Jill Eikenberry, Chad Hoeppner, Jonny Orsini, and Wrenn Schmidt will star in the world premiere of Bekah Brunstetter's Be a Good Little Widow, to be performed at Ars Nova, April 20-May 14, with an opening on May 2. Stephen Brackett will direct.

In the play, Melody (Schmidt) thought being a young wife was hard, until she became a widow. Luckily her mother-in-law, Hope (Eikenberry), is a professional - mourner, that is. Navigating the prickly terrain of pressed black dresses, well-intended advice and inappropriate outbursts, Melody stumbles toward understanding what it means to find someone through losing them.

The production will feature set design by Daniel Zimmerman, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Burke Brown, and sound design by Bart Fasbender.
