Playwright Terence Patrick Hughes, who is the playwright in residence at 13th Street Rep, will direct his work that officially opens May 8 for a five-week engagement through June 7.
The cast of Finding the Rooster features Jonathan Schlieman, Kathryn Browne, Dave Benger, Kevin Hauver and Reggie Oldham.
Finding the Rooster is the second installment in Hughes' ten-play cycle The Trials of Oscar the Great. Set in New England in 1965, Rooster, according to press notes, "follows the wealthy and volatile Fine family whose profits and losses both emanate from war. On this evening, the father of the family, a wealthy weapons manufacturer and self-made man, has summoned some lawyers to his elegant home to draw up divorce papers in reaction to his wife's alleged affair."
Complete creative duties will be announced shortly.
