Directed by Wendy Dann, the Pinter work will play the Ithaca, NY, venue July 22-Aug. 1.
The cast will comprise Rosie Benton (Les Liaisons Dangereuses and Accent on Youth) as Emma, John Wernke (Accent on Youth and The American Plan) as Jerry and Kaplan as Robert. Marcin Pawlikiewicz and Robert J. De Luca round out the cast as the two waiters.
"The passionate drama," according to press notes, "is a fresh retelling of a woman’s illicit relationship with her husband’s best friend." "Pinter's innovative structure and spare language paint an unflinching and riveting portrait of deception," said director Dann in a statement.
The production will feature set and costume design by Pete Rush and sound design by Eric Watkins with original music composed by Ryan Rumery.
The Hangar Theatre is located 2 miles outside of Downtown Ithaca, New York, at the Treman Marina entrance of Cass Park. For tickets call (607) 273-4497, or visit www.hangartheatre.org.
