Casting has been set for the world premiere of Jordan Harrison's The Amateurs, part of the Vineyard Theatre's 2017-18 season. Performances begin Thursday, February 8, with opening night set for Tuesday, February 27. Oliver Butler directs.

In The Amateurs, a scrappy troupe of pageant players races across 14th-century Europe, struggling to outrun the Black Death — and medieval subscribers. The arrival of a mysterious new actor sends Hollis, the leading lady, in search of answers that can only be found off-script...and soon one century's plague begins to look a lot like another, more recent one.

The company will include Kyle Beltran, Quincy Tyler Bernstine, Michael Cyril Creighton, Greg Keller, Jennifer Kim, and Thomas Jay Ryan.

The Amateurs was originally commissioned by South Coast Repertory and received a staged reading as part of the Goodman Theatre's New Stages Festival.
