Sheryl Kaller (Dangerous Beauty) directs the world premiere of the work, which is penned by Naked Angels artistic director Nauffts. The work was previously announced as part of the Naked Angels season under the title The Gospel According To Adam.
Opening night will be June 3. Performances are scheduled through June 21 at Playwrights Horizons Peter Jay Sharp Theatre.
The cast will feature Patrick Breen (Fuddy Meers, Brighton Beach Memoirs), Maddie Corman (Isn't It Romantic, "Some Kind of Wonderful"), Sean Dugan (Corpus Christi, Rough Crossing), Patrick Heusinger ("Gossip Girl," Spamalot), Connie Ray (The Heidi Chronicles) and Cotter Smith (An American Daughter).
Nauftts' work asks, "What happens when a Christian gives an Atheist the Heimlich?" The work, according to press notes, "chronicles the five-year relationship between Adam and Luke as they wrestle with their respective demons. Timely and compelling, the play places the Prop 8 controversy in a human context by exploring what it means to 'believe' in this day and age, and what it might cost us not to."
Designing the production are Wilson Chin (scenic design), Jessica Wegener (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design) and Bart Fasbender (sound design).
