The Vineyard Theatre has announced casting for its production of Nicky Silver’s This Day Forward, directed by Mark Brokaw. The new comedy about love, marriage and the secrets of one’s past is set to open the Off-Broadway theatre’s 2016-17 season.
The cast of the world premiere will be made up of Andrew Burnap (Troilus And Cressida), Michael Crane (Gloria), Holley Fain (Grey’s Anatomy), Francesca Faridany (The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time), Tony nominee June Gable (Candide) and Joe Tippett (Airline Highway).
This Day Forward reunites Brokaw and Silver following their collaboration on The Lyons, which transferred to Broadway in 2012 following a hit run at The Vineyard. Performances of their latest work are set to begin November 3 with an official opening night set for November 21.
Here is how the Vineyard bills the new play: “In this new comedy about love and marriage and everything in-between, Martin thinks he has just married the girl of his dreams, but when Irene makes a surprising confession in their honeymoon suite, all their well-made plans fall apart. Nearly 50 years later, Irene’s children wrestle with their past and a mother whose secrets are quickly fading along with her memory.”
This Day Forward will feature scenic design by Allen Moyer (Dot, They Lyons), costumes by Kaye Voyce (Ironbound), lighting by David Lander (The Lyons) and original music and sound design by David Van Tieghem (Billy & Ray).
Single tickets for This Day Forward are now available at VineyardTheatre.org or by calling (212) 353-0303.
