New York's Rattlestick Playwrights Theater presents the Los Angeles premiere of Slipping, written and directed by Daniel Talbott, which officially opens April 13 following previews that began April 4 at Elephant Stages' Lillian Theatre.

The five-week limited engagement will continue through May 5.

The cast includes MacLeod Andrews, Maxwell Hamilton, Seth Numrich (who will co-star in the London revival of Sweet Bird of Youth opposite Kim Cattrall) and Wendy vanden Heuvel.

Slipping, according to press notes, is the "coming-of-age story of Eli. Alone, numb, and friendless after the death of his father, he moves with his English professor mom from San Francisco for a fresh start in Iowa. A new relationship with a boy at school exposes him again to the possibility of closeness and the danger of being swallowed by it."

The production has set design by John McDermott; costume design by Rachel Myers; lighting design by Leigh Allen; sound design by Janie Bullard; video and projection design by Kaitlyn Pietras; and property design by Timm Carney. Slipping's Los Angeles casting director is Mark Bennett; assistant director is Sarah Haught; producing for Rattlestick in L.A. are Addie Johnson-Talbott and Gaalan Michaelson.

Show times are Thursday-Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM and 7 PM.

Tickets are $34 (with discounts available for theatre artists, students and seniors) and are available through Brown Paper Tickets at or by calling (800) 838-3006.

Elephant Stages' Lillian Theatre is located at 1076 Lillian Way, Los Angeles.
