Billy Crudup and the cast and creators of Adam Rapp's new play The Metal Children greeted the media April 6 at an open rehearsal for the upcoming Vineyard Theatre show.
In his latest work, Rapp pens a "timely drama about a New York writer and his explosive encounter with a small American town that he travels to in order to defend one of his young adult novels, which has been banned by the local school board," according to Vineyard. "The controversy ignites heated emotions over religious beliefs and censorship."
Crudup is featured in a cast that also includes Guy Boyd, David Greenspan, Halley Wegryn Gross, Phoebe Strole, Betsy Aidem, Connor Barrett, Susan Blommaert and Jessy Hodges.
Here is a first look at the cast:
