In the play, four famous writers and one woman who has relationships with three of them gather in an Eastern European city during the Soviet era.

David Rasche will be seen in Paul Rudnick’s new play Regrets Only at the Manhattan Theater Club in the fall. Bruce McCarty appeared on Broadway in the Steppenwolf production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and As Is. Thomas G. Waites acted on Broadway in Richard III and American Buffalo.

Sara Surrey appeared Off-Broadway in Where We're Born and Five Flights at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater. Heather Kenzie appeared in All My Sons, Pride and Prejudice, Two Gentlemen of Verona and The Laramie Project at Rutgers Theater Company.

The production team includes Alexander Dodge, set designer; Clifton Taylor, lighting designer; Jane Greenwood, costume designer; and John Gromada, sound designer.
