Mark Brokaw (The Lyons, Cinderella) will direct the production that runs through Sept. 8. Oblivion is penned by Carly Mensch, whose other works include Now Circa Then, All Hail Hurricane Gordo and Len, Alseep in Vinyl. She has also written for "Nurse Jackie" and "Weeds."
In addition to Day (Proof, The Realistic Joneses) and Rogers (The Royal Family), the cast includes Katie Broad (Stop the Virgens, The Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side) and Aidan Kunze ("Raising Helen").
"I wanted to write a play about lying," Mensch said in a statement. "I also wanted to write a play about the difficulty of parenting in the modern age. I would hope that audience members leave questioning their own blind spots and prejudices, and examining whether they think they’re as open-minded as they say they are."
The design team includes Neil Patel (scenic design), Michael Krass (costume design), Japhy Weideman (lighting design) and Obadiah Eaves (sound design).
