The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg is set to take to the stage in New York later this year (11) to star in a play he wrote himself.
The Oscar-nominated actor's play Asuncion will open Off-Broadway in October (11) and he will tackle one of the lead roles in the tale of two liberal students whose ideals are challenged when a young Filipina girl becomes their new roommate.
The production, to be held at Manhattan's Cherry Lane Theatre, will be Eisenberg's debut as a playwright, while he last appeared on the New York stage in an Off-Broadway production of Lucy Thurber's Scarcity in 2007.
He has also written another play called The Revisionist, as well as putting together the score and lyrics to a musical, titled Me Time!
Asuncion will open on 27 October (11).
