WILD HOUSE PRODUCTIONS, INC. is pleased to announce the New York Premiere of Meir Ribalow�s SHRUNKEN HEADS, directed by Angela Astle. SHRUNKEN HEADS will play one-week only at Off-Broadway�s Peter Jay Sharp Theater (416 West 42nd Street.) Performances begin Thursday, August 27 and continue through Sunday, August 30.

Dr. Bob Hyde, a successful psychiatrist, just wants to have a quiet, peaceful weekend at his country estate, where he can commune with nature and relax in his Jacuzzi, far away from his patients. No such luck. The various women in his life interfere–from his neurotic patient Dorothy Putney, to his daughter Caroline and ex-wife Jennifer, determined to drain him of all his money. Head games come alive in this fast paced farce, where family drama plus biting wit equals Shrunken Heads: a case of high comedy.

The production stars David Gelles-Hurwitz (Close Ties (EST), Edgewise, Thicker Than Water) as Carlyle Peckinpah III, Diana Henry (After The Rain (Theatre Four), Joined At The Head, No Exit) as Jennifer Todhunter Hyde, Mel House (Conquest of the Universe, East of the Sun, West of the Moon (Baltimore’s Center Stage),4960) as Polly Hyde, Allison Layman (Monomoy Theatre in Chatham, MA) as Caroline Hyde, Ean Sheehy (Forensic Accountant Joshua Simmons on Law & Order Criminal Intent, Precious, Sundance (EST) as Norman Putney, introducing Kim Weiler as Dorothy Putney and Stephen Alan Wilson (What We Planned For, The Complete History of America, Abridged) as Robert Hyde.
