Manhattan Theatre Club has announced initial casting for the U.S. premiere of Incognito, Nick Payne’s drama about memory and identity. Leading the cast will be Boardwalk Empire’s Charlie Cox and Heather Lind (Demolition). Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
The new play by the Constellations playwright will be directed by Tony winner Doug Hughes. The limited engagement is set to play Off-Broadway at New York City Center – Stage I beginning May 3. Incognito will officially open May 24.
In Incognito, “a pathologist steals the brain of Albert Einstein; a neuropsychologist embarks on her first romance with another woman; a seizure patient forgets everything but how much he loves his girlfriend.” The play, which debuted in the U.K. at Oxford’s High Tide Festival, delves deep into the uncharted realm of the mind.
The creative team for Incognito features Scott Pask (scenic design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), David Van Tieghem (original music and sound design), J. David Brimmer (fight director), Peter Pucci (movement direction) and Stephen Gabis (dialect coach.)
