In addition to Day (Proof, Peter and Jerry) and Garrison (A Day In Hollywood…), newly added cast members include James McMenamin (Our Town Off-Broadway), Cindy Cheung ("Lady in the Water"), Ed Jewett, McKenna Kerrigan, Olivia Scott and Pete Simpson.

As previously announced, Ken Rus Schmoll will direct the play about small-town life that will also feature Georgia Engel, Michael Park, Linus Roache and Heather Burns. An official opening has been set for Nov. 3.

The Vineyard bills the play as "a deeply moving and funny new play exploring the universe of a small American town. As a friendship develops between longtime resident John Dodge (Roache) and new arrival Mary Swanson (Burns), the lives of the inhabitants of Middletown intersect in strange and poignant ways in a journey that takes them from the local library to outer space and points between."

Middletown will have set and costume design by David Zinn and lighting design by Tyler Micoleau.

Eno's play Thom Pain (based on nothing) was a 2004 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. His other plays include The Flu Season, Tragedy: a tragedy and Oh, The Humanity and other exclamations.
