The Williamstown Theatre Festival's production of Coward's Tonight at 8:30, Program B, starring Charlotte D'Amboise and Bill Irwin, and directed by Anne Reinking, will end its run on July 2. The show started June 17 (at 8 PM, actually) and costars Terrence Mann (The Scarlet Pimpernel), Joan Copeland (The Torch-Bearers) and Christopher Fitzgerald (Saturday Night).

Program A, featuring Blythe Danner and Stephen Collins, ended on July 1.

Williamstown presents six of the original ten one-acts which made up Coward's play. The one-acts are be divided into two programs, which are performed in repertory by different casts.

A monstrously complicated undertaking, Michael Greif (Rent) directs Program A, while Ann Reinking pilots Program B. Danner and Collins are featured in the Program A only, which includes Hands Across the Sea -- about a family of rude Brits who, after inviting some party guests from the U.S., forget who they are and neglect them completely -- as well as We Were Dancing and Family Album. Program B features d'Amboise and Irwin in Star Chamber, Shadow Play and Red Peppers, the last about a husband and wife vaudeville team who comically argue backstage between their worn-out routines.

The credits for Tonight at 8:30, Program B runs as follows: Program B
