APRIL'S PRESS RELEASE

So, tickets are now on sale for April's Fool, and we are in full promotion mode. That means many emails, Facebook invites, text messages, tweets, and whatever else it takes to fill those seats, and to get the members of the press to show up- because, love them or not, a good review can make all the difference for a show- especially if you don't have thousands of dollars to spend on publicity. We've gotten some responses, and a little traction already- in fact, the first article about the show came out last week on Broadwayworld.com, and the hope is that this is a harbinger of things to come. You can click HERE to see that article. I also did an interview for Indie Theater Now about the process of writing the show- you can see that HERE. And soon, also on Indie Theater Now, you will be able to read our director Bronwen Carson's thoughts on the play.

And if you are planning on coming, I will be at the opening performance- August 9 at 4:15 at the Connelly Theatre. Get you tickets now by clicking HERE.

So, there you are. And below you can see our official press release.

APRIL`S FOOL
NYC Fringe Festival 2014
New York Hamlet Productions is proud to announce the world premiere of April’s Fool, a new
play by Kelly McAllister, directed by Bronwen Carson. Performances will take place at The
Connelly Theater, 220 East 4th St on:

SAT 8/9 4:15 - 6:15, SUN 8/17 6:30 - 8:30, WED 8/20 2:00 - 4:00,
FRI 8/22 9:30 - 11:30 and SUN 8/24 NOON - 2:00

At a costume party on April Fool’s Day in the East Village of Manhattan, Fate arrives in the guise
of a Norn (Norse Goddess of Fate) and, over 24 hours, toys with the lives of four young New
Yorkers as they struggle with love, life and entanglement. As time and space shift, we follow
these characters through a varied Manhattan landscape that includes an East Village
apartment, a hipster bar and Central Park. Lies are told, confidences shattered and the fabric of
reality itself is questioned.

The cast features Liz Conway, Ian Campbell Dunn (The Leftovers/HBO), Heather McAllister,
Casey Shane and Sarah Wharton.

Kelly McAllister, a three time veteran of FringeNYC, is an award winning playwright whose
work has been published and produced all over the world, from NYC to Prague to Sao Paulo.
His play Last Call won the Excellence in Playwriting award in FringeNYC 2002. Other plays
include: Burning the Old Man (NYIT 2005 Outstanding Full Length Play) and Hela and Troy
(Finalist Humana Festival Heideman award 2010). His plays have been published by Applause
Books, Playscripts Inc., Smith & Kraus and NYTE.

Bronwen Carson is an accomplished director/choreographer based in NYC. Credits
include: Viva America (Broadway Workshop), The Cherry Orchard (Off-Broadway), In The Key of
Cy (Off-Broadway), Myopia (Neighborhood Playhouse) and Dim Sum(Neighborhood Playhouse).

Producer Craig Nobbs was recently Associate Producer on SAM, a feature film co-written and
directed by Nicholas Brooks and Producer on the film The Cat’s Cradle, written by Tawny
Sorensen and directed by David Spaltro. He is an award winning playwright and screenwriter
and a graduate of NYU Tisch School of the Arts’ Dramatic Writing Program.
