Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Other Desert Cities, Take Me Out) helms the thriller, which will officially open March 28 for a run through April 24.

Metcalf (November, A Lie of the Mind) is reunited with her Brighton Beach Memoirs co-star Dennis Boutsikaris in a cast that also features Aya Cash (Offices) and John Schiappa (Women on the Verge, Assassins).

Here's how MCC bills the premiere: "Just as Juliana Smithton’s (Metcalf) research leads to a potential breakthrough in Alzheimer treatment drugs, her life takes a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort, she glimpses an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amidst the crowd of business suits. One step at a time, a mystery unravels as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod."

The Other Place has scenic design by Eugene Lee, costume design by Dane Laffrey, lighting design by Justin Townsend, projection design by William Cusick and sound design by Fitz Patton.

White's plays include Sunlight, Six Years, Iris Fields, Satellites of the Sun and The Escape Velocity of Savages.

For tickets, phone (212) 279-4200 or visit TicketCentral. The Lucille Lortel Theatre is located at 121 Christopher Street.
