EDINBURGH ENCORE SIGNAL FAILURE NEW DATES/TIMES AT SOHO PLAYHOUSE

“I really enjoyed it…actors were both so good, so charming, really believable…Sasha Ellen has a great furture as a playwright and actor.” – Broadway Radio 

“Well performed, short, gritty two-character romantic comedy…very enjoyable…two outstanding performances.” –Theaterscene.net“Both Ellen and Cowan were lovely in their roles and showed the loneliness and hope of young people living in often anonymous big cities…

Signal Failure is definitely a success.” *** RaveReviews“A genuinely fresh look at not only relationships, but also modern city life.” ****

The Scotsman“Rife with cheeky humour, an upfront and witty script and two brilliantly funny performances. Definitely recommended!” **** Broadway Baby

“Bittersweet, honest and truthful romantic comedy with emotional heart.” **** The Edinburgh Guide

New York, NY — October 28, 2014: The SOHO PLAYHOUSE run of the highly acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe Encore of Sasha Ellen’s SIGNAL FAILURE, directed by Peter Darney (BBC Radio’s Kindness “Pick of the week”-The Telegraph) has amended its performance schedule to Mondays, Thursday, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3pm and 7:30pm. The limited engagement at SoHo Playhouse (15 Vandam Street, NYC), began Wednesday, October 8 and will continue through Sunday, November 16.

Big-city-virgin, Lorna, and reclusive night chef (kind-of stalker), Brian, journey through life, love, and London’s transport system, until the Missed-Connections brings them together. Brief encounters give way to awkward sexual encounters-but the course of London transport never did run smooth. Expect accidents, delays, and severe signal failure as two damaged people try to cross the gap in this twisted romantic comedy.

The production stars Sasha Ellen as Lorna and Spencer Cowan (Downton Abbey) as Brian.

The production features lighting design by Sherry Coenen (Royal Shakespeare Company, Battersea Arts Center, Donmar Warehouse).

SIGNAL FAILURE plays the following schedule:
