Casting has been announced for Ethan Coen’s first full-length world-premiere play, Women Or Nothing, which will play Off-Broadway's Atlantic Theater Company at the Linda Gross Theater.

Previews will begin Aug. 28 prior to an official opening Sept. 16. Performances will continue through Oct. 6.

Directed by David Cromer (Adding Machine, Our Town, Tribes), the cast includes Robert Beitzel (Our Town), Halley Feiffer (The House of Blue Leaves), Susan Pourfar (Tribes) and Tony nominee Deborah Rush (Noises Off, Blithe Spirit, “Orange is the New Black,” “Strangers with Candy”).

"Women or Nothing is a play about two women so desperate to have a child that one of them will even sleep with a man," press notes state. "Who the man is, what he thinks is going on, what the women think about what he thinks, and what the mother of one of the women reveals about her own colorful past — it all defies belief. Why then does it all make sense?"

The production will also feature scenic design by Michele Spadaro, costume design by Sarah Laux, lighting design by Bradley King and original music and sound design by Daniel Kluger.
