Joining the previously announced Emilia Fox are Polly Adams, Emma Fielding, Adam James and Shannon Tarbet, under the direction of Peter DuBois. Rapture, Blister, Burn, which was a 2013 Pulitzer Prize finalist, premiered at Off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons in June 2012, where it was also directed by DuBois.
The play is described in press materials as a "witty dissection of gender politics. After university Catherine and Gwen chose opposite paths: Catherine built a career as a rock-star academic, while Gwen built a home with a husband and children. Decades later each woman covets the other's life, and a dangerous game begins as each tries to claim the other's territory."
