The Open House officially opens March 3 and continues through March 23 at the Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center. It is directed by Oliver Butler. 

The cast includes Bos (Blood Play, Buddy Cop 2), Countryman (Wit, Dancing at Lughnasa), Friedman (The Great God Pan, Twelve Angry Men), McCarthy (Grace, “Killing Kennedy”) and McCormick (“Law & Order”).

"People have been born into families since people started getting born at all," press notes state. "Playwrights have been trying to write Family Plays for a long time, too. And typically these plays try to answer endlessly complicated questions of blood and duty and inheritance and responsibility. They try to answer the question, 'Can things really change?' People have been trying nobly for years and years to have plays solve in two hours what hasn't been solved in many lifetimes. This has to stop."

The creative team includes Antje Ellermann (set design), Bobby Frederick Tilley II (costume design), David Lander (lighting design) and M.L. Dogg (sound design).

All tickets for the initial run of the production are $25 as part of the Signature Ticket Initiative: A Generation of Access.

The 2013-14 season at Signature Theatre consists entirely of plays receiving world or New York-premiere productions.

Subscriptions to Signature Theatre and tickets to individual productions can be purchased by calling the Signature Theatre Box Office at (212) 244-7529 or by visiting signaturetheatre.org.
