Directed by Will Pomerantz, the cast features Tony winner Michele Pawk, Roxanna Hope, Arian Moayed and Epic co-founder James Wallert. Mahida's Extra Key to Heaven, according to press notes, "is a poetic and haunting love story about crossing human and political borders in this time of unyielding violence. It begins when a young American painter visiting his mother on an island in the Northwest encounters a frightened Iranian college student abandoned by her brother and waiting alone for a ferry that will never come. It ends in a way that is horrific, beautiful, and unforgettable."
The design team comprises Mimi Lien (scenic design), Theresa Squire (costume design), Justin Townsend (lighting design) and Katie Down (sound design). The production stage manager is Erin Koster.
All performances will be followed by a post-show discussion.
