The world-premiere production is set to begin previews September 30 with an official opening night set for October 24 at the company’s Peter Jay Sharp Theater.

Pierce will play Nate Martin in the new play, a hopelessly single man in the wake of another failed relationship. “When his most recent breakup, another in a lifelong string of ill-fated matches, casts him into a funk, he turns to the only source of wisdom he trusts: the stars,” state press notes. “Poring over astrological charts, he obsessively questions his past and his place in the cosmos. But in Adam Bock’s disarming new play, the answer he receives, when it comes, is shockingly obvious – and totally unpredictable.”

The production will feature scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Matt Frey and sound design by Mikhail Fiksel. Production stage manager is Erin Gioia Albrecht.

Bock’s plays include A Small Fire, The Drunken City, The Receptionist and The Thugs.

Single tickets will be available from August 29 and may be purchased online via and, by phone at (212) 279-4200 and in person at the Ticket Central Box Office, 416 West 42nd Street, New York.
