Jesse Eisenberg - Jesse Eisenberg's Play To Debut In New York
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).
