The drama about "the consequences of one couple's seemingly innocuous business trip to Cambodia" will feature Hinkle ("Two and a Half Men") and Mather Zickel ("Rachel Getting Married") as the couple. Previews begin May 24 in anticipation of a June 1 opening at Geffen's Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater.

Pam MacKinnon directs. Watanabe plays Sopoan, "the couple's guide through the unfamiliar territory." Chau ("Lost") and Gelman play the roles "of a high-powered Cambodian business man and his wife," respectively.

According to Geffen, "As business deals unravel and personal negotiations brim with political consequences, the couple must decide if the salvation of one life is worth sacrificing the justice of many."

Extraordinary Chambers was workshopped as part of South Coast Repertory Pacific Playwrights Festival in 2009; there was a subsequent reading as part of the Ojai Playwrights Conference in August of that year.

Performances play to July 3. The production team includes set designer Myung Hee Cho, costume designer Alex Jaeger, lighting designer Lap Chi Chu, sound designer Vincent Olivieri, production stage manager Young Ji.
