Rapp also directs the world-premiere production that began previews Nov. 11 and will run through Dec. 6. The cast features Amoralists regulars William Apps, James Kautz, Nick Lawson, Sarah Lemp, Mandy Nicole Moore and Matthew Pilieci.

Here's how the Amoralists describe the play: "On the night of a terrible storm, a single mother and her younger son await the arrival of the older son, who has broken out of prison. Two others arrive before him: a stranger with a wounded leg and a girl with a suitcase. Nothing will ever be the same."

In recent seasons the Amoralists have presented The Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side, Happy In The Poorhouse, Amerissiah, The Hey You Monster and Chasing the Fantastic.

Rapp's plays include The Metal Children, Nocturne, Faster, Animals & Plants, Finer Noble Gases, Stone Cold Dead Serious, Blackbird, Gompers, Essential Self-Defense and Red Light Winter.
