In Magnetic North, according to the producers, "James (Campbell) reconnects with Mara (Harper), an old girlfriend, during a period of crisis in his marriage to Leigh (Shahinian). Their casual meeting brings half-forgotten memories and questionable desires suddenly to the surface. After James tells a co-worker (Foster) of the meeting, the casual get-together slowly begins to erode everything James and Mara believed to be true."

Magnetic North was the winner of the 2006 Clauder Competition for Best New Play. It made its world premiere at Portland Stage in April 2008.

The production will feature scenic design by Alexis Distler, costume design by Bobby Pearce, lighting design by Michael Gottlieb and sound design by Jacob Subotnick. Angela Kiessel is the production stage manager.
