Sam Gold (Circle Mirror Transformation) will direct a cast that has yet to be named. Opening night is May 27 at Atlantic Stage 2 on 330 W. 16th Street. Belber was represented on Broadway with the world premiere of his play Match starring Frank Langella. His Off-Broadway play, Tape, has been produced in New York, Australia, Germany, Canada, Greece and Japan and was made into a feature film starring Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman.

Here's how Atlantic bills Dusk Rings a Bell: "Molly and Ray unexpectedly meet 25 years after a one-afternoon adolescent fling. She has a successful media career; he owns a small landscaping business. Both begin to romanticize their chance reunion, but a renewed connection is disrupted when Ray reveals the sordid details of a crime that left him incarcerated for ten years. Their encounter reveals two vastly different paths taken and two lonely souls attempting to reclaim a moment of possibility, when they were young and perhaps at their very best."

Belber's other plays include McReele (Roundabout); A Small, Melodramatic Story (Labyrinth); Geometry of Fire (Rattlestick); Fault Lines (Cherry Lane); One Million Butterflies (Primary Stages) and Carol Mulroney (Huntington Theater Company). He was an associate writer on The Laramie Project (Drama Desk and Lortel nominations), and co-writer on the more recent Laramie Project Epilogue. He also penned and directed the feature film "Management" starring Jennifer Aniston and Steve Zahn.

Dusk Rings a Bell will play Tuesday-Saturday at 7:30 PM and Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 PM.

All tickets are $45 and will be available beginning April 12 by calling Ticket Central at (212) 279-4200 ( or in person at the Stage 2 box office located at 330 West 16th Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues).
