The cast will also feature Nicole Lowrance, Talene Monahon and Lucas Near-Verbrugghe.

In Permission, Bartha and Reaser will play Eric and Cyndy, respectively, a couple who have decided to follow the example of their friends and make the real-life practice of Christian Domestic Discipline the foundation of their marriage. "But restructuring their lives and their union according to role play and a new moral code upends everything they knew--and took for granted--about one another, their friends, and more importantly, who really holds the power," state press notes.
