Drama Desk nominee Jonathan Silverstein (The Temperamentals, The Dining Room) will direct the production, which begins its limited Off-Broadway engagement at Theatre Row Sept. 13 with an official opening night Sept. 27. Performances will continue through Oct. 22.

The cast will feature Keith Nobbs (Lombardi, The Lion in Winter), Kellie Overbey (The Coast of Utopia, Present Laughter, Buried Child) and Kevin Kilner (Dinner with Friends, The Glass Menagerie).

"I have a long history with Lanford Wilson's work,” said Keen Company artistic director Carl Forsman in a statement. “The first Broadway play I ever went to see was Fifth Of July. My last date with my high school sweetheart was Burn This on Broadway. I have always loved Lanford's writing, and I have long wanted to produce one of his plays. I believe his compassion is unrivaled amongst American playwrights, and I believe his work has a natural home at Keen Company. We're thrilled to be presenting Lemon Sky, his most personal play, and are grateful to his estate for permission to produce this important work.”

In Lemon Sky, press note states, "Wilson recounts a personal story in autobiographical detail: his journey, at age 17, to California to live with his estranged father's second family."

Show times will be Tuesday at 7 PM, Wednesday-Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2 PM and 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.
