Directed by Flea resident director Benjamin Kamine, the limited engagement continues through Oct. 7 and features members of the Flea's resident acting ensemble, The Bats.

The Bats, who have recently appeared in world premieres by A.R. Gurney, Will Eno, Adam Rapp and more, include Bradley Anderson, Mimi Augustin, Jaspal Binning, Ugo Chukwu, Alex Coelho, Timothy Craig, Jimmy Dailey, Edgar Eguia, Eric Folks, Cleo Gray, Grant Harrison, Layla Khosnoudi, Adam Lebowitz-Lockard, Abraham Makany, Sean McIntyre, Chester Poon, Ivano Pulito, Marie-Claire Roussel, Stephen Stout and Jennifer Tsay.

In Job, according to the Flea, "Thomas Bradshaw takes on a sacred biblical text to explore issues of faith. How low will God go? Bradshaw calls his play an honest, un-cynical adaptation of the book of Job."

Other members of the creative team include set designer Aaron Green, lighting designer Jonathan Cottle, costume designer Ashley Farra, sound designer Jeremy Bloom and production stage manager Courtney Ulrich.

Playwright Bradshaw's most recent work, Burning, was seen at the New Group in New York, and in 2011 the Goodman Theater produced his play Mary. His other works include The Bereaved, Southern Promises, Dawn and Cleansed, among others.
