The cast comprises Beth Grant ("Little Miss Sunshine," "Pushing Daisies"), Tony nominee Mary Testa (Xanadu, 42nd Street, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), TJ Linnard ("Guiding Light"), Desiree Rodriguez, Peter Bradbury, Julie Jesneck and Jodie Lynne McClintock.

"Don and Betty have been married for 22 years, almost exactly as long as they have had their son, Jeremy," according to press notes. "But there is whispering behind closed doors, and the once invisible imperfections begin to poison the air. Right and wrong are swept up in a whirlwind of lies, hope and haunting memories. Perfume of whiskey sweetens the smell of prayer as the supporting cast reaches for their own versions of salvation. Will the faithful be saved? Or have they run out of time? The plan has already been set into motion. Judgment is coming…"

The production also features set design by Eli Kaplan-Wildmann, costumes by Asa Benally, lighting design by Scott Davis and sound design by Walter Trarbach.

Producers are Maddy Bassi, Circa 1440 Inc. and Idle Mind Ltd.

Show times are Tuesdays at 7 PM, Wednesdays-Fridays at 8 PM, Saturdays at 2 PM and 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM and 7 PM.
