    As the sixth and final production of its 2003/2004 Season, Playwrights Horizons (Tim Sanford, Artistic Director; Leslie Marcus, Managing Director) will present the World Premiere of FABULATION or, The Re-Education of Undine, a new play by Lynn Nottage (Intimate Apparel; Crumbs From the Table of Joy; Mud, River, Stone). Directed by Kate Whoriskey (the world premiere productions of Intimate Apparel at Center Stage and Drowning Crow at The Goodman), previews will begin Thursday, June 3 with an official opening on Sunday, June 13 at 7:00 PM. Performances will continue through Sunday, June 27 at Playwrights Horizons' Peter Jay Sharp Theater (416 West 42nd Street). The cast will feature Tony nominee and Obie winner Charlayne Woodard (Ain't Misbehavin', In the Blood, Pretty Fire, Hang on to the Good Times), recent Juilliard graduate Daniel Breaker, Saidah Arrika Ekulona (Well at The Public; A Streetcar Named Desire at NYTW; Breath, Boom at Yale Rep), Stephen Kunken (The Journals of Mihail Sebastian, Proof), Robert Montano (Kiss of the Spider Woman, On the Town), Melle Powers (Off-Broadway debut, regular on "The Dave Chapelle Show"), Keith Randolph Smith (King Hedley II, Jitney) and Myra Lucretia Taylor (Nine, Electra). FABULATION concerns Undine (Charlayne Woodard), a successful publicist who, upon finding herself pregnant and broke, is plunged into a topsy-turvy world of welfare mothers and drug addicts, and forced to confront the family she left behind. FABULATION is a darkly comic, modern day companion piece to Lynn Nottage's current, award-winning Intimate Apparel.
