More plays up Coen's sleeve

June 19, 2008|From the Associated Press

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ethan Coen scored last season at the Atlantic Theater Company in New York with "Almost an Evening," a trio of one-act comedies that marked his playwriting debut.

Now he will return to the Atlantic with "Offices," another collection of plays, which will be part of the Atlantic's 2008-09 season, Artistic Director Neil Pepe announced Wednesday.

The three new comedies dealing with workplace stresses and strains will open next spring. Pepe directs. With his brother Joel, Coen has made movies including "Fargo," "Raising Arizona," "Barton Fink" and this year's Oscar winner for best picture, "No Country for Old Men."

The Atlantic's new season will also include a revival of Martin McDonagh's "The Cripple of Inishmaan" and "Farragut North," Beau Willimon's play about Washington politics and power.
