by Gabe McKinley
starring James Roday & Michael Weston
produced by Dule Hill & James Roday
directed by Wayne Kasserman
James Roday, star of the hit television series “Psych,” and Michael Weston of TV’s “House” will play two friends on a reckless weekend in Gabe McKinley’s new play EXTINCTION, previewing Off-Broadway on Feb 13, 2010 prior to its official press opening February 17 at the Cherry Lane Theatre in Manhattan. Wayne Kasserman directs.
Mr. Roday and Mr. Weston reprise their roles Off-Broadway in EXTINCTION following its acclaimed, sold-out run this past fall in Los Angeles at the Elephant Space theatre in Hollywood in a production praised by Variety as “the creative meat of a truly talented writer a very dark view of the sexes.” The L.A. Times wrote that the play “enters unexplored, murky corners and is uniquely unsettling.”
With a cast featuring James Roday, Michael Weston, Amanda Detmer and Stefanie E. Frame, EXTINCTION is Mr. McKinley’s play about what transpires between two college buddies whose annual outing of male-bonding and debauchery veers precipitously off course when unmet expectations spiral into a volatile showdown.
EXTINCTION will be presented Off-Broadway by RED DOG SQUADRON in association with the Cherry Lane Theatre. The actor Dule Hill, Mr. Roday’s co-star on “Psych,” is also a producer of the play.
