Original Principal Cast: Laurie Metcalf as Juliana, Daniel Stern as Ian, Zoe Perry as The Woman and John Schiappa as The Man.

Synopsis: In the play, which is billed as a thriller, Metcalf played Juliana Smithton, "a successful neurologist whose life seems to be coming unhinged," according to Manhattan Theatre Club. "Her husband (Daniel Stern) has filed for divorce, her daughter (Zoe Perry) has eloped with a much older man (John Schiappa) and her own health is in jeopardy. But in this brilliantly crafted work, nothing is as it seems. Piece by piece, a mystery unfolds as fact blurs with fiction, past collides with present and the elusive truth about Juliana boils to the surface."
