Kate Mendeloff and the RC Visiting Artists program welcome Alice Eve Cohen, playwright, author and actor, for a production of "Thin Walls" -- a play about a microcosm of the urban landscape at a turbulent time in New York City's history. Set in a century-old residential building, once elegant and now run-down, the darkly humorous and deeply moving play interweaves the stories of the building's long-time residents, its recent arrivals and its ghosts, as the end of the 20th century approaches.
Alice Eve Cohen's plays and solo pieces have been produced around the world. Ms. Cohen has also written for television, and her fiction has been published by Simon and Schuster and Heinenmann Press. She has received fellowships, grants and commissions from New York State Council on the ARts, Dance Theatre Workshop and the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as an Emmy Award Commendation and numerous awards from Poets and Writers, Meet the Composer andASCAP. She received her BA from Princeton University and her MFA from the New School University, where she teaches solo theatre. She works with Lincoln Center Institute, and is the founding editor-in-chief of Theatre Development Fund's educational theatre journal, Play by Play.
