Additional casting will be announced for the production, to play May 8-June 2 on the Claire Tow Stage in the C. Newton Schenck III Theatre in New Haven, CT.
Here's how Long Wharf bills the play, which won the 2012 Tony Award as Best Play: "In 1959, we meet a nervous group of neighbors trying to talk their friends out of selling their home to a black family. Sixty years later, hilarious sparks fly as a white family attempts to move into the now predominantly African-American neighborhood. Racism rears its head through an ostensibly polite veneer. This provocative and funny Pulitzer Prize-winning play delves into America's complicated relationship with race with sharp humor and deep perception."
Ripley will play a mother and wife trying to keep her family's emotional balance in check in Act One. She's a digressive real estate agent in Act Two.
