Theater Breaking Through Barriers, the Off-Broadway company integrating able-bodied actors with artists with disabilities, will present the first Off-Broadway revival of A.R. Gurney's 1992 play The Fourth Wall. Directed by Christopher Burris, previews will begin May 26 at the Jeffrey and Paula Gural Theatre at The A.R.T./New York Theatres.

Casting and a production team will be announced shortly. The limited engagement is scheduled through June 23.

In The Fourth Wall, a woman, to her husband's chagrin, has redecorated their living room to resemble a stage set. Everything faces one wall, and everyone who enters the room begins to behave as if they were actors in a play.

The play received its New York premiere in 2002.

Theater Breaking Through Barriers previously staged Samuel D. Hunter's The Healing and a revival of Charles Ludlam's The Artificial Jungle.
