The sexy Edwardians of the play by Karoline Leach will be Maxwell Caulfield and Tony Award nominee Amelia Campbell. Opening is April 6 following previews from March 21.
Produced by Morton Wolkowitz and Barbara Freitag, Tryst — Part romance, part psychological thriller — will be directed by Joe Brancato.
"Tryst tells the story of how George Love, a handsome conman who woos loved-starved women, meets Adelaide Pinchon, a desperate woman, who dreams beyond her mundane world at the local millinery store," the producers announced. "Mr. Love has a history of illicit affairs, but after meeting the fantasizing shop-girl, there is a twist of fate."
The play contains nudity and adult themes and is not recommended for children.
