RED DOG HOWLS

WRITTEN BY ALEXANDER DINELARIS

DIRECTED BY KEN RUS SCHMOLL

BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5
OPENING NIGHT SET FOR MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24

New York Theatre Workshop (NYTW) Artistic Director James C. Nicola and Managing Director William Russo have announced that Red Dog Howls, written by Alexander Dinelaris and directed by Ken Rus Schmoll, will begin performances Wednesday, September 5, 2012, at 7pm at NYTW, 79 East 4 Street, between Bowery and Second Avenue.  Opening night is scheduled for Monday, September 24 at 7pm.

Award-winning actress Kathleen Chalfant (Angels in America, Wit) returns to New York Theatre Workshop in a landmark role, joining Florencia Lozano and Alfredo Narciso in the cast of this New York premiere.

A box of old letters and a father’s dying wish lead Michael Kiriakos to dig up the buried secrets of his family history.  After a series of mysterious encounters with Rose, a captivating elderly Armenian woman, Michael eventually uncovers a past he never knew existed—one of exile, sacrifice and ultimately redemption.  Red Dog Howls explores the horror of a forgotten genocide, the enduring strength of the human spirit and how the choices we make for our children will—for better or worse—reverberate for generations to come.

Alexander Dinelaris is currently working in the West End on the stage adaptation of The Bodyguard.  His off-Broadway credits include Still Life (MCC); The Chaos Theories (Shotgun Theatre); In This, Our Time; Big Kids; Zanna Don't! (two Drama Desk nominations).  Mr. Dinelaris has worked on Folding the Monster (staged readings with Rosie O'Donnell and Danny Aiello).  Most recently, he worked with director Alejandro Gonzales-Innaritu (Babel, 21 Grams) on his newest film.  Mr. Dinelaris attended Barry University, where he received the Mac McKindree scholarship for drama.  He is a member of the Dramatists Guild and an NYTW Usual Suspect.
