The David Leveaux-directed production of the Bergman screenplay that was adapted for the stage by Jenny Worton, begins Off-Broadway performances May 13.

Opening night is June 6. The run will continue through July 3 Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop, 79 E. 4th Street, while Atlantic's main stage Linda Gross Theater undergoes renovation.

In the drama, according to ATC, "Karin (Mulligan) is the central figure in the lives of her family, not least because her own tenuous grip on reality keeps everyone in constant motion around her. On an annual vacation to a beautiful remote island, tensions flare as her husband (Harner), father (Sarandon) and brother (Rosenfield) struggle over the best way to help her. When a legacy of denial and repression boils over, threatening the future of the entire family, Karin decides that she must take command of her own destiny."
