Lee Sankowich (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) directs the engagement, which began previews Oct. 12 and will continue through Dec. 4.

"In Moses Supposes," according to the creators, "Cookie and Marvin Green's adult children, Cece and Raymond, have returned to their Southern Jewish home to throw their parents a 35th wedding anniversary party. But everyone has chosen this same weekend to reveal their own surprises, and the ensuing mishegas turns the celebration upside down. There are non-stop laughs as the Green family discovers that after 35 years, maybe they don't know each other quite as well as they thought they did. Just as 'Moses Supposes his toeses are roses'... the entire Green family supposes erroneously."

The production has set design by Adam Hunter, lighting design by Matt Richter, costume design by Joanna Leskow and sound design by Norman Kern.
