Directed by Sam Buntrock (a 2008 Tony Award nominee for his direction of Sunday in the Park With George), the production will play the New Jersey theatre through June 3. Opening is May 11.
In this new play, McCarter notes state, a "playwright is inexorably sucked into the tangle of the lives of a pair of abandoned children. An old Nantucket house, the secret of a long-dead children’s book author, a group of amateur actors, a career opportunity, and a mysterious stranger collide in this whirlwind of a play."
The design team includes David Farley (set and costumes), Ken Billington (lighting), Jill BC Du Boff (sound), Justin Ellington (composer) and Lisa Shriver (movement director and puppet consultant). The production stage manager is Cheryl Mintz with Marcy Victoria Reed as assistant stage manager.
Tickets start at $20 and can be purchased online at www.mccarter.org, by phone at (609) 258-2787, or in person at 91 University Place, Princeton.
