F**king Vigwan (Or Swag), a new play by Pulitzer Prize finalist Kristoffer Diaz, will receive a five-performance public workshop at the Cherry Lane Studio Theatre beginning Nov. 29.

Presented as part of the Barefoot Theatre Company and East 3rd Productions' Stripped Festival, F**king Vigwan will be staged in repertory with Israel Horovitz's Gloucester Blue.

Diaz is the author of The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity, which was presented Off-Broadway in 2010. F**king Vigwan was first presented as part of the bareNaked Reading Series in 2010.

Francisco Solorzano will direct the workshop that will include cast members Charles Everett, Samantha Fontana, Christopher Whalen, Jennie West, Robert Spence, Eric Vigdorov, Molly Millard, Michael Pierre Louis, Lorraine Rodriguez-Reyed, Andrew MacLarty, Gillian Rougier, Arthur Kriklivy and Mark von Sternberg.

Here's how the play is billed: "Vigwan is an awful man with impeccable swag. Greg, who has no swag, has had enough. But when one man vanquishes another with great swag, does the second man's swag become the first's own swag? And which one of those dead bodies is really a zombie?"
