The Williamstown Theatre Festival has announced two cast changes for its upcoming production of the late Wendy Wasserstein's An American Daughter, which will be presented on the Main Stage August 3-21.

Due to scheduling conflicts, Diane Davis will replace the previously announced Kate Walsh, and Kerry Bishe will replace the previously announced Grace Gummer.

The cast also includes Saidah Arrika Ekulona, Roe Hartrampf, Stephen Kunken, Darren Pettie, Will Pullen and Deborah Rush.

“When the President of the United States nominates Dr. Lyssa Dent Hughes (Davis) to the position of Surgeon General, the excavation of her past triggers a scandal that threatens her confirmation,” according to press notes. “As partisan politics play out, Lyssa’s deep personal relationships and impressive career trajectory hang in the balance.”

Evan Cabnet directs Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Wasserstein’s 1997 play about the price one woman pays when she dares to have it all.

Tickets are available at wtfestival.org and by phone at (413) 458-3200, ext. 17.
