Grantham Coleman has signed on to star in Charles Fuller’s new play, One Night..., at the Cherry Lane Theater, according to ShowBiz 411. 



Coleman will play Horace Lloyd, described as a recent vet of the Iraq war who has a bipolar, explosive personality.

Directed by Clinton Turner Davis, One Night... will begin previews Oct. 17, prior to an official opening night Oct. 30. Performances will continue through Nov. 24.

"One Night…. takes an unflinching look at what has happened to women in the U.S. Armed Forces when their decision to serve their country exposes them to an unforeseen battle against their fellow soldiers," press notes state. "Home from war, One Night… explores the lingering effects of trauma and injustice and one woman's recompense."

Coleman most recently performed in Choir Boy at the Manhattan Theatre Club. He starred as Romeo in Actors Theatre of Louisville's production of Romeo and Juliet. His TV work includes "The Americans" and "Portraits in Dramatic Time."

The producers of One Night…. have announced that five percent of each ticket sale will be donated to organizations that support Afghanistan and Iraq war veterans who are victims of sexual assault. Patrons will have the opportunity to match the donation when purchasing tickets.
