Like Theresa Rebeck, Gina Gionfriddo is a playwright who has had a distinctly separate commercial career — in particular, as a contributor of teleplays to Law & Order — thus joining the growing ranks of successful, in-demand contemporary female writers for stage, screen and TV. Washington, D.C.-native Gionfriddo’s Becky Shaw, which receives its Nashville premiere courtesy of Actors Bridge Ensemble, got its world premiere at the Humana Festival of New American Plays in Louisville. Since its 2009 New York production and subsequent nomination for a Pulitzer, the play was presented in London before it made the regional U.S. rounds, and it impressed critics and audiences alike with its sharp dialogue and surprising, sometimes bizarre twists. It’s a dramedy of manners, family and relationships involving troubled modern people — some more emotionally dangerous than others — and ABE director Bill Feehely has gathered together a cast of well-respected players who should be up to the challenge: Evelyn O’Neal Brush, Nathaniel McIntyre, Eric D. Pasto-Crosby, Jennifer Richmond (in the title role) and Debbie Kraski.
