Georgia Engel and Michael Park will join Linus Roache and Heather Burns in Will Eno's Middletown, which will begin previews on October 6 at the Vineyard Theatre. Ken Rus Schmoll will direct the production.

The play, set in a small American Town, focuses on the friendship that develops between a long-time resident (played by Roache) and a new arrival (to be played by Burns) and the journey through this world and beyond that they take together.

Engel's many theatrical credits include The Drowsy Chaperone, Hello, Dolly!, My One and Only, and House of Blue Leaves. She is well known for her television work, including The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Coach, and Everybody Loves Raymond.

Park recently won the 2010 Daytime Emmy Award for his role on CBS' As The World Turns. His many theater credits include Little Me, Smokey Joe's Cafe, Applause, and The Burnt Part Boys.

Roache's many stage credits include Coriolanus and Richard II opposite Ralph Fiennes. He may be best known from his Golden Globe-nominated portrayal of Robert F. Kennedy in the HBO mini-series RFK and from his work as Asst D.A. Michael Cutler on Law & Order.

Burns has been seen Off-Broadway in The Marriage of Bette and Boo, Fran's Bed, and Writer's Block and in the West End in This Is Our Youth. She currently stars in the HBO series Bored to Death. Among her other screen credits are Miss Congeniality, Bewitched, Two Weeks Notice, You've Got Mail, and the forthcoming What's Your Number?.
