Written By Stage, TV & Film Actor Amanda Peet
Renowned silver screen and TV performer Amanda Peet continues her debut as a remarkable new voice in theater at the Geffen Playhouse as part of its brand new 2018/19 season. The Whole Nine Yards actor presents Our Very Own Carlin McCullough, the tale of the meteoric rise of a young tennis phenomenon and the pitfalls of growing up to become a champion.
Directed by close Geffen collaborator Tyne Rafaeli, the world premiere production centers on the relationship between 10 year-old Carlin McCullough, her single mother and her coach, both of whom think they know how to build a bright future for the young tennis star in their own way. The work follows Peet's critically praised writing debut in the Commons Of Pensacola, which starred Jessica Sarah Parker and Blythe Danner during its New York Manhattan Theater Club run in 2013.
