Julie Boyd and Katie Rose Clarke will join the cast of Craig Lucas' Prayer for My Enemy, when it moves to Connecticut's Long Wharf Theatre, September 12-October 14. The play, which is directed by Bartlett Sher, is at Seattle's Intiman Theatre through August 26.

The show stars James McMenamin and Daniel Zaitchik as childhood friends Tad and Billy, who are unexpectedly reunited as adults when Tad returns home divorced and Billy is about to be sent to Iraq. John Procaccino and Cynthia Lauren Tewes -- who starred on the hit TV series The Love Boat under the name Lauren Tewes -- play Billy's parents, Austin and Karen.

Boyd, who will take over the role of the mysterious Delores, has appeared on Broadway in The Man Who Came to Dinner and Noises Off, among other shows. Clarke, who will take over the role of Marianne, starred as Clara in the Broadway and national tour productions of The Light in the Piazza.

The creative team will include John McDermott (sets), Catherine Zuber (costumes), Stephen Strawbridge (lights), and Stephen LeGrand (sound). Zuber won Tony Awards for The Light in the Piazza and Awake and Sing! -- both of which were directed by Sher -- as well as The Coast of Utopia. She and Sher will collaborate once more on the Lincoln Center Theater revival of South Pacific, set to open on Broadway in the spring of 2008.
