Joe Brancato stages the production from the InProximity Theatre Company that will officially open Jan. 18 for a run through Feb. 5. The Fall to Earth premiered at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in 2004, with Tony-winning August: Osage County cast member Rondi Reed among the cast.

Campbell (Our Country's Good) is joined by Obie Award winner Deborah Hedwall (Sight Unseen) and Jolie Curtsinger.

Here's how the play is billed: "Kenny lived his life in secret. These secrets lead his mother and sister to an unfamiliar town looking for answers. With the help of a local policewoman, they uncover tragic truths about him, their family and themselves."

The production has scenic design by James J. Fenton, costume design by Patricia Doherty, lighting design by Todd Wren and properties by Jon Knust.

Additional titles for the winter season include Nick Starr's One Thousand Blinks (now through Jan. 29); the Lia Romeo and Tony Biancosino musical Lovesick (Feb. 3-25); Jack Canfora's Poetic License (Feb. 9-March 4); Joyce Hokin Sachs's Eternal Equinox (March 1-31); and Marcella Goheen's The Maria Project (March 6-April 1).
