The new work, also directed by Beckett, is third in her series of plays and will feature stage and screen actress Alysia Reiner. Additional casting will soon be announced.

A Charity Case, according to press notes, "examines the adoption triangle between a birth mother, the relinquishing mother and a 17-year-old daughter. Our most sacred of relationships is the one we have with our mothers and the journey is blessed, cursed, mysterious and tender. When a child is adopted, a whole layer of complexity is added to that relationship. In A Charity Case, Beckett explores this parallel world."

Other members of the creative team include scenic designer David L. Arsenault, lighting designer Travis McHale and costume designer Theresa Squire. A Charity Case is produced by Peter Walters for Pascal Productions.

Reiner has been seen Off-Broadway in the New York premiere of Pentecost and has also appeared on stage in An Oak Tree at the Barrow Street Theatre. She is best known for her film work, which includes "Sideways" and television appearances on "The Sopranos," "Law & Order," "30 Rock" and "White Collar."

The Clurman Theatre is located at 410 West 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues. For tickets, call Telecharge at (212) 239-6200 or visit www.Telecharge.com.
