Tony Award nominee Bobby Steggert and Emmy Award nominee Paul Anthony Stewart co-star in the world premiere of Tony nominee Chad Beguelin's Harbor, beginning Aug. 28 at the Westport Country Playhouse.
Joining Steggert (Ragtime, The Nightingale, The Grand Manner) and Stewart (The People in the Picture, "Guiding Light") are Kate Nowlin (Anthony and Cleopatra) and Alexis Molnar ("The Next Big Thing").
According to Westport, "Harbor opens with Ted and Kevin, who have been together for 10 years, in their picture perfect house in Sag Harbor. When Kevin's ne'er-do-well sister Donna, whom he hasn't seen in years, and her 15-year-old daughter arrive out of the blue, the pair's idyllic life changes and tensions quickly bubble to the surface. The bonds between kith and kin are tested in this alternately biting, touching and hilarious new comedy about the constantly shifting nature of the meaning of family."
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.
