Neil Blackadder has translated Swiss playwright Bärfuss' work, which is set to run Nov. 6-22 at the Wild Project under the direction of Kristjan Thor. Opening night is Nov. 11. Grace Gummer — who comes from the show-business family troupe that includes Mamie Gummer and Meryl Streep — will appear in a company that also features Laura Heidinger, Kathryn Kates ("Seinfeld"), Max Lodge, Charlie Mitchell, Jim Noonan and Peter O'Connor (Kidstuff).

Gummer, according to press notes, will portray "Dora, who, after ten years on tranquillizers, emerges with an insatiable sexual appetite that pits her against a secret and deviant adult world. Not your normal coming of age story. Not your everyday sexual awakening."

Designing The Sexual Neuroses of Our Parents are Moza Saracho (set and co-design for costumes), Kylie Ward (costumes), Joel Bravo (original music and sound design) and Sabrina Peric (lighting design).

Tickets, priced $18, are available by phoning (212) 352-3101 or by visiting ElectricPear.

The Wild Project is located at 195 East Third Street in Manhattan.
