The Chicago premiere plays to April 10, under Rick Snyder's direction. The 90-minute comedy of manners about two sets of parents (Michael and Veronica, Annette and Alan) meeting to discuss a playground incident involving their sons was a hit in Paris, London and Broadway. It won the Best Play Tony Award in Christopher Hampton's translation.
Opening night is March 14. Fisher (playing poised hostess Veronica) appeared in Goodman's Rock 'n' Roll and The Seagull; Kupferer (playing Michael) appeared in Goodman's Passion Play and The Dark Night; Lacke (playing nauseous Annette) appeared in Man From Nebraska and Frost/Nixon; and Pasquesi (playing lawyer Alan) was seen in Sin and Romance.
Playwright Reza also penned the plays Conversations After a Burial, Winter Crossing, Art, The Unexpected Man, Life x 3 and A Spanish Play.
Snyder, who also directed Reza's Art at Steppenwolf Theatre (2009), has assembled an award-winning design team to bring this sophisticated home in the Cobble Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, to life: set designer Takeshi Kata, costume designer Birgit Rattenborg Wise, lighting designer Robert Christen and sound designer Richard Woodbury.
