Lou Jacob stages The Glass Cage, which began previews Sept. 4 and will officially open Sept. 21. Originally scheduled to run through Oct. 26, the production has now extended for an additional week of performances through Nov. 2.
Aaron Krohn (The Farnsworth Invention, Coast of Utopia) leads a cast that includes Gerry Bamman, Chet Carlin, Chad Hoeppner, Robin Moseley, Saxon Palmer, Jeanine Serralles, Sandra Struthers-Clerc, Fiana Toibin (Long Day's Journey Into Night) and Jack Wetherall (The Elephant Man).
In The Glass Cage, press notes state, "the McBanes are a pious, Bible-thumping lot, dominated by the bullying David and his bachelor brother, Malcolm. Into their midst comes a strange trio of siblings, the fruits of a marriage between a third, wild McBane brother and a Native American woman. As the three disrupt the puritanical household with their boozing and sexual seduction, we are kept in the dark as to their ultimate purpose. Finally, Priestley makes it clear that they are hell-bent on revenge for the way their late dad was cheated of his rightful inheritance."
The design team comprises Roger Hanna (set design), Camille Assaf (costume design), Marcus Doshi (lighting design) and Lindsay Jones (sound design).
