Directed by Wilson Milam, the production will officially open July 11. Performances will continue through Aug. 8.
The cast comprises Ian Alda, Andrew Connolly, Coby Getzug, Seán G. Griffin, Kevin Kearns, Zoe Perry, Chris Pine and Brett Ryback.
The black comedy, according to CTG notes, "is a blistering, graphic satire on violence set in 1993 on the rocky island of Inishmore. Padraic (Pine), a hard-boiled terrorist, has been away in Northern Ireland with his busy schedule of torture and assorted nationalist mayhem, but he is lured home to Inishmore by the news that his beloved cat, Wee Thomas, is doing poorly. When Padraic finds out Wee Thomas has been murdered, he initiates a cycle of revenge-killing that threatens everyone in his path, except perhaps the love-struck Mairead (Zoe Perry), a 16-year-old terrorist groupie with a BB gun."
The production also features scenic design by Laura Fine Hawkes, costume design by Stephanie Kerley Schwartz, lighting design by Brian Gale and sound design by Cricket S. Myers. The stage manager is David S. Franklin.
