The Atlantic Theater Co.'s season opener, Wolf Lullaby, will end its scheduled run Nov. 22. This disturbing Australian drama, about the murder of a small child and the involvement of a nine-year-old girl, began previews Oct. 14 for an opening Oct. 28.
Atlantic artistic director Neil Pepe staged Hilary Bell's 1996 play, which had its American premiere at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre earlier this year.
Set in Tasmania and inspired by real-life child-on-child violence stories, the drama follows two parents as they uncover facts about their daughter's role in a murder.
Atlantic regulars Larry Bryggman, Kate Blumberg, Jordan Lage and Mary McCann are featured. Pepe directed last season's Mojo for the Atlantic Theater Company. Designers are Walt Spangler (set), Linda Cho (costumes), Howard Werner (lighting), Donald DiNicola (original music and sound).
Tickets are $10-$45. For information, call (212) 645-1242 or (212) 239 6200. -- By Kenneth Jones
