The five-week limited engagement will continue through May 5.
The cast includes MacLeod Andrews, Maxwell Hamilton, Seth Numrich (who will co-star in the London revival of Sweet Bird of Youth opposite Kim Cattrall) and Wendy vanden Heuvel.
Slipping, according to press notes, is the "coming-of-age story of Eli. Alone, numb, and friendless after the death of his father, he moves with his English professor mom from San Francisco for a fresh start in Iowa. A new relationship with a boy at school exposes him again to the possibility of closeness and the danger of being swallowed by it."
The production has set design by John McDermott; costume design by Rachel Myers; lighting design by Leigh Allen; sound design by Janie Bullard; video and projection design by Kaitlyn Pietras; and property design by Timm Carney. Slipping's Los Angeles casting director is Mark Bennett; assistant director is Sarah Haught; producing for Rattlestick in L.A. are Addie Johnson-Talbott and Gaalan Michaelson.
