A One-Night-Stand Leads to a Cross-Country Journey in the play "Phoenix," starring Julia Stiles

James Wirt and Julia Stiles in "Phoenix"

Julia Stiles and James Wirt discuss their roles in Scott Organ’s play “Phoenix.” They play Sue and Bruce, who meet after an uncharacteristic one-night-stand. Sue never wants to see him again, but Bruce feels compelled to join her in Phoenix. Both are forced to consider a whole new world of possibility, though not one free of difficulty and loss. “Phoenix” is playing at the Cherry Lane Theater through August 23.
