Directed by Sue Glausen, the limited engagement will continue through Feb. 11.

The cast of Holy Child features John Blaycock ("All My Children"), Dono Cunningham ("Law and Order"), Jerry Ferris, Paul Montagna and Annie Paul ("Boardwalk Empire").

Here's how White Fence bills the production: "Over a bottle of wine that 'don't get empty,' the four Di Camillo brothers reunite at their old neighborhood restaurant. The youngest, Bernie, an upwardly mobile lawyer and dedicated family man who has tried for years to avoid his problematic siblings must again confront the shame he feels when he is with them. His older brother Vic is an abusive and overweight businessman that never stops complaining about his wife. His middle brother Patsy is a high school gym teacher that has become romantically involved with a 15-year-old student at the expense of his marriage and his job. But most shocking to Bernie is his brother Tommy, an alcohol- addicted priest who is about to be banished from his calling and put into a church institution for the wayward called 'Holy Child.' As the evening continues and the brothers re-visit the painful memories that have both divided and bonded them, each in his own way realizes that love is no protection from giving or receiving mortal wounds and even death provides no escape."

Playwright Lauinger won Backstage West's Best Writing of the Year Award for his play Dirty Work, which was produced at the Alliance Theatre in L.A. His other plays include Mother's Day and Rich on Skins, among others.

Roy Arias Studios Theatre is located at 300 W. 43rd Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues. For more information and tickets, call (212) 352-0255.
