As previously reported, the Woodshed Collective enlisted Bekah Brunstetter, Sarah Burgess, Paul Cohen, Dylan Dawson, Steven Levenson and Tommy Smith to pen a story based on a different character in the piece.

Teddy Bergman and Stephen Brackett direct the Aug. 10-Sept. 17 run, which will encompass five stories in the West-Park Presbyterian Church, located on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Tenant officially opens Aug. 24.

In addition, Tony Award-winning Spring Awakening composer Duncan Sheik has aligned with David Van Tieghem to create a score for the piece.

"Set in Paris and inspired by the novella that was famously adapted into a film by Roman Polanski, The Tenant is a thrilling, haunting and grotesquely hilarious investigation into the relationship between who we are and where we live. When Monsieur Trelkovsky rents a room recently vacated by a woman who fell from her window, he soon finds his world changing in bizarre ways. Haunted by images of the previous tenant's apparent suicide and terrorized by his new neighbors, Trelkovsky begins a slow descent into paranoia and delirium," according to Woodshed Collective.

The cast includes Rob Askins, Juliette Cohen, Dan Cozzens, Michael Patrick Crane, Aaron Dias, Evan Enderle, Erin Felgar, Mary Jane Gibson, Stephen Graybill, Judith Greentree, Vanina Kondova, Jocelyn Kuritsky, Maren Langdon, Roger Lirtsman, Malcom Madera, Maria McConville, Melissa Miller, Michael Piazza, Lynne Rosenberg, Caitlin McDonough Thayer, Ian Unterman, Molly Ward and Travis York. Production design is by Gabriel Hainer Evansohn, with costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Carl Faber, sound design by Brandon Wolcott, video design by Josh Higgason, Alex Koch, Dave Tennet and Kate Freer.
