The Cell will present the world premiere of Marianne Driscoll's canine comedy, The Biscuit Club, inspired by the cult classic film "The Breakfast Club."

Directed by Kira Simring, performances will begin April 4 at the Cell, with opening night slated for April 9.

The Biscuit Club will star Jack O'Connell ("Nurse Jackie"), Stephane Duret (The Fortress of Solitude), Bob Jaffe (The Real McGonagall), John McLaughlin (Hard Times: An American Musical), Paul Nugent (The Field) and Judy Rosenblatt (Woman Before A Glass).

The show will give audiences a sneak peek behind-the-bars at Bradley's Bed & Biscuit, a boarding house for dogs. "When an aging Bulldog, a sassy Beagle, a glamorous Shih Tzu, a grumpy Pit Bull, a haughty champion Airedale Terrier and a wide-eyed Labrador pup are locked together for the night," says press notes, "a doggone good time is in store for all."

The production team includes Gertjan Houben (set and lighting), Zoe Sienna Allen (costumes), Charles Mueller (sound design), Brian Reager (assistant director) and Mackenzie Meeks (stage manager).

The Cell is located at 338 W. 23rd St., New York. Tickets are available by calling (800) 838-3006 or online at www.thecelltheatre.org.
