Marking a major new milestone in the extraordinary trajectory of the project, Performing Lines is thrilled to announce that The Second Woman by Nat Randall and Anna Breckon will be performed by actor, writer and producer Alia Shawkat when it makes its US debut at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in October.
Best known for roles in acclaimed screen productions including Search Party, Duck Butter, Animals, Arrested Development, Broad City, and Transparent, Shawkat has developed a devoted following of fans and critics the world over through her daring and diverse project choices and a distinctive, wry and honest performance style.

Shawkat is looking forward to the challenge of performing for 24 hours straight in Randall and Breckon’s epic durational work The Second Woman. She will perform the role against 100 male volunteers of all ages and backgrounds drawn from across New York City.
