Virginia Woolf’s only play, Freshwater, will be produced for the first time in the U.S. early next year.

The production, a collaborative effort by the Women’s Project and the SITI Company, will run Jan. 15 to Feb. 15 at the Julia Miles Theater, 424 West 55th St., in New York, just west of 9th Avenue.

Show times are Tuesdays at 7 p.m., Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 3 and 7 p.m., with no matinee Sunday, Jan. 25. Presumably, the cast and crew will spend their extra time that afternoon celebrating Woolf’s birthday.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Oct. 1. The price is $42. But Women’s Project members can purchase tickets now. Member prices range from $15 to $25. Call 212-765-2105 or e-mail membership@womensproject.org for tickets or membership information.
