Performances begin November 3 for the Vineyard Theatre production of Nicky Silver’s This Day Forward, directed by Mark Brokaw. The world premiere reunites Brokaw and Silver following their collaboration on The Lyons, which transferred to Broadway in 2012 following a hit run at The Vineyard.
The new comedy about love, marriage, and the secrets of one’s past is set to officially open November 21. The cast is made up of Andrew Burnap (Troilus and Cressida), Michael Crane (Gloria), Holley Fain (Grey’s Anatomy), Francesca Faridany (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Tony nominee June Gable (Candide), and Joe Tippett (Airline Highway).
Here is how the Vineyard bills the new play: “In this new comedy about love and marriage and everything in-between, Martin thinks he has just married the girl of his dreams, but when Irene makes a surprising confession in their honeymoon suite, all their well-made plans fall apart. Nearly 50 years later, Irene’s children wrestle with their past and a mother whose secrets are quickly fading along with her memory.”
This Day Forward features scenic design by Allen Moyer (Dot, They Lyons), costumes by Kaye Voyce (Ironbound), lighting by David Lander (The Lyons), and original music and sound design by David Van Tieghem (Billy & Ray).
