Performances of the satire continue through Feb. 9 at the Lucille Lortel Theater.
Directed by Red Bull artistic director Jesse Berger, the cast includes Rebecca Brooksher (Dying City, Love's Labor's Lost) as Fay, Eric Martin Brown (The Dance of Death, Suddenly Last Summer) as Meadows, Jarlath Conroy (The Seagull, The Iceman Cometh) as McLeavy, Ryan Garbayo (Unrequited, Final Analysis) as Dennis, Rocco Sisto (Volpone, Old Fashioned Prostitutes) as Truscott and Nick Westrate (Tribes, A Moon for the Misbegotten) as Hal.
Here's how the production is billed: "This 'Comedy of Horrors' is a merciless satire of religious hypocrisy, middle-class British morality, and blind faith in authority. The McLeavy's are in mourning, but young Hal and his partner-in-crime need someplace to stash their loot. When Scotland Yard's finest comes sniffing about, no one escapes suspicion, from the naughty nurse to dear old gardening dad. And where did Mrs. McLeavy's body go? Orton's wicked stew of Oscar Wilde and Kafka is sexy, sharp-witted, and shocking."
