The world premiere of Sunday, a new play by Harry Potter and the Cursed Child playwright Jack Thorne, has found its cast. The company will include Juliana Canfield, seen on screen in Succession and Off-Broadway recently in The House That Will Not Stand, Maurice Jones (Saint Joan, The Cherry Orchard), and Sadie Scott (Downtown Race Riot).
In Sunday, directed by Obie winner Lee Sunday Evans (In the Green), friends gather for a book group, anxious to prove their intellectual worth, but that anxiety gets the better of any actual discussion as emotional truths come pouring out.
Performances will begin September 4 ahead of a September 23 opening in the Linda Gross Theatre.
Rounding out the cast are Ruby Frankel (Off-Broadway debut; NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Atlantic Acting School 2017), Zane Pais (Dead Poets Society), and Christian Strange (Off-Broadway debut).
Sunday will feature scenic design by Brett J. Banakis, costume design by Ntokozo Fuzunina Kunene, lighting design by Masha Tsimring, sound design by Lee Kinney, original compositions by Daniel Kluger, and casting by Telsey + Company: Will Cantler, CSA; Karyn Casl, CSA.
The limited run is scheduled through October 13. Visit Atlantictheater.org for more information.
