The staging, directed by Charles Goforth, began Sept. 16 at the Shiva Theater space for a run originally slated through Oct. 12.
The gritty play features Maggie Bofill, Maggie Burke, David Deblinger (seen in LAByrinth's Where's My Money?), Scott Hudson (Our Lady of 121st Street), Salvatore Inzerillo (Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train), Wilemina Olivia Garcia and Portia (Our Lady of 121st Street)
Dutch Heart of Man follows the inner turmoil of a kind but lonesome terrazzo grinder, Dutch, who falls for a cashier at the local gas station. When the construction worker invites his "ladies' man" co-worker to double date with them, he gets more than he bargained for.
The design team includes Narelle Sissons (sets), Mimi O'Donnell (costumes), Jason Kantrowitz (lighting) and Elizabeth Rhodes (sound).
LAByrinth is known for its celebrated co-artistic directors, acclaimed actors Philip Seymour Hoffman and John Ortiz, and for fostering the career of Stephen Adly Guirgis, whose has written the troupe's most noteworthy credits, Jesus Hopped the A Train and Our Lady of 121st Street, which had a commercial run at the Union Square Theatre this year.
