The world premiere of Greg Keller's Dutch Masters, starring Amari Cheatom and Christian Coulson, begins performances July 19 at the Berkshire Theatre Festival.

Brian Roff directs the two-hander that will officially open July 23 for a run through Aug. 6 on the Unicorn Stage.

According to BTF, "In the summer of 1992, two young adult men find themselves on the same subway car headed uptown. One white, one black, the two will discover over the course of one afternoon exactly what it is that unites and divides them. A dramatic comedy that continually surprises and defies expectation, Dutch Masters is a shocking examination of race relations in our time."

Cheatom's stage credits include Zooman and the Sign, The Lower Ninth and When January Feels Like Summer. Coulson has appeared in the West End in Journey's End and Ghosts. He is well known for his role as Tom Riddle in "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets."

The design team for Dutch Masters includes Jason Simms (scenic design), Lauria Churba Kohn (costume design), Japhy Weideman (lighting design) and Bray Poor (sound design).
