Horse TRADE presents Gift Exchange ; Do Not Disturb Theatre's return to The Red Room after winning the Audience Choice Award for Revival at the debut FRIGID New York Festival.


Mike knows his best friend Tucker is hard to shop for, but he's shocked when Tucker's wish list has only one thing on it—Mike's wife!   Tucker wants a good, old-fashioned wife swap and he's not the least bit concerned when Mike's not so sure about the idea, because, hey, he's got a whole year to agree.  Gift Exchange is a touching and arousing new comedy about sex, love and marriage by up and coming playwright Greg Turner .

Do Not Disturb believes that Theatre is an animal unique from all other art forms that thrives on people's passion for live storytelling. DND was formed in 2005 by Greg Turner and Sara Sahin in order to produce new American theatre by living playwrights who are instrumental in the mounting of their work. Past productions include: Revival (FRIGID New York , Audience Choice Award – Local Favorite), Tea , and The Eastern Standard Time Series, (both at Manhattan Theatre Source).


Greg Turner (playwright) is a graduate of New York University 's Department of Dramatic Writing (BFA, '03) and Musical Theatre Writing Program (MFA, '05).   Past productions include All Fall Down (NYU Festival of New Works, 2002), an evening of his original one-acts entitled The Eastern Standard Time Series (Manhattan Theatre Source, 2003), Tea (Manhattan Theatre Source, 2006), and Revival (FRIGID New York Festival, 2007).   The latter received an Audience Award for Favorite Local Show at the Red Room Theatre.  His one-act musical, Preservation , with composer Lee Huff, was read at NYU in 2004.   His original musical, The Gifted , also with Huff, was read at NYU in 2005.
