NEW YORK, NY, Apr. 23, 2015 – Cameron ClarkeMatthew Hansen and Kimberly Nordstrom will lead the cast of MANUSCRIPT, a dark comedy written by Paul Grellong and directed by Paige Fridell. Performances begin May 8, 2015 at Theatre Row.

Three college freshmen are partying in Brooklyn Heights before a fancy holiday ball. One of them runs to score drugs and returns with shocking news: their dealer has overdosed. Armed with a stack of papers that will change their lives forever, three friends will stop at nothing in a quest for revenge where deception rules, little is what it seems and no one can be trusted. The play hurtles towards a surprise ending that leaves everyone breathless.
