PICKED UP is drama about a chance meeting between two men in a New York City bar that turns into a strange, seductive game of cat and mouse, and may uncover truths from their past. The drama was inspired by real events Mr. Manjovi’s life, and top stories and news events, which are close to the playwright’s heart. “While dealing with the lingering effects of my own trauma, the 2006 hate-crime case of Michael Sandy in Brooklyn popped into my head. Upon further research, I tracked down and interviewed the jury foreman of that trial, and his girlfriend, at his apartment in Brooklyn. The conversation touched off very powerful feelings within me. The above, combined with last summer’s explosive Brett Kavanaugh hearings, seeing two people remember the same event completely differently were the motivations for the play.” says Manjovi. PICKED UP is directed by Christopher Scott. Donna Trinkoff is the General Manager. Casting is being handled by Paul Fouquet of Elissa Meyers Casting. Please make a note of the dates.
