Queens Theatre (QT) is pleased to announce its production of Sandy Rustin’s THE COTTAGE, a romantic comedy directed by Adam Dannheisser (Rock of Ages, resident director/performer). THE COTTAGE, which returns to Queens after a successful run at the Astoria Performing Arts Center, will play a two week limited engagement at Queens Theatre (14 United Nations Avenue South, Flushing Meadows Corona Park). Performances begin Friday, November 7 and continue through Sunday, November 16. Performances are Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 2pm and 8pm, Sundays at 3pm, with an additional matinee on Friday, November 14 at 2pm. Tickets are available at www.queenstheatre.org and range from $25-$42.

Press are invited to all performances.

THE COTTAGE is a rollicking farce in the style of Noel Coward. Set in the English countryside in 1923, this tale of sex, betrayal and, oh yes, love, unfolds when a beautiful British bird decides to expose her love affair to her husband and her lover’s wife. The true meanings of fate, identity and marriage are called into question as a surprising, hilarious web of secrets unravels in this delightful—and potentially murderous—romantic comedy.

The production stars Daniel Bielinski* (Macbeth, Classic Stage Company), Maria Couch* (On the Levee, Lincoln Center), Michelle Federer*, Bailey Frankenberg, Jason Loughlin* (1st Nat’l Tour: War Horse), and Justin Packard*.

Scenic Design is by Stephen K. Dobay, Costume design by Ryan J. Moller and Lighting Design by Evan Roby. Janie Bullard is Sound Designer, Katie K. White is Props Designer, Deidre Works* is the Production Stage Manager. Publicity is by Katie Rosin/Kampfire PR.
