Secret Theatre Updates Greek Tragedy

Playwright Tom Rowan combines Greek tragedy with cutting edge comedy to present “Faye Drummond,” part of the UnFringed Festival at The Secret Theatre in Long Island City.

“Faye Drummond” runs August 17 at 9:15 pm;

August 20 at 8:45 pm; and

August 21 at 3 pm at The

Secret Theatre, 44-02 23rd

St., Long Island City.

Featured in the cast are Renee Bang Allen (“Company” on Broadway) as Faye Drummond; with Peter Reznikoff (“Irena’s Vow” on Broadway); Geena Quintos (“A Chorus Line” national tour); Andrew Gelles, Caleb Schaaf, and Bob Angelini.

Faye Drummond, the trophy wife of the fifth-richest man in America, lives in luxury in a penthouse overlooking Central Park. She's the woman who has everything, but she wants the one thing she can't have: her handsome stepson, Paul Letos.

With apologies to Euripides and Racine, “Faye Drummond” updates the Greek myth of Phaedra and Hippolytus to contemporary New York, with uproarious results.
