Award-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter's comedy The Few will receive its world premiere at The Old Globe; previews will begin Sept. 28 prior to an official opening Oct. 3.
Directed by Davis McCallum, the cast will feature Gideon Glick (Matthew), Eva Kaminsky (QZ), Michael Laurence (Bryan) and Jenny Bacon (Voice of Cindy).
"QZ keeps her small newspaper going in her northern Idaho town by running personal ads from lovelorn truckers," press notes state. "When Bryan, her publisher and former lover, returns, the two must revisit the past and reconsider the roads their own long-haul journey has travelled."
The Few will also feature the voices of 17 San Diego residents who auditioned to portray the lonely characters who place personal ads for the play’s struggling newspaper via answering machine.
The creative team includes Dane Laffrey (scenic design), Jessica Pabst (costume design), Matt Frey (lighting design), Daniel Kluger (original music and sound design), Caparelliotis Casting (casting) and Annette Yé (stage manager).
Hunter's works include The Whale and A Bright New Boise. His plays A Great Wilderness and Rest are set to premiere in the 2013-14 season.
