Jeremy Dobrish will direct the production, which will begin previews Oct. 10 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre with an official opening Oct. 30. The limited engagement of Jim Knable's romantic comedy will run through Nov. 17. Sciorra, who will play Barbara, will be joined onstage by Michael Aronov as El Conquistador, Veanne Cox as Diversion, Erik Jensen as John and Lisa Kron as Ancient.

"Reeling from an acrimonious divorce," press notes read, "Barbara finds solace in her overactive imagination. After conjuring her dream lover — a sexy Conquistador decked out in a full suit of armor — the two embark on a fantastical journey which prompts her to give in to her darkest desires."

The creative team will also include Beowulf Boritt (scenic design), Jenny Mannis (costume design), Michael Gottlieb (lighting design), Jill BC DuBoff (sound design) and Rick Sordelet (fight direction).

Spain was previously performed at the 2006 Summer Play Festival and at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre, among other venues. Knable's other plays include Saltimbanques, True and Solid Ground and The Travesty of Hamlet. Annabella Sciorra has appeared on the New York stage in Roar, Everything's Turning Into Beautiful, Those The River Keeps and Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues. The actress has appeared in such films as "Jungle Fever," "Cadillac Man," "The Night We Never Met," "Romeo is Bleeding," "Mr. Wonderful," "What Dreams May Come" and "Chasing Liberty."

Show times are Tuesday and Wednesday at 7 PM, Thursday and Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2 and 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.
