Directed by Emily Mann, the production will officially open Jan. 25 for a limited engagement through Feb. 17.

The cast will feature two-time Obie Award winner and Tony nominee Kathleen Chalfant (Agnes), Tony Award winner John Glover (Tobias), three-time Tony nominee Mary Beth Hurt (Claire), Roberta Maxwell (Edna), James A. Stephens (Harry) and Francesca Faridany (Julia).

The production will also have set design by Daniel Ostling, costume design by Jennifer von Mayrhauser, lighting by Lap Chi Chu and stage management by Alison Cote.

Tickets range from $20-$65, and are available online at www.mccarter.org, by phone at (609) 258-2787, and in person at the McCarter Theatre ticket office (91 University Place, Princeton).
