The new play by Blackburn Prize winner Marlane Meyer (The Chemistry of Change, Moe's Lucky Seven, Etta Jenks) is directed by Lisa Peterson. Performances will continue through Dec. 1.
The cast features Candy Buckley (Scandalous, Cabaret, Shockheaded Peter, View of the Dome), Obie Award winner Rob Campbell (Small Tragedy, Translations, The Singing Forest, Him, Mad Forest), Laura Heisler (Kin, Doris to Darlene, People Be Heard, Coram Boy), Haynes Thigpen (Our House, Dead Accounts, Misalliance), Danny Wolohan and Jacqueline Wright (Clyt at Home).
"Aubrey (Ms. Heisler), a very determined romantic, believes she's met her soul-mate in Calvin (Mr. Campbell), a boozing womanizer," press notes state. "But in this tilted, thoughtful comedy, true love is an even more tangled predicament. Peopled by an assortment of eccentrics, mystics and front porch philosophers, this new play from Marlane Meyer is a sweet polemic, an unexpected love story, and a deliciously cockeyed view of the sustaining — and destructive — power of belief."
The production also includes scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Paloma Young, lighting design by Russell Champa and sound design by Darron L West. Production stage manager is Marisa Levy.
