Rising Phoenix Repertory has announced casting for Lucy Thurber's Named, the seventh play in its Cino Nights series, to be presented on Sunday, February 27 at 7pm. Jenna Worsham will direct.

The play is described as follows: "college student Cora wakes in the middle of the night to find her best friend Emily gone. When Emily returns it looks as though the night will go like any other, except that tonight the girls are not alone--something, or someone, has come to visit. In a life experienced through the twin lenses of our physical reality and the reality in our minds, we hide our desire, our shame, and our longing. But what happens when the world inside Cora's head comes to life and enters the room? Is she brave enough to admit what she sees, to give it a name?"

The cast will include Lila Dupree, Ronete Levenson, Katie Meister, and Sarah Tolan-Mee.

The Cino Nights series presents new plays commissioned by the company that are "fully produced on half a shoestring and performed, warts and all."

Admission is free. Reservations can be made by calling 212-946-5198. For more information, click here.
