Artistic director Neil Pepe will direct the production, to run Sept. 13-Oct. 30 at Classic Stage Company, a borrowed venue (on East 13th Street) while ATC's mainstage is being expanded.

Opening is Oct. 3. "In this surreal new play, something is not right in the world," according to Atlantic notes. "The sky is a strange color, and there are geese bombarding the Connecticut home of Sandra and Bertram Cabot. Dreams of Flying Dreams of Falling lifts the veil on the lives of two wealthy American families, and shows us how even the most polished among us can behave like animals."

The production team includes scenic designers Takeshi Kata and Andrew Boyce, costume designer Theresa Squire and lighting designer Tyler Micoleau, with original music and sound design by David Van Tieghem.

Obie Award winner Adam Rapp (Red Light Winter) makes his Atlantic debut with the new play. His plays include Nocturne, Faster, Blackbird, Essential Self-Defense and American Sligo.
