Charles Fuller’s One Night… officially opens at the Cherry Lane Theatre Nov. 20 at 7 PM following previews that began Nov. 6.

The Cherry Lane Theatre and Rattlestick Playwrights Theater co-production continues through Dec. 15.

Rutina Wesley portrays Alicia in a company that also features Grantham Coleman, K.K. Moggie, Matthew Montelongo and Cortez Nance Jr.

"What happens to our servicemen and women when they come home?" press notes ask. "Exploring the lingering effects of trauma, injustice and one woman’s recompense, One Night… takes an unflinching look at what happens to women in the U.S. Armed Forces when their decision to serve exposes them to an unforeseen battle against their fellow soldiers." One Night… was commissioned by Cherry Lane Theatre.

Five percent of ticket proceeds benefit IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America), the first and largest non-profit, non-partisan organization for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.

The production also features scenic design by John McDermott; costume design by Jessica Jahn; lighting design by Nicole Pearce; sound design by Sean O’Halloran; and video design by Gil Sperling.

The production manager is Eugenia Furneaux; the production stage manager is C. Renee Alexander; and the assistant stage manager is Kristin Pfeifer.

Show times are Tuesday at 7 PM, Thursday and Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2 PM and 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.
