Peter DuBois directs the play that began previews June 28 and will run through Aug. 14. DuBois previously directed Braff in Paul Weitz's critically praised comedy Trust at 2ST last summer.
According to 2ST, "It's the dead of winter and the summer vacation getaway of Long Beach Island, New Jersey is desolate and blanketed in snow. Charlie is 35, heartbroken and just wants some time away from the rest of the world. The island ghost town seems to be the perfect escape until his solitude is interrupted by a motley parade of misfits who show up and change his plans. A hired beauty, the townie fireman, and an eccentric British real estate agent desperately trying to stay in the country suddenly find themselves tangled together in a beach house where the mood is anything but sunny."

Bartha made his Broadway debut last season in the revival of Lend Me a Tenor. His film roles include "The Hangover," "The Rebound" and "National Treasure." Barnes was last seen in the 2ST production of Becky Shaw and Broadway's The Lieutenant of Inishmore. Camp performed in the 2ST production of The Scene and the Broadway revival of Equus; while Ritter was seen in 2ST's All This Intimacy and the films "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and "She's Out of My League."
Perhaps best known for his role on "Scrubs," Braff is also the author-director of the 2004 film "Garden State," in which he also starred. Second Stage also presented Trust last summer, which featured Braff alongside Bobby Cannavale, Sutton Foster and Ari Graynor. DuBois is the artistic director of the Huntington Theatre Company. For 2ST, he also staged Gina Gionfriddo’s Becky Shaw. He has also directed Bob Glaudini’s Jack Goes Boating with Philip Seymour Hoffman, A View from 151st Street, Adrienne Kennedy’s Mom, How Did You Meet the Beatles and Richard III with Peter Dinklage.
