Pam MacKinnon directs a cast that also features Isabel Keating (The Boy From Oz, Hairspray, Enchanted April), Christina Kirk (Well, God's Ear, Suitcase) and Raul Castillo (School of the Americas). According to Primary Stages, the work concerns "trust fund darling Emma [who] imagines what her life would have been like had she come from a less privileged background. Trouble is, she chronicles her alternate life in a new tell-all 'memoir' that was sold for a hefty advance. When Emma is exposed, will her sister, Tess (Kirk), stand by her? Or will Emma's deceit destroy their already fractured relationship? This dark comedy brings up questions of legacy, loyalty and what it means to belong."
The play runs at the midtown venue through Sept. 5:
