Following a fall run at Los Angeles' Elephant Space Theatre, Wayne Kasserman will again stage the production that will begin previews Feb. 13 at the Cherry Lane Theatre. An official opening has been set for Feb. 17. Roday ("Psych") and Weston ("House") lead a cast that also features original Los Angeles cast members Amanda Detmer and Stefanie E. Frame.

Extinction, according to press notes is "about what transpires between two college buddies whose annual outing of male-bonding and debauchery veers precipitously off course when unmet expectations spiral into a volatile showdown."

The production has scenic design by Steven C. Kemp, lighting design by Mike Durst and costume design by Gali Noy.

McKinley's plays include Welcome Home Rock Rogers, The Kitchen Sink Play, Funny, Floodplains, The Grave and Hero's Grave.

The Off-Broadway engagement is presented by Red Dog Squadron, the Cherry Lane Theatre and Dule Hill. Performances are scheduled through March 14.

For tickets, priced $45, phone (212) 239-6200 or visit Telecharge.com. The Cherry Lane Theatre is located at 38 Commerce Street in Manhattan.
