terraNOVA Collective and IRT Theater present the New York Premiere of LAST CALL, by Terri Girvin. Directed by Drama Desk Award nominee Michael Leeds (Broadway's Swinging On A Star) with an integrated soundscape by Grammy nominated sound designer Phil Palazzolo (Broadway's Hedwig and The Angry Inch), previews begin October 9 at IRT Theater. Opening night is slated for Thursday, October 15.

LAST CALL is set during one chaotic shift at a bustling NYC bar. Terri pours drinks for her needy and quirky customers while fending off phone calls from her about to be homeless mother. Alone on stage, without a single prop, bottle, or glass, Terri's entire world is created seamlessly through physical movement and an intricate, highly integrated soundscape.

The production team for LAST CALL also features Jason Fok (Lighting Design), Katie Meade (Stage Manager) and Bridget Balodis (Line Producer).

After having bartended for over 20 years at many of Lower Manhattan & Brooklyn’s favorite bars, Terri Grivin is thrilled to present the New York premiere of LAST CALL after critically acclaimed runs at Empire Stage and The Broward Center for the Performing Arts in South Florida. As an actor, she’s worked a ton regionally – Peter Pan (Peter – Virginia Stage Co.), Paper Moon (Ford’s Theatre), Off Broadway – Hysterical Blindness (Soho Playhouse) to name a few. Terri is also a stand up comedian having worked at most of the clubs in New York City. She was featured in the New York Times Magazine food and drink issue as one of Brooklyn’s trailblazing bartenders.
