Sal Cesare

PLAYWRIGHT/DIRECTOR

Sal Cesare has been scribbling dialogue on yellow legal pads since the early 70s, eventually studying theatre at Northeastern University (Boston, Massachusetts) and the University at Albany, State University of New York (Albany, New York), before moving to New York City in the late 80s to pursue a playwrighting and directing career in the theatre.

Founding Selectwork Productions in 1977, Sal produced and directed a number of his own plays, seven in all, from 1977-1990, productions of his own work included KNOCK TWICE IF YOU’RE NOT REALLY THERE, QUARTER PAST ALIVE, and an early, one-act version of VIRGINS DIE HORNY. Selectwork also presented productions of Luigi Pirandello’s SIX CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF AN AUTHOR, and a double bill of Eugene’s Inoesco’s shorter works, THE LESSON and THE CHAIR. Selectwork also presented readings of works-in-progress submitted by local playwrights.

The last production of Selectwork Production’s earlier life was an Off-Off Broadway production of FEAR OF BREATHING  at the West Bank Cafe in New York’s mid-town theatre district.

Playwright-Sal CesareSal stepped away from a career focus in the theatre in the early 1990s, disbanding Selectwork Productions until its recent re-emergence in the UK to produce a four week run of VIRGINS DIE HORNY at The Courtyard Theatre in London’s fashionable Shoreditch area.

Sal has recently resurrected Selectwork Productions to launch the UK premiere of VIRGINS DIE HORNY. Beyond this production, Sal hopes to utilise his Selectwork Production brand to create a body of theatrical and cinematic work that will challenge, entice, and entertain.
