Final Follies, a trio of one-act plays by A.R. Gurney to be staged at the Cherry Lane Theatre in the fall, has found its cast. The three short plays—The Love Course, The Rape of Bunny Stuntz, and Final Follies—will be presented as one evening of theatre directed by David Saint, presented by Primary Stages.
The cast will be made up of Obie Award winner Betsy Aidem (All the Way), Colin Hanlon (In Transit), Mark Junek (The Hairy Ape), Piter Marek (Cyrano de Bergerac), Greg Mullavey (Clever Little Lies), Rachel Nicks (War), and Deborah Rush (Orange is the New Black).
Final Follies will begin performances September 12 ahead of an October 2 opening night. The production, which will kick off Primary Stages' new season, is scheduled to play through October 21.
Final Follies will feature scenic design by James Youmans, costume design by David Murin, lighting design by Cory Pattak, sound design by Scott Killian, and casting by Stephanie Klapper Casting.
As previously announced, Final Follies will be followed by the Off-Broadway premiere of Theresa Rebeck's Downstairs, a family drama starring real-life siblings Tyne and Tim Daly, as well as John Procaccino. Adrienne Campbell-Holt, who helmed the world premiere at Vermont's Dorset Theatre Festival last year, will return to direct the production at Primary Stages. Performances will begin November 7 and are scheduled to run through December 22.
Both productions will be staged in the Cherry Lane Theatre (38 Commerce Street). For more information visit PrimaryStages.org or call OvationTix at (212) 352-3101.
