The cast includes Charlotte Booker, Ari Butler, Lily Corvo, Liam Craig, Deirdre O'Connell, Danielle Skraastad, Rick Stear and Catherine Wolf. Press notes describe the play as such: "A woman is found wandering in Chicago, her feet blistered and bloody. Doctors at the hospital immediately recognize this as a symptom of the 'fugue' state of amnesia, where the patient is literally running away from an intolerable memory. A young psychiatrist assigned to work with her is running from his own demons as well — a mistake he made with a patient which had a devastating effect on his own life."
Fugue began previews March 13 and runs through April 22 at the Cherry Lane Theatre.
