The world premiere production of Max Posner's The Treasurer recently began performances at Playwrights Horizons. Directed by David Cromer (The Band's Visit), the production is scheduled to open September 26 for its limited run through October 22. Check out photos from the production in the gallery below.

The cast of The Treasurer will feature Marinda Anderson (Bella: An American Tall Tale), Pun Bandhu (Wit), Tony Award winner Deanna Dunagan (August: Osage County), and Tony Award nominee Peter Friedman (Hamlet).

Ida Armstrong (Dunagan) is broke, lonely and fading fast. And she's spending all of her children's money, forcing her son (Friedman) to assume the unwanted role of The Treasurer: an arrangement that becomes untenable the more he questions his devotion to her. In this darkly funny, sharply intimate portrait, Max Posner chronicles the strained ties between a son and his aging mother, and the hell of a guilty conscience.

The creative team will include scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by David Hyman, lighting design by Tony Award winner Bradley King, sound design by winner Mikhail Fiksel, and projection design by Lucy Mackinnon. The production stage manager is Brett Anders.
