"Breathless" is a story of two people from opposite spectra colliding on a train one late night in Chicago, Illinois. A young woman from the suburbs and a wannabe thug from the inner city engage in a unique conversation that forces them to discover they are more similar than they thought. Both people are trapped in a world they do not want to live in, a world in which both people are dying to breathe. Stacy Osei-Kuffour has had readings, workshops, and productions of her plays all over New York City. Readings include: "Breathless" (produced by TMTC) and "Red Red" (produced by On the Square Productions) at New World Stages. Workshops include: "Breathless," which she co-directed and starred in (Downtown Urban Theater Festival) and "In the Evening," in which she co-directed and starred (Stella Adler Studio of Acting). Productions include: "The Painter," which was a finalist for Best Play of 2010 in the Strawberry Festival of One-Acts (American Theatre of Actors) and the Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Festival (Lion Theater). She received her BFA at NYU Tisch School of the Arts/Stella Adler Studio. Michael Sutherland directed "The Painter" in the Strawberry Festival, where it was a finalist for Best Play 2010, and at the Samuel French OOB Festival 2011. He co-directed and starred in "Breathless" (Theater for the New City) and "In the Evening" (Stella Adler Studio) both plays by Stacy Osei-Kuffour. Upcoming stage credits include acting in "Killing John Grisham" at Fringe NYC. Sutherland received his BFA NYU Tisch School of the Arts/Stella Adler Studio. www.michaeldsutherland.com
