Soho Playhouse presents – The All-Americans’s production of SCHOOLED, written by Lisa Lewis and directed by James Kautz Oct 5-17


After a critically acclaimed, sold-out run at The New York International Fringe Festival, and a FringeNYC Overall Excellence Award for Playwriting honor, the Soho Playhouse (15 Vandam St. in NYC) will present The All-Americans’s production of SCHOOLED, written by Lisa Lewis and directed by James Kautz (Artistic Director of The Amoralists), as part of the Fringe Encore Series, running October 5 – 17.

I hope you’ll consider covering or reviewing the show, and including it in any type of Fringe Encore Series coverage that you may be working on this year. The play explores sexual politics in the university setting, and the widening chasm between economic class and the opportunities for success. Lisa, James and the cast are available for interviews.

The press dates are Mon 10/5 at 7pm, Fri 10/9 at 9:30pm, Sat 10/10 at 7pm, Sun 10/11 at 7pm and Sat 10/17 at 7pm.

SCHOOLED is a fiercely funny and gripping new play about privilege, ambition, and the lengths we’ll go to succeed. Two university students vie for a competitive grant from their roguish professor in a taut threesome that tests their romantic relationship and their ethics. A biting drama with surprising humor, SCHOOLED is a searing examination of entitlement and envy, the lies we tell ourselves, and the truths we refuse to believe.

Critics’ Pick: “Four stars! Wised-up and whip-smart, Lisa Lewis’s SCHOOLED is remarkable. An elegant, fun, seriocomic love triangle that moves smoothly and bristles with stinging lines and rich, unpredictable characters.” (David Cote, Time Out NY)

“Competing drives and complicated ethics fuse in Lisa Lewis’s sexy and snarled SCHOOLED.” (Alexis Soloski, The NY Times)

“Brilliant! SCHOOLED has the makings of one of the Fringe premieres that ends up making a mainstream splash.” (Emily Shire, The Daily Beast)

The New York Post noted SCHOOLED as a Fringe “Pick,” and called it “A promising show at the Fringe.” Metro NY called the show a “Can’t-miss play” and “Best Bet” at the Fringe, and Playbill featured the play as one of the top “5 Fringe Shows That Will Get You Talking.”

The three-member cast includes Quentin Maré (Broadway: Rock ‘n’ Roll, Coram Boy, Julius Caesar), Lilli Stein (HBO’s “Veep,” Job at The Flea) and Stephen Friedrich (CBS’s “Elementary,” ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore directed by Jesse Berger).
