Casting has been announced for the Alley Theatre production of Theresa Rebeck's What We're Up Against, a new dark comedy about a female architect who hits the workplace glass ceiling, which will begin its Houston run May 11.
As previously reported, Scott Schwartz (Golda's Balcony, Mauritius) stages the production that will officially open May 16 for a run through June 10 on the Neuhaus Stage.

What We're Up Against is presented as part of the Alley's New Play Initiative Program.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
