Directed by Tony Award nominee Wilson Milam (The Lieutenant of Inishmore), performances are scheduled to begin Feb. 4 at the Cherry Lane Theater (38 Commerce Street) with an official opening Feb. 17.
The four-member cast comprises Donna Bullock (Ragtime, “Against the Grain”) as Natalie, Scott Drummond (Hamlet, “All My Children”) as Mark, Daniel Oreskes (Billy Elliot, The Miracle Worker) as Elliot and Michael T. Weiss (The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity, “The Pretender”) as John.
At its core, A Perfect Future, press note state, "explores the question of whether people can be married and truly love each other when their political persuasions are diametrically opposed. Set in 2005, the action takes place in the apartment of two well heeled New Yorkers, Natalie and John, who are hosting a dinner for Elliot, a friend from their days as college radicals. Also invited to the party is Mark, a straight-laced young man from John’s risk management firm. Over the course of a raucous evening filled with wine and merriment, their basic belief systems are upended, as the four must come to terms with each other’s true politics and behavior."
David Hay's The Maddening Truth, about legendary writer Martha Gellhorn, had a successful Off-Broadway run at the Clurman Theatre. A graduate of the UCLA Film Theater and Television School and a cultural critic, Hay has also written and directed three films, including "Dirt Cheap."
The creative team includes Charles Corcoran (set), Michael McDonald (costumes), Ben Stanton (lights) and Daniel Kluger (sound). The production stage manager is Donald Fried.
