The world premiere of Andy Bragen's solo show This Is My Office, staged by Davis McAllum, begins performances Nov. 5. 



Presented by The Play Company (PlayCo), This is My Office will officially open Nov. 11 and continue through Dec. 8.

The site-specific solo performance stars David Barlow (The Film Society, The Castle, Smashing).

"This Is My Office is a ghost story for the theatre, set in a disused office that becomes a character unto itself," press notes state. "One night, hunkered down in the office provided to him by an arts grant, eating his way through a box of donuts and battling intense writer's block, protagonist Andy Bragen discovers an old photograph that spurs a revelation: the very office he currently inhabits was once that of his father. As Andy delves deeper and deeper into his complicated and conflicted relationship with his recently deceased father, strange things begin to happen to him in the space as family and writing take on a symbiotic relationship. The office bridges the two Bragens' lives, and ultimately becomes an epic symbol of redemption, faith and love."

The creative team includes Andrew Boyce (set), Kaye Voyce (costumes), Tyler Micoleau (lighting) and Peter John Still (sound).

Performances of This Is My Office take place at chashama, located at 210 E. 43rd Street.
