The Amoralists, a seven-year-old downtown off-Broadway theater company, has set the dates for its New York premiere of Rantoul and Die, the opening production of its summer season called "The Summer of the Amoralists."
Written by Mark Roberts, best known as creator of the CBS sitcom Mike and Molly, Rantoul and Die is set to run at the Cherry Lane Theatre from June 12-July 20 with an official opening scheduled for June 24. The play follows the characters Rallis and Debbie through their crumbling marriage and explores how far a man will go to salvage a sour relationship. Jay Stull, literary manager for The Amoralists, will direct the production.
The cast will feature The Amoralists' resident playwright Derek Ahonen (The Cheaters Club), Sarah Lemp (The Bad and the Better), Matthew Pilieci (Through The Yellow Hour), and Vanessa Vaché (The Bad and the Better).
The creative team includes Alfred Schatz (sets), Evan Roby (lighting), Jaime Torres (costumes), and Jeanne Travis (sound). Nick Trotta serves as associate director.
