Directed by Nick Sandow, the limited engagement will begin previews May 30 with an official opening June 2. The production will play through June 23. The company comprises Catherine Curtin (The Accomplices, Aunt Dan and Lemon), Ken Forman (Wilder, Wilder, Wilder—Three By Thornton), Bess Rouss (Open House, If Only), Annabella Sciorra (Roar, Under the Blue Sky, "Jungle Fever," "The Sopranos") and Angelica Torn (Anna Christie, Side Man, Edge).

"On a wintry day in March prior to the biggest snowstorm of the year," Riverdale press notes read, "four women set out from The Bronx to visit Louise's son, Franky, who has been incarcerated at the Riverhead Correctional Facility. As visiting hours end at 6 PM sharp, the women find themselves racing against the clock in an overcrowded car, while they brave the elements, each other's outlandish behavior and battle their own inner demons. Gradually, Louise's adult daughter Rosie begins to realize that her mother's angst stems from far more than this imminent Riverhead reunion."

The design team includes Victoria Imperioli (set and costume design), Tony Giovannetti (lighting design) and David M. Lawson (sound design).

Performances are Wednesday-Saturday at 8 PM at Studio Dante, 257 West 29th Street. Tickets, priced $35, are available by calling (212) 868-4444 or by visiting
