The Mint Theater will once again present Githa Sowerby's Rutherford & Son, which will perform February 4-April 1, with an opening on February 27. Richard Corley, who directed the Mint's original presentation of the play in 2001, will once again helm the production.

Set in the industrial north of England, the play tells the story of a father determined to do whatever it takes to ensure the success and succession of the family glassworks, started by his own father, but now in danger of shattering. His eldest son, working in secret has discovered a process that could save the firm, cutting costs by one third -- but he refuses to share it with his father unless he "gets his price."

Robert Hogan will star as Rutherford, with the cast also featuring Eli James, Allison Mclemore, James Patrick Nelson, Sandra Shipley, Dale Soules, Sara Surre, and David Van Pelt.

The production will have set design by Vicki R. Davis, costume design by Charlotte Palmer-Lane, lighting design by Nicole Pearce, and sound design by Ellen Mandel and Jane Shaw.
