Tony Award winner Julie White, Aya Cash, Will Rogers, and Joel Van Liew will star in Manhattan Theatre Club's production of Liz Flahive's From Up Here, to begin performances on March 27, with an official opening on April 16. This production, which is presented in association with Ars Nova, will be directed by Leigh Silverman. Additional casting will be announced in the coming weeks.

The play concerns a high school senior who needs to apologize to his entire school for something he did. Flahive is a graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts Department of Dramatic Writing. Her plays have been produced, workshopped or read at NYU, Williamstown Theater Festival, Naked Angels, and Ars Nova.

The creative team will feature Allen Moyer (sets), Mattie Ulrich (costumes), and Pat Collins (lighting). Silverman's many credits include Yellow Face, Well, The Beebo Brinker Chronicles, and Blue Door. She will also direct the world premieres of Brooke Berman's Hunting and Gathering and Tanya Barfield's Of Equal Measure later this season.

White won the 2007 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for The Little Dog Laughed. Her other stage credits include Fiction, The Heidi Chronicles, Dinner with Friends and Bad Dates. Her film and television work includes Michael Clayton, Cavemen, Six Feet Under, and Grace Under Fire.
