In the play, Caleb Farley is the youngest man ever to show up at Mrs. Duke's cabins, a ramshackle retreat in the Nevada desert and one of the few places men can go to secure a quick divorce in 1950s America. Caleb claims he fled his Hollywood home for the same reason as the other men in camp -- to shed the lives and wives they've known, and loved, to begin anew. But in an era of heightened fears and political distrust, accusations that Caleb is hiding more than just a broken heart test each man's loyalty -- to country and to one another.
Lenox, who will play Mrs. Duke, returns to MTC after her critically acclaimed performance in Doubt, for which she received Tony, Drama Desk, and Lucille Lortel awards. She recently appeared in Encores' production of Cotton Club Parade, and her many other New York credits include Ain't Misbehavin', Caroline, or Change, Chicago, Dinah Was, Dreamgirls, Kiss Me, Kate, and Something You Did.
Additional cast and creative team members will be announced in the near future.
