Trip Cullman (Dog Sees God, A Small Fire) directs the comedy about a young woman whose summer share turns into a nightmare. Performances continue through July 31.

In addition to Schreck (Circle Mirror Transformation, The Language Archive), who stars in the title role, Keenan-Bolger (Spelling Bee, Peter and the Starcatcher), Cox (La Cage aux Folles; Caroline, or Change) and Steggert (Ragtime, The Grand Manner), the cast includes John Behlmann (Journey's End), Tom Riis Farrell (Coram Boy), Tim Intravia (Oswald), Jacob Hoffman and Kate O’Phalen.

Designing the production are Walt Spangler (set design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), Emily Rebholz (costume design) and Bart Fasbender (sound design).

According to Bay Street, "Betty's idea of a summer vacation is blown to bits when her house mates begin to file in. One after another, each inhabitant of the house share begins to show their true colors which are simply 'psycho-delic.' This will be a summer Betty will never forget."

Durang's works include Why Torture Is Wrong and the People Who Love Them, Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You, Baby with the Bathwater, Betty's Summer Vacation, The Marriage of Bette and Boo, Laughing Wild, Miss Witherspoon and Adrift in Macao. He also provided material for the Broadway production of All About Me.
