Kinney, who staged Neil LaBute's Reasons to Be Pretty on Broadway, will helm the production that is set to run Aug. 11-22 as the final production of the season on the WTF main stage. Fifth of July will be a co-production with the Bay Street Theatre. "In Fifth of July," press notes state, "as friends and family gather to remember a lost loved one, a group of thirty-something prodigals from the rebellious post-Vietnam generation return to their rural Missouri home, finding themselves older and wiser, but devoid of dreams. Long-buried rivalries and burning secrets reignite on a late summer evening as this motley tribe struggles to adapt to the changes wrought in their lives."

Previously announced main stage productions include A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (June 30-July 11); Our Town (July 28-Aug. 8) and one additional main stage show will be announced.

The Nikos Stage will host It's Jewdy's Show! (June 23-July 4), After the Revolution and Samuel J. and K.
