Woody ("Cheers," "Natural Born Killers") Harrelson and Kyle ("Blue Velvet," "Twin Peaks") MacLachlan are starring in a new play, On An Average Day by American playwright John Kolvenbach, at the Comedy Theatre.
Set in rural upstate New York the play, directed by John Crowley, tells how Jack (MacLachlan) unexpectedly returns home after a 15-year absence to find his abandoned younger brother, Robert (Harrelson) living in a private world that is far from ordinary.
Robert is on trial for a bizarre traffic incident (a case of art imitating life, given that Harrelson has been involved, offstage, in a high-profile altercation with a London taxi driver), is hoarding a shower full of newspaper clippings and has something unsavory living in the fridge. And what has Jack been hiding from Robert all these years?
On An Average Day begins previews on July 25 and opens on Aug. 7.
