The LAByrinth Theater Company launches its 2011 season with the play, which centers around a dying man and his three estranged children. LAB co-artistic director Mimi O'Donnell will direct. It officially opens Feb. 15 and will run through March 6.
The cast will feature Elizabeth Canavan as Renee, Stephen Ellis as Benjy, Lisa Joyce as Cassie, Megan Mostyn-Brown as Angela, Alfredo Narciso as Gary, Deirdre O'Connell as Gwen, Aaron Roman Weiner as Henry and David Zayas as Mark.
According to the LAByrinth, "Martin is debt-ridden, gambling addicted, pissed as hell and dying. Unfortunately his three estranged children couldn't care less. Instead they argue with each other and everyone around them in a desperate struggle to do the right thing and mend their rapidly deteriorating lives. As the world around them crumbles, they are each surprised to discover family in unexpected places."
The production will have set design by Lee Savage, costume design by Bobby Frederick Tilley II, lighting design by Japhy Weideman and sound design by Jeremy Lee.
