Alex Dmitriev Crosses the Pond to Direct Ken Jaworowski’s STRAIGHT TO THE HEART

2cc1bfd86-bce6-0b71-e96c6d8ec2395d77

Lunchtime Theatre to Return to the West End with STRAIGHT TO THE HEART

Director Alex Dmitriev is bringing lunchtime theatre back to the West End, with three heartfelt and provocative short plays by American playwright Ken Jaworowski.

In each play, the characters’ alternating monologues lead you on an unexpected journey. Pulse – a son tells of confronting his father about his sexuality; a father teaches his son to stand up to bullies with lasting consequences; and a daughter takes her father on one last trip. One to the Head, One to the Heart – a father’s dream of a large family is set aside by the financial burden of caring for a disabled child, or is it? The Truth Tellers – a night out for two lonely people, will their lies keep them apart?

Alistair Brown, Nadia Shash and Daniel Simpson, under the direction of Alex Dmitriev, perform in each of the three plays. Ken Jaworowski is a staff editor for The New York Times. His play Acts of Redemption recently appeared at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, while Believers, directed by Alex Dmitriev, was produced by the Workshop Theater Company in New York. Other plays include Never Missed a Day, Certain Souls and Interchange, which has been published by Broadway Play Publishing.

Alistair Brown’s recent credits includes Mr Perks in The Railway Children (National Tour). Nadia Shash trained at Birmingham School of Acting, and her recent credits include: The Bible (Shakespeare’s Globe), As You Like It and The Taming of the Shrew (Cambridge Shakespeare Festival), Much Ado About Nothing (The Scoop), The Wrong Sleep (Cock Tavern) and Stovepipe (HighTide/Bush Theatre/National Theatre). Daniel Simpson trained at East 15 and The Actor Works. Theatre credits include: Doonreagan (Jermyn Street Theatre), London Road (National Theatre) and Driving Miss Daisy (Julian Stonman UK – National Tour).

Alex Dmitriev, a New York based freelance director, has worked at regional theaters across the United States and Canada. His work in NYC has been at The Actors’ Studio, The York Theater Co. Irish Rep and the Abingdon Theater Company among others. In London, he directed Doonreagan (Jermyn Street Theatre) about Poet Laureate TEd Hughes and his mistress, Assia Wevill.

We honor Ken and observe this most deserved accolade for our friend and colleague.
