Casting Complete for Patricia Wettig's F2M at New York Stage and Film

News   Casting Complete for Patricia Wettig's F2M at New York Stage and Film Harriett D. Foy and Talia Balsam have joined the cast of F2M, a new play by "thirtysomething" and "Brothers & Sisters" actress Patricia Wettig, which will be presented as part of the New York Stage and Film and Vassar College's 2011 Powerhouse Theater season.

Maria Mileaf (The Argument, Underneath the Lintel) will direct the June 29-July 10 run of the play that was first presented as part of NYSF's 2010 Readings Festival.

Foy (Once On This Island, Mamma Mia!, The American Plan) and Balsam ("Mad Men") join a cast including the previously announced Keira Keeley, Ken Olin, Deirdre O'Connell and Phoebe Strole.

According to NYSF, "It's parents weekend freshman year, but Parker's very famous parents aren't coming — which, trust him, is just as well. Confrontations both painfully funny and deeply poignant are sparked when Ali and Clarence show up uninvited, as Parker's hard-won new identity is put to the test, and the family must grapple with the difficult choices of the child they love."
