The cast features Ariel Woodiwiss, Anthony Comis and Tony Chiroldes, who each make their City Theatre debuts, as well as Pittsburgh actors Kimberly Parker Green and Robin Abramson.

Opening night is set for March 6 for a run through March 22.

Here's how the work is billed: "Blue-collar Buffalo, New York meets beachfront splendor when Devon visits the sprawling Martha's Vineyard estate where her sister Simone is employed as a personal assistant. Simone's new gig is complete with a six-figure salary, a preppy boyfriend with a yacht, and a handsome clothing allowance — all courtesy of trophy wife Michaela, her boss. But when Michaela crashes the sisters' weekend, Devon learns the price for the pampered life."

In addition to Elemeno Pea, playwright Metzler is the author of Close Up Space (Manhattan Theatre Club, Susan Smith Blackburn finalist), Carve (Tristan Bates Theatre-London), Training Wisteria (Cherry Lane Mentor Project, The Kennedy Center KCACTF) and her newest play, The May Queen (Chautauqua Theatre Company).

The creative team includes Tony Ferrieri (scenic design), Robert C.T. Steele (costume design), Andrew David Ostrowski (lighting design) and Ryan McMasters (sound design).

City Theatre is located at 1300 Bingham Street in Pittsburgh. For more information and tickets, call (412) 431-2489 or visit CityTheatreCompany.org.
