Geoffrey Arend, Anjali Bhimani , Brian Bielawski, Yusef Bulos, Josh Casaubon, Ron Domingo, Aaron Staton, Rita Wolf, and Waleed F. Zuaiter will star in the American premiere production of David Greig's The American Pilot, scheduled to begin performances on November 2 at Manhattan Theatre Club, Stage II and to open officially on November 21. The show will be helmed by MTC artistic director Lynne Meadow.

The play concerns a pilot who crash lands in a rural village in a war-torn country. Should the villagers in the region help him, murder him, or use him as a pawn in a dangerous game with the enemy? The American Pilot had its world premiere at London's Royal Shakespeare Company. Grieg's other works include Pyrenees, which was seen earlier this year in Los Angeles, and San Diego.

The creative team of the MTC production includes Derek McLane (sets), Ilona Somogyi (costumes), Christopher Akerlind (lighting) and Obadiah Eaves (sound). Among Meadow's directing credits are The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, Nine Armenians, and A Small Family Business.
