The cast and creative team have been announced for Objects in the Mirror, a Goodman Theatre-commissioned world premiere by Charles Smith. Helmed by resident director Chuck Smith, Objects in the Mirror will run April 29-June 4, with an opening night on May 8.

The new play is inspired by the playwright's real-life friendship with a Liberian refugee-turned-actor, Shedrick Yarkpai. The production was developed through the 2015 New Stages festival and "brings to life the gripping account of one Liberian refugee's attempts to find peace by exposing a potentially dangerous lifelong secret."

The cast includes Daniel Kyri (Shedrick Yarkpai), Breon Arzell (Zaza Workolo), Allen Gilmore (John Workolo), Ryan Kitley (Rob Mosher), and Lily Mojekwu (Luopu Workolo), who reprises her role from the 2015 New Stages developmental production.

The creative team includes Riccardo Hernandez (sets), Birgit Rattenborg-Wise (costumes), John Culbert (lights), Ray Nardelli (sound), and Mike Tutaj (projections).
