Novel

By Anna Zeigler
Directed by Michael Goldfried


A man on deadline to write his next novel has fastidiously denied mourning the loss of his wife. An odd collection of conventioneers who share the same hotel begin to invade his consciousness, pushing him closer to writing that which he is most afraid to face in his own life.

“Working with Michael was a complete pleasure! He is a superb director – that rare combination of exciting theatrical instinct and keen dramaturgical eye. He makes rehearsals fun, and celebrates everyone’s discoveries. He’s generous, smart as a whip, and kind. Anyone would be lucky to work with him.”
Anna Zeigler, author of “Novel” and “Photograph 51”
“Savvy, observant and highly collaborative, he’s a superb young director of new work”.
Paula Vogel, author of “How I learned to Drive” and “The Long Christmas Ride Home”
