and races. Whorl Inside A Loop explores the fine line between convicted felons and the criminal inside each of us, the viability of forgiveness and the unreliability of redemption.”
