Mad Dog Theatre Company is thrilled to congratulate Chisa Hutchinson on her 2012 New York Innovative Theatre Award nomination for Outstanding Original Short Script for Mad Dog’s production of This Is Not The Play.
We are delighted that this year’s judges – audience members and our fellow artists of all levels in the Off-Off-Broadway community – saw fit not only to honor Chisa’s courageous and thought-provoking words, but Mad Dog’s first commissioned play and enthusiastic dedication to producing new, original work.
This Is Not The Play’s nomination for Outstanding Original Short Script reaffirms our ongoing commitment as a company to giving early-career and underrepresented playwrights a forum where their voices can be heard, loud and clear.
You can check out photos from the production here.

For our final interview, we are happy to steal Kevin O’Callaghan from his hectic schedule for a quick chat. Staying close to his character in the play, we decided to have our tête-à-tête over a sushi lunch in New York’s most iconic hotel.

This week, we are posting two interviews with Mad Dog company members, Kevin O’Callaghan and Nicole Samsel. These two don many hats within the company but we caught up with them as actors in our explosive new production of The Thrill of the Chase written by British playwright (who came to visit us in New York) Philip Gawthorne. Be sure to catch up on all of our past interviews with the creative team by clicking here. Finally, keep your eyes peeled this weekend, mate, when we finally pin Kevin O’Callaghan down for an interview. Crikey!
We caught up with Nicole Samsel earlier this week after an exhilarating opening week and asked her about the ride so far. Nicole spoke of the unexpected challenges she faced during rehearsal, how the audience is responding to the play and firmly warns us to not judge Izzy so easily.
It’s an exciting week for us here at Mad Dog Theatre Company. We have pitched our tent at The Drilling Company Theater, just in time for our opening night of The Thrill of the Chase tomorrow, February 16. In the meantime, we continue our series of interviews this week with the creative forces behind the production of this electrifying new play. Browse through all of our previous interviews and read their insights on what thrills them about this potent new production. Secure your tickets here and we hope to see you at the theatre.
For the premiere of his play The Thrill of the Chase, British playwright Philip Gawthorne has joined us in New York for the final week of rehearsal and we took this opportunity to invite him into the hot seat. In this special interview, Literary Manager Heather Kelley spoke to Philip about his inspiration for this provocative new play, the play’s assimilation from the UK to the US, and what really goes on in the back seat of a Maserati six nights out of the week.

It’s Valentine’s Day, but we let Cupid lend his arrows to our director Joel Waage, who shoots his answers out to us in the hopes that we will flutter ever so lightly to catch his next production, The Thrill of the Chase. Joel took a walk through Central Park with our Literary Manager, Heather Kelley, and spoke of his experience directing this cast, the evolution of masculinity in the play and how the two female characters fit into all this.
This weekend, we continue our interviews with the cast of The Thrill of the Chase. On Friday, we spoke to Ryan Barrentine, who confessed to the work that still needs to be done prior to opening night this Thursday, February 16th. Ryan expressed his familiarity with some of the situations his character Nicky finds himself in, as well as having to rehearse other moments that are just “…quite grotesque.” Read his full interview here and purchase your tickets here to judge for yourself how ‘grotesque’ these characters can get.
Today, we catch up with another wonderful talent gracing the stage, Jenna D’Angelo. On break from rehearsal, she spills the beans on why she loves her character Faith, how she’s conquering the climax of the play, and why it would be worth your time to stick around after the show for a drink (or two).
As promised, we are sitting down with each of the artists responsible for bringing Mad Dog’s next production, The Thrill of the Chase, to theatres this Thursday February 16th. We last spoke to Heather Kelley, our Literary Manager, who shared with us why this play stood out from the many submissions we received and why despite its frequent comparison to Mamet and LaBute, the play is not misogynistic.

The Thrill Of The Chase
a new play by Philip Gawthorne
Thursday, February 16, 2012 through Sunday, March 04, 2012
Perversion. Brutality. Debauchery. What else are friends for?
The Thrill Of The Chase explores a volatile, highly complex relationship between two lifelong friends; the carefree, womanising playboy Charlie, and the hard-working, timid Nicky, who share a stunning penthouse apartment in the heart of the city. When Nicky unexpectedly announces his intentions to turn his back on the bachelor lifestyle and marry his troubled girlfriend Izzy, the affronted Charlie suggests a perverse wager, which will ultimately threaten not only their friendship, but their very existence…
