NEED TO KNOW WORLD PREMIERE, ROGUE MACHINE FALL 2015

imagesSeptember will bring the World Premiere of NEED TO KNOW by Jonathan Caren. Lilly and Steven are moving…again. This time back East where they meet their enthusiastic new neighbor Mark. After Google-stalking him, they have a field day mocking his odd life…only to realize Mark heard everything they said about him in the apartment next door. Can they repair the damage, or did the trash-talk go too far? When Mark digs into their lives, he discovers a secret that not even Lilly knows about Steven. A play about the ways we process the information we discover about each other online, and just how much we need to know. Jonathan Caren‘s plays include The Recommendation (IAMA 2014, The Flea 2013, Old Globe 2012, Craig Noel Award, Best New Play, 2014 Ovation, Best Play, NAACP nomination), The Morning The Sun Fell (MTC 7@7 2013), Let Me Go (2013 Rattlestick Fest, JPP), Catch The Fish (Most Outstanding Play, NY Fringe) and The Venerable Raman Gupta (Flea First Look Series, Sundance Finalist, New Group 2014 New Works Lab) and the forthcoming The House That Jake Built (IAMA 2015). His work has been developed at The Manhattan Theater Club, The Roundabout Underground, Williamstown, and in The Samuel French OOB Festival, The Old Vic in London, and others.
