Paul Slade Smith
Actor & Playwright
• You can currently see Paul in the 3rd season premiere of HBO's The Other Two, and on the penultimate episode (Season 10, Episode 20) of The Blacklist on NBC and Peacock.
• Paul's new play, The Angel Next Door, will receive its world premiere this fall at North Coast Repertory in California, in a production helmed by Artistic Director David Ellenstein.
The play is Paul's brand-new adaptation of Ferenc Molnar's classic Hungarian farce, Play at the Castle - now set in a Newport mansion in 1948 and populated with playwrights, actors, a young, starstruck author, and a housekeeper who would like them all to leave. A comedy that's in love with theater, about people in love with theater who - in pursuit of a surefire Broadway hit - might have to give reality a rewrite to arrive at a happy ending.
The North Coast Rep production runs September 6 through October 1, and then transfers to Laguna Playhouse, where performances run October 18 through November 5.
