Horizon Theatre Rep will presents the New York premiere of David Greig's celebrated translation of Albert Camus' classic drama Caligula at Theatre Row's Kirk Theatre, December 4-30. The production, which will open officially on December 7, will be directed by Rafael De Mussa, who will also appear in the show.

Greig's translation, which premiered at London's Donmar Warehouse, is set in an unspecified country during the 20th century, where the charismatic leader Caligula is given absolute freedom to challenge social convention in pursuit of personal obsession. Following the death of his beloved sister, Emperor Caligula deserts his people and honored position for three days and three nights. He returns with a single objective: to understand the meaning of life.

The show's cast includes Gustav Bodor, Jeff Campanella, Ben Gougeon, Israel Gutierrez, Quester D. Hannah, Tabetha Lorina-Baker, Romy Nordlinger, Chris Triana, Jordan Turchin, Miles Warner, and Brandon Wood.

The production features set design by Peter R. Feuchtwanger, costume design by Jennifer Nweke, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, fight direction by Rick Sordelet, and sound design by Michael J. Whalen.
