About you don't have to do anything

Teddy hopes to find closure on the time in his life with Clark, a former classmate, and brings us into the past where it all began: 7th grade at a new school in the early 2000s. After being shunned by the rest of their classmates, Teddy and Clark have a sleepover that takes an unexpected and uncomfortable direction. They then fall out of touch when Clark is expelled until Teddy receives an AIM message from Clark late in the night.

The conversation incites an online communication over a decade that’s part friendship, part adversary, part sexual exploration. As their communication progresses, it bleeds into Teddy’s own life and sense of intimacy, identity, and sexuality. Teddy once again fails to find closure in re-telling this experience to an audience and forces us to question our own perception of what really happened.

you don’t have to do anything. is written by Ryan Drake (Roller Dynasty), directed by Ryan Dobrin (Merrily We Roll Along), and produced by Will Arbery (Pulitzer Finalist, Heroes of the Fourth Turning), Leigh Honigman (No Good Things Dwell in the Flesh), and Joey Nasta (Stupid F**cking Bird). The cast includes Yaron Lotan (“Fleishman Is in Trouble”, Dead Poets Society) as Teddy, Will Dagger (Corsicana, Uncle Vanya) as Clark, Andrea Abello (Hindsight, Passage) as Enid, and Miles Elliot (Off-Broadway debut) as Guy & Others. Further casting will be announced. The creative team includes Cat Raynor (Scenic & Props Design), Bentley Heydt and Molly Tiede (Lighting Design), Christopher Vergara (Costume Design), Carsen Joenk (Sound Design), and Zack Lobel (Projections Design). Alex Might joins as Fight & Intimacy Director (How to Defend Yourself, RENT).
