Sullivan Jones (Hulu’s The Looming Tower) has been tapped to lead the company of The Winning Side, a new play by James Wallert. The production from Epic Theatre Ensemble will begin October 3 at the Theatre Row’s Acorn Theatre, where opening night is set for October 8. Performances are scheduled through October 28.

Jones will star as Wernher von Braun, the real-life engineer for the Third Reich-turned NASA rocket scientist. The play explores his hand in the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing.

Ron Russell directs a cast that also includes Melissa Friedman as Margot, Godfrey L. Simmons, Jr. as Major Taggert, and Devin E. Haqq. (Russell and Friedman are co-founders of Epic Theatre Ensemble, along with James Wallert.)

The production feature sets and projection design by Chika Shimizu, lighting design by Cat Tate Starmer, costumes by Betsy Rugg-Hinds, and sound design by Russell.
