Wager's piece, which begins previews on September 18, is adapted from Yvonne Latty's book about the experience of 17 Iraq War veterans. The Athiest, which begins previews on October 6, has previously been seen at the Culture Project, Boston's Huntington Theatre, and the Williamstown Theatre Festival. The show, to be directed by Justin Waldman, focuses on Augustine Early, a crooked journalist who makes an art of clawing his way up the professional ladder.
