Goner, the satiric comedy by Brian Parks, will get a new Gotham mounting Jan. 5-28, under the direction of the man who first staged it, John Clancy.

The show will star two of the actors who appeared in the 1999 premiere, David Calvitto and Leslie Farrell, as well as Bill Coelius, Patrick Federic, Jody Lambert, Matt Oberg and Jona Tuck.

The show is produced by Word Monger, a new nonprofit theatre company "dedicated to staging new American plays, for production both here and abroad."

Among Goner's features are a wounded President, an absent-minded chief surgeon and a couple of excitable FBI conspiracy theorists. According to a spokesman, the script has been much revised since its debut .

Goner will play at the Kraine Theatre at 85 East 4th Street . Tickets are $15. To purchase tickets call (212) 868-4444 or visit www.SmartTix.com.
