Renika Williams will star as Tiffany in the Cherry Lane Theatre's upcoming production of The Climb by C.A. Johnson. The new play, directed by Jenna Worsham (Agnes), follows Tiffany, a 30-year-old, directionless woman who is the sole subject of her wife’s photography career.
Climb will be presented April 3–13 as part of Cherry Lane's Obie-winning Mentor Project. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Martyna Majok is attached as a mentor to the production.
In Climb, Tiffany absconds on a month-long hiking trip, leaving both her and her wife (played by Erin Anderson) questioning everything from the future of their marriage to the true meaning of a moment captured in time.
Rounding out the cast are Sharlene Cruz and Alex Hurt.
The production will feature set design by Lawrence E. Moten III, costume design by Andy Jean, lighting design by Stacey Derosier, sound design by Z Worthington, casting by Eisenberg/Beans Casting, general management by Mott/Fischer Productions, and production management by Iron Bloom Creative Production. Seth Betzler is the production stage manager.
Tickets for the Mentor Project are $25 and are available here or by calling (866) 811-4111.
