Cherry Lane Theatre (Angelina Fiordellisi, Founder; Seri Lawrence, Artistic Director) will conclude its Obie Award-winning Mentor Project with The Climb, written by C.A. Johnson.

The Climb follows Tiffany, a 30-year-old, directionless woman who is the sole subject of her wife’s photography career. So when she absconds on a month-long hiking trip to think, both women find themselves questioning everything from the future of their marriage to the true meaning of a moment captured in time.
The cast features Erin Anderson (NYC: Sleep No More), Sharlene Cruz (NYC: Den of Thieves), Alex Hurt
Broadway: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), and Renika Williams (Regional: PIPELINE, A Raisin in the Sun).
The creative team includes set design by Lawrence E. Moten III, costume design by Andy Jean, lighting design by Stacey Derosier, sound design by Z Worthington, casting by Eisenberg/Beans Casting, general management by Mott/Fischer Productions, production management by Iron Bloom Creative Production, and Seth Betzler is the Production Stage Manager.
The Mentor Project, winner of an Obie Award for its dedication to helping early-career playwrights develop new work, each year partners emerging authors with seasoned professionals for a year of script work, rewrites, casting, rehearsals and a full production at Cherry Lane. Mentor Project is also the recipient of the James Kirkwood Award for American Playwrights.
This marks the 21st year of the Mentor Project which has helped develop works by playwrights such as Jocelyn Bioh, Sheila Callaghan, Sam Forman, Katori Hall, Rajiv Joseph, Antoinette Nwandu, Christopher Shinn, Jen Silverman, Bridgette Wimberly, and Anne Washburn.
One of the most renowned theatres in the country, Cherry Lane Theatre has produced a large succession of plays by leading writers from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Gertrude Stein, Samuel Beckett, Edward Albee, and Harold Pinter. Cherry Lane Theatre was founded by Angelina Fiordellisi in 1996 and remains devoted to developing and producing new works for the stage. Seri Lawrence is Artistic Director, Reed Ridgley is Development Manager, Sangeeta Bhagat is Director of Individual and Corporate Giving, Lex Morton is Facility Manager, and Mary Geerlof is Director of Community Engagement.
