Spread Love: Up Theater Company Presents Lost/Not Found

May 3 – 19
The Garret at Fort Washington Collegiate (729 W. 181st Street)

In Lost/Not Found, things do not go as planned when three desperate twenty-somethings from Washington Heights “rescue” a missing girl and detain her, while the growing reward for her return offers visions of riches. What they learn about themselves, however, may prove to be the more valuable bounty, as events take a dark turn.

Lost/Not Found is directed by Alex Keegan (The Young Goat – Kraine Theatre) with a cast including Andrew Manning, Devin Haqq* (Richard III/Born With Teeth – Epic Theatre Ensemble), Max Lebow (UP Theater’s Epic Poetry), Jamie Saunders (Gathering Sparks – Theatre Row), and Mariette Strauss (Sarah Flood in Salem Mass – The Flea Theater).

The creative team includes set design by Frank Oliva, costumes by Janet Mervin, lighting by Duane Pagano, sound design by David Margolin Lawson, fight direction by Ron Piretti, and stage management by Lisa Stafford.

UP Theater Company (James Bosley, Artistic Director) Eschewing crowd-pleasing chestnuts, UP Theater produces provocative new work by contemporary playwrights. Founded in 2010 by Inwood theater artists, UP is committed to bringing professional productions to Northern Manhattan. After 7 years and 10 full productions, UP has established a reputation for being gritty, rambunctious, and irreverent.

“One of the finest pieces of theatre I’ve seen in Off-Off Broadway Theater, more than enough to prove that Theater’s best is often happening in out of the way places.” UP Theater’s Epic Poetry, New York Theater Now
