Performances begin Oct. 15 with an opening of Oct. 30 at Labyrinth's new home, the Bank Street Theater (155 Bank Street), in Manhattan's West Village. The run plays to Nov. 13.

Also appearing with Academy, Emmy and Tony Award winner Burstyn (Hollywood's "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore," Broadway's Same Time, Next Year), Casella ("The Sopranos," "Boardwalk Empire"), Kandel (The Who's Tommy) and Tony winner Glover (Love! Valour! Compassion!) are Kelley Curran (Angels in America, Henry V), David Deblinger (The Wood, Our Lady of 121st Street), Charles Goforth (underneathmybed, Henry V), Kelley Rae O'Donnell (Heal Me Television, The 24 Hour Plays), Melissa Ross (Our Lady of 121st Street, A Winter Party) and Sidney Williams (Little Flower of East Orange, Identical Same Temptation).

Director Pam MacKinnon's production team includes scenic designer David Gallo, costume designer Emily Rebholz, lighting designer Dans Sheehan and sound designer Brendan Connelly.

The Atmosphere of Memory, according to the not-for-profit Off-Broadway company known recently for The Motherf***er With the Hat, "tells the story of playwright Jon Stone, who has recently found the courage to write his masterpiece: a play about his upbringing. But when his actual mother is cast to play his mother on stage and his estranged father remembers the family history differently, Jon is forced to rewrite, not only his play, but his past as well. With twists hilarious and heartbreaking, playwright Katz (Philip Roth in Khartoum, Freak) turns Williams and O'Neill on their heads by imagining a world where the boundaries between life and art, fact and fiction, are as blurry as The Atmosphere of Memory itself."

Tickets are now available at labtheater.org. Tickets for this production start at just $25. For additional information, or to order a LABPASS Membership, visit the website at www.labtheater.org.
