Opening night is scheduled for Aug. 25, and the production will continue through Sept. 14 in The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center.
Directed by Caitlin McLeod, the cast includes Trae Harris (Newlyweeds, "Orange Is the New Black") as Young Jamie, Rachel Nicks ("Nurse Jackie," Life Support) as Jamie, Emily Skeggs (Fun Home, Transport) as Young Dee and Samantha Soule (A Fable, Detroit '67) as Dee.
"Two imprisoned teenagers, one black, one white, form a perilous bond," press notes state. "As the young women serve time, they forge a plan for survival. When the outside world proves even more dangerous than the jail itself, their private world becomes an untenable practice ground for their new lives. And I and Silence explores the fierce dreams of youth and the brutal reality of adulthood in 1950's America."
All tickets for the initial run of the production are $25 as part of the Signature Ticket Initiative: A Generation of Access.
The Pershing Square Signature Center is located at 480 West 42nd Street. Tickets and more information are available by calling (212) 244-7529 or visiting signaturetheatre.org.
