Ken Rus Schmoll directs the play, previously seen Off-Off-Broadway in a 13P production, about a young American businessman who embarks on a surreal and unsettling journey when he begins work at a company in an unspecified, vaguely Eastern European country where he does not speak the language and his colleagues have strange ideas and habits. Zak Orth (Misalliance, Major Barbara) will also star, playing the businessman. Parisse plays a beautiful local with whom he become briefly involved.
Previews begin Oct. 19. Opening is Nov. 7.
Parisse recently acted in Coastal Disturbances at Berkshire Theatre Festival. In 2001, she appeared in Keith Bunin's The Credeaux Canvas at Playwrights Horizons.
The rest of the Vineyard Theatre 25th season (subject to change) is as follows:
From the author of Peter Pan comes the story of "a girl who might just be a ghost." The work, first performed in 1920, will return to the New York stage for the first time in more than 50 years. Tina Landau will direct.
Terry Kinney directs the Lab Production Series presentation of the play about "one desperate writer's ultimate revenge" penned by and featuring Nicky Silver. The special developmental production will be open to Vineyard Theatre members only.
