Directed by Actors Theatre associate artistic director Meredith McDonough (Actors Theatre's The Whipping Man), the run continues in rep through April 7.
The cast includes Jim Frangione (The Old Neighborhood, Oleanna at the Alley Theater) as Thomas, Bruce McKenzie (The Farnsworth Invention) as Frank, Catherine Combs (Adam Rapp's The Edge of Our Bodies at Humana) as Adrianne and Meredith Forlenza (A Behanding in Spokane, Pal Joey) as Ellen.
Here's how ATL bills the work: "From the moment Frank Bay and his daughter Adrianne arrive at Thomas Wright's secluded lake house, Thomas and his daughter are out to get them. Thomas' writing has brought him fame and fortune, but fellow novelist Frank still struggles to find a foothold in the literary world for himself and for Adrianne, also an aspiring author. Over the course of one fraught evening, as the men confront their professional jealousies and personal failures, their offspring are drawn inexorably into the fray — and words become weapons."
The production team includes Daniel Zimmerman (scenic designer), Lorraine Venburg (costume designer), Russell H. Champa and Dani Clifford (co-lighting designers) and Benjamin Marcum (sound designer).
